Sometimes you are the Tourist Attraction

While stopped at the Flying J to deposit our fees for using Diesel Fuel while driving through Idaho we are approached by several Asian people who are part of a tour group traveling to Yellowstone.  Apparently they have never scene a house on wheels because they start taking photos (with their cell phones!) and then one of them steps aboard!  Always with a smile.  And then another one!.  I was cleaning the front window and one of them takes the squeegy from me and proceeds to help remove the bugs from the front of the RV.  They took so many pictures and I never took one!  We tried to converse but all I got was lots of smile, head shakes.  I did get from one of them that they were traveling to Yellowstone!

 

Idaho Falls

Idaho Falls

We stopped for the evening in Idaho Falls and took a walk along the Snake River.  They have done a really nice job with the riverfront and the river itself.  They have created man made falls as part of the hydroelectric power.  It is beautiful and a very nice walk.  We saw lots of tourists and I think I spotted the same people that toured our RV.  Idaho Falls is the last larger city on the way to Yellowstone so it is a good spot to stop, restock before heading into the woods!

Idaho Falls Idaho Temple

Idaho Falls Idaho Temple

On the eastern bank of the river is LDS compound and this beautiful temple. We only viewed it from across the river.  Along the river we did see lots of students taking a stroll along with the many tourists.  I guess in Idaho Falls kids walk instead of texting on a Thursday evening.  That’s nice.

These geese were out for a stroll also.  Some of them didn’t like all the tourists coming up and taking photos!

On our travels we see lots of different things than we see at home.  This is one.  I don’t remember seeing this type of bird.

Today we will be heading into Grand Teton and Yellowstone for as many days as we can find a campsite.  Photos will be abundant!
