twin falls

we had a fun little get away and saw A LOT of cool stuff. the shoshone ice caves, perrine memorial bridge, craters of the moon, malad gorge, and niagara springs. oh yeah, don’t forget the hotel pool, that was a popular spot:)

the perrine memorial bridge was absolutely stunning…

craters of the moon

we took a trip to the twin falls area last weekend to see some new sights.  craters of the moon exceeded my expectations.  the caves were pretty cool, literally and figuratively.  we spend all day exploring the caves. it was crazy to think that LAVA had been flowing through the very caves we were walking through. loved it.

the marker 14 fire came right up to the lake.  we had perfect spots to watch the helicopters fill their buckets to dump on the fire.

at one spot the fire came right down to the lake, it’s crazy how loud the crackle and pop of a little fire can be!
