City of Rocks - IDAHO - Roadtrippin'

Roadtrippin! With our little camper kitten Ginger. We adopted her a few weeks ago and took her camping the second day we got her so she is very used to sitting in the car and living in a camper. Day 1 We made a pit stop at the only gas station at the Sublet Idaho exit on our road trip to City Of Rocks. We stopped for bathrooms but loved the petting zoo, turns out they don't have bathrooms!? A gas station without bathrooms? Thanks for nothing Sublet gas station. (not salt project approved, even with those cute alpaca's, because

Island Park - IDAHO

Sorry this post is a year late. oops. We have so much fun in the summer, sometimes we get super behind on blog posts. Island Park has always had a special place in our hearts. The forest, the river, friends, and fun. We stay in my besties cabin when we visit, but there are a ton of air bnbs to rent if you want to visit. You can tube the river, fish, visit Yellowstone (check out our "1 day in Yellowstone with kids" post), and just enjoy the great outdoors. On our way home we missed the exit. There wasn't

Mesa Falls - Idaho

Mesa Falls is a short drive from Island Park Idaho. The falls are as tall as a 10 story building and totally worth the trip! The Mesa Falls Visitor Center occupies the historic Big Falls Inn, built around 1915 by the Snake River Electric Light and Power Company. With its spectacular setting, the Inn was a popular spot for social gatherings in its past lives. It had its day as a hotel, a cafe, and a dance hall. Later it became a way station on the Yellowstone Highway for ranchers, sportsmen, and tourists. After acquiring the inn from Montana Power

Paris Springs Hike at Paris Springs Campground | 12 Utah Staycations

After eating a delicous Picnic at the Paris Tabernacle, we set our sights upon Paris Springs! Stephanie had visited Paris Springs years ago and said she thought they were hot Springs. You know The Salt Project loves Hot Springs! Come to find out, they aren't HOT at all! Haha. Either way, it's a beautiful place to visit. Paris Springs is actually located inside of Paris Springs Campground in Idaho. The kids are always looking for some kind of wildlife and this time we found a snake! Driving through the campground we noticed multiple birdhouses, they looked handmade too. The Paris

Roadside Oddities Around Bear Lake | 12 Utah Staycations

We really haven't spent much time around Bear Lake, we've spent even less time going around Bear Lake. In fact, we've NEVER gone all the way around Bear Lake. Since it was rainy, we decided that now was the time to take the drive! We got word that there was a Shoe House in St. Charles Idaho (the other side of Bear Lake) so of COURSE, we had to go! We had just finished up Kayaking and Bear Lake looked so blue that day. So here are just a few fun things we found on our drive ALL the WAY
