Yesterday we left Ely and headed north. Soon after leaving Nevada we were in Twin Falls, Idaho. Right in the middle of town the car said a tire was low. When Duke checked it he could hear the air coming out. Apparently we hit a nail. It came in through the tread and out through the side wall. So we got to spend almost three hours at Les Schwab in Twin Falls buying four new tires and having them installed.
We stayed last night at one of my favorite B&Bs, the Blue Heron near Rigby, Idaho. What a setting, it is right on the Snake River. We didn’t get here until eight so we had wine and cheese and crackers for dinner and watched the full moon come up over the river. This morning we had a yummy breakfast and then walked down to the river to finish our coffee.
Tonight we will be in the Tetons.
Duke and I are on the road again. This time for a one week trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons. We are meeting our friends Bonnie and Brian there.
Yesterday we drove from Reno to Ely on Highway 50 otherwise known as the loneliest road. It is a beautiful drive. Nevada is a beautiful state!
Not far from Austin we stopped at a sign for the Hickison Petroglyph Recreation Site. There was a dirt road and then a trail. We hiked the trail for about a mile but never found the petroglyphs. Next time!
When we return Duke and I will each be teaching H&R Block basic tax classes. It is great class. I took it 3 years ago and highly recommend it, whether or not you are interested in working for Block. If you are interested and have questions please let me know. If you want to sign up there is a link on the H&R Block web site.
We stayed last night at the Jailhouse Hotel and Casino in Ely. We had a nice room and a great steak dinner in their restaurant. Today it is on to Rigby, Idaho.
