Vacations are great!

I think I came back from vacation more tired than when I left home.   However, I don't care because I had a great time.   My husband has been wanting to go to Idaho for years.   Why?  Don't really know, but he has talked about it for years.    I wasn't really thrilled with the choice, but decided I might as well get into it.   Getting to Idaho from Key West is no small accomplishment.   On August 5th we left Key west early in the morning and arrived at Salt Lake City Airport, late afternoon.   Rented a car and proceeded to find our hotel (thank you Garmin).   We spent from Friday afternoon until Sunday around noon in Salt Lake City.   It is an incredibley clean town.    We saw the Great Salt Lake and most of the down town area.   We also saw all the down town area.   Nice stop on the way to Idaho. 

On our way to Ketchum Idaho

Another Mountain road.

A long way from the mountains, but they are beautiful to look at from quite a distance.

A bird in the Boise Airport - do you think he was waiting for  a flight????

Too bad I'm not into white water rafting - lots of opportunities for that.

Water, Mountains and Pine Trees - who could ask for more.  
On Sunday we went to Boise Idaho.   A quick little flight.   We also rented a car there.   We saw all the downtown area (lots of nice eating establlishments), the zoo and spent two days driving around the mountains.   One day we covered about 400 miles and the other nearly as much.   Had a really great time and saw some absolutely incredible views.
