So, a couple posts back I was to tired (after enjoying a long massage) to tell you much about my trek of the day. So, here it is with a handy map. Instead of taking the “short” freeway route my GPS gave me to go from Logan, Utah to Lava Hot Springs, Idaho, I took this scenic route instead. I have been trying to find, or sometimes stumbling upon, scenic routes this entire trip. If you are away from the freeway then you are usually guaranteed something pretty amazing to see and experience. I drove through Logan Canyon to reach Bear Lake; this is where the map begins. I have to admit that my focus was on taking pictures more than visiting all of these sites, but I was able to visit a few. (See last few posts) I plan on returning to visit more sites along this route and explore more of Idaho. (Like Cousin Kim said, I need to visit ” So many great places…Jackson (2 hours beyond Soda Springs), Grand Teton National Park, and Yellowstone (another 2 hours beyond Jackson)”
I just could not pass the Oregon/California Trail Center up-I loved the Oregon Trail computer game as a kid!
Along this route I also saw:
Foodie Alert: Bear Lake area is known for being the perfect place to grow raspberries!
You can buy fresh raspberries and taste the best raspberry shakes around!
I gobbled mine up so fast I forgot to take a picture of it!
