Montana/Idaho Scenes

There was a variety of scenery as we traveled from Canada south across Montana's vastness by Kalisbell and the Flathead Lake into Idaho's farmland with its lack of trees.



Stopping in Twins Falls we passed over the Snake River which winds though the flat land cutting a huge gorge. The river continues its twisting path until it joins up with the Columbia River then flows down into the mighty Pacific Ocean. A source of water that is carefully used to irrigate crops in this thristy land, this is the home of the tasty fattening Idaho potato.



Next we entered Nevada's barren deserts continuing our trip home to Southern Utah.

That is a pretty scary looking bridge! I can't believe the length of the Snake River! I did a white water raft trip in Jackson Hole Wyoming in 1976. Seems like forever ago.

What an amazing country we live in, with a bit of everything and something for everyone.

Wow. Gorgeous landscapes. That last shot with the bridge made my stomach jump. I can't imagine what it was like to build that!
