'Past Tents' First Journey

Very warm and sunny today in Heyburn Idaho. Camped on the Snake River again. Nice newer park with modern pull through for 20 dollars. On to Northern Utah tomorrow morning.

Robert, you sure have been finding some nice places to stay on your trip. What source of information are you using to find these campgrounds and RV parks? And enjoy quality time with your father. Loren

On your way there, did you happen to go by, or through, Hell's Canyon? We went there on the inaugural trip with our 19. We spent a week at Wallowa Lake State Park in NE Oregon, and loved exploring the area. Pretty cool looking down on the Snake River from the heights of the canyon walls. This canyon, though not as wide, is deeper than the Grand Canyon.

We would love to go back some time.

BTW, you do know your awning strap will slide right out the end of the roll? That way you don't have do wrap in around the arm like that.

I second the trip to the falls. It's just one of those places you don't see back east. It's also got a view of the canyon Evil Knievl tried to jump.

Thanks Jim. I've been to Hells Canyon before but on this trip it was slightly out of the way. Will definitely head up there again sometime. Yes, I knew that about the strap but this way I know where it is.

Thanks Loren. We use a lot of different sources but mainly we use the big Good Sam 2015 directory (formerly Woodall's, which I preferred) Passport America, the BLM website and Rvparkreviews.com. so far its worked out.

And of course forum members recommendations. I'm sorry you spent so much time in the rain in Oregon, truly. But we all know there's a reason Oregon is GREEN

Thanks for the pics and allowing the rest of us to enjoy your trip home.

Safe travels, always.
