Where I stayed
Rick and Shirley's house
We got up in the morning at Idaho falls and saw the city for the first time (we had arrived after dark on Tuesday after the marathon day). What a nice little town. I did my 1/2 hour walk beside the river, which has a dam running down the center of the river with water spilling over into the main channel from the flume to the hydroelectric plants. I have never seen that construction before. We left for Eagle, Idaho across the southern end of the state. Eagle is very near Boise. The drive was flat and mostly high prairie 9again), and we had a 35 mph headwind all the way. We saw lots of farm fields (some of which were potatoes I guess).
We got to my brother Rick's and his wife Shirley's house around 2:00 in the afternoon
You can see from the picture that Rich and I both fished from the same end of the gene pool (the shallow end). We share the shape of our Great Grandfather Isaac Heilmann, and, we find, several other genetic defects leading to hypertension, etc., etc. We had a wonderful time and this was the high point of the trip so far.
