Random photos for your Friday...

Hello,  How was your week?  I do hope it was a happy one.
As for my hubby and I, we have been busy exploring this week. 
 One of the best parts of being on the road.



We took a day trip into Jackson Hole WY..  
And it was completely different than what I had expected it to be.  
That is one busy place. With Lots and Lots of shopping.  
Very touristy but a cool place to visit.


We took another day trip into the town we will be calling home for a month.
 Victor, Idaho.  It’s a cute little town, 
with a bike path that leads all the way into Driggs, ID. 
I guess its time to dust off our bikes.
The best part about our next stop is that we will have power.
We have been dry camping for a month now..  So it will be nice to
have some modern conveniences.


Yesterday we took a trip into Idaho Falls.  
We walked around Old Town (I think every city has an old town now days).  
And now I know why they called it Idaho Falls. 
You should see the beautiful falls right in the middle of the city.


But for the next couple of days we will not be leaving our campsite.
 Except to do a little bit of hiking..  No Biking here..  Its way to hilly.  
And of course I will be trying to capture little critters with my camera.



  Now that you have heard how my week has been I would love
to hear whats been going on with you.

Hope you enjoy your weekend. and for those
of you living in the states, Hope you have a nice long weekend.

I know I've said it before, but I SO want to visit Idaho! It's been at the top of my travel wish list for a couple of years now.
Your photos are amazing! That first one - that is exactly how I picture Idaho to be.
Sounds like you're having a lovely time. :)

Every day is a new adventure for you, just as you had planned I guess. So many amazing places to see and best of all, time to explore them as you go.

Wow, I just love your photos! You're amazing with that camera, Linda. Thank you for always sharing your sights and travels. Well, as for me, my summer vacation is over and I am back to my classroom getting ready for a brand new class of second graders. Unpacking, setting up, planning first day activities and math lessons...! Kath

such beautiful pictures. I have driven through Idaho on my way to and from Washington. It's such a beautiful place. At least what I saw of it. If I could live somewhere else in this country it would be out there. But, I was never happy away from my native new england.

Wow, your photos are SO amazing, Linda! What beautiful countryside you are seeing. Those rolling hills really remind me of where I grew up in Northern California. I miss it!

Wow Linda, your photos are just amazing...so beautiful, especially the first one. You look and sound as though you are very settled into your 'travelling/ touring/ day-tripping/camping routine now as if it is the most normal way in the world to live and isn't this what every one does lol. Thanks for sharing, happy trails. xx

Yay! You found the antler arches. LOL Dry camping...I've never heard that term, but I'm sure it will be heaven to have some power for a change. That area has so much to see. You're really going to love it there I'm sure. For me the first part of the week was all about my dad and the last about trying to get caught up. hee hee Keep posting those pics girlfriend! Hugs!

I've wanted to travel to that part of the country for a long time. I loved CO and NM and I imagine you are seeing some real Western scenery. We have been staying home this summer but getting projects done around the house...which is good! Have fun! Get those bikes out!
