Idaho, It's not Just Potatos. OK, it is...

Boise, United States

How could I go to Idaho and not go to the Idaho Potato Museum. The museum has lots of potato planting and harvesting equipment, as well as many facts about potatoes. Of course a large collection of potato mashers and Mr. Potato heads.

My next stop was going to be a tour of the world’s first Nuclear power plant, but they were closed until next Summer. I decided not to wait. it seems that more nuclear reactors have been made in central Idaho than anywhere else in the world. I guess they need the power to bake all those potatoes. So I moved onto the next stop 10 Miles down the road. The Craters of the Moon National Monument. These lava beds were created between 2 and 15 thousand years ago and made it very difficult for the early settlers to pass through the area.

Last stop, Twin Falls Idaho. The Location of Evel Knievels Famed Snake River Canyon Jump. Because the actual Jump site is on private property, it isn't possible to go to the site, but the arrow in this pic shows the dirt ramp he used to launch the Skycycle.

The trip is winding down. Only a few stops left tomorrow and Thursday. Then I'm on the redeye home Thursday night.
