Southern Idaho is flat, but not level, gaining about 2250 feet between Fruitland on the West and Pocatello on the East. In between some 13 billion potatoes are harvested each year.
The drive eastward was uneventful, which continues to be a good thing. 19 mpg, but flat has its advantages. We stopped at Three Islands State Park to give the pups some grass time and discovered an absolutely wonderful campground and Oregon Trail interpretive center.
Lava Hot Springs has a great place to soak, a series of pools with increasing temperatures from warm to hot. Tomorrow we’ll walk the short distance to town to enjoy the waters.
