Jerome, ID High 90 Low 64
We left Wells Friday morning for our next stop in Jerome, ID. The weather folks were saying that a storm would be moving into our route and we wanted to find a spot to sit til the storm passed - preferable a spot with no trees. The fairgrounds in Jerome were just the place to be. $10 a night for electric and water. Pretty? - well it's a parking lot. But the fairgrounds are green and well taken care of. That works for us.
We figured we would see if there was any water flowing this visit. Shoshone Falls are referred to as the Niagara of the West. They are 212 feet tall and 900 feet wide which makes them taller than Niagara Falls.
The road down the canyon to the viewing area is narrow and winding but they allow RV's on it. (Not our RV). The walls of the canyon are beautiful.
There were hundreds of people at the Falls with very limited parking and they were not controlling the number of cars heading down the canyon. So when you got to the bottom there was no place to park. Unless you're Jim. He never fails to get a parking spot. Not one of the hundreds of people there was wearing a mask. But I put mine on to go take the pictures. Jim stayed in the truck away from people. Needless to say it didn't take me long to get the pictures and we left, freeing up one parking spot for the twenty cars we passed going down.
Looking down river from the Falls. There were too many people down on the viewing stand so I didn't go down there.
We made one other stop but that place deserves its own post.
