Blackfoot, ID High 81 Low 50
We have not done any sight seeing on this trip. So there won’t be much to blog about until we finally get to Montana.
We headed up Highway 93 towards Caliente. Highway 93 is a long stretch of straight road. I really enjoy this route.
We lucked out and were able to get a pull through site at Young’s RV in Caliente and we didn’t have to unhitch the truck. Jim wanted to watch the NASCAR race and the one station we could not get was FOX which is where the race was shown. Bummer. The town also lost power for about two hours and it got quite warm. A couple of folks turned on their generators but we survived just fine.
Lots of snow still on the mountain tops.
Our next stop was in Ely. We stayed in the Hotel Nevada and Gambling Hall parking lot. We were joined by a few trucks for the night but it was quiet and very safe.
We had a lilac bush right outside the door and Jim picked me a flower. I love lilacs. Brings back memories of my Grandma’s back yard.
The next morning we headed further north to Jackpot where we parked in Cactus Pete’s parking lot. They have an RV park right next to the parking lot for $22 a night but we just wanted a place to park for the night. No antenna TV but the park offers a limited cable.
When we were in Las Vegas, we put up a fence to keep Scooter contained so she wouldn’t try going up and down the steps to the bed without us there. That had a consequence we hadn’t counted on. Skittlez tried to dig into the crate to get to Scooter. This is what her nose looks like from digging. That pink spot on the top of her nose isn’t supposed to be there. It’s all supposed to be brown. Not sure what we’re going to do but we’ll have to figure something out.
Tonight we are in one of our favorite RV parks. Fairway RV Park in Blackfoot, ID. This park is actually part of the fairgrounds. It’s $25 a night for water/electric with a dump station. But the sites are level and the girls love running through the grass. It’s never busy even though I’m sure it’s packed during the fair.
We are going to spend two nights here because it is supposed to be windy tomorrow. Friday we head into Montana.
