Decided to explore more of Idaho and Bear World was recommended. On my way found several other spots along I-15 North where adult folks and families can explore.
Exit 63 Caribou National Forest – great place for hikers
Exit 67 Fort Hall Museum – in Pocatello takes you back to the world of trappers, and explorers. Great kid visit.
Exit 69 Museum of Natural History -state natural history museum on the grounds of the University of Idaho, Pocatello.
Exit 80 The Shoshone-Bannock Casino and Tribal Museum – the cleanest casino I’ve ever visited. The Camas Sports Grill had a variety of reasonably priced, tasty selections, with friendly servers. While no wins here for me it was a fun visit. On the day of my visit the Tribal Museum was closed, call for hours.
Exit 93 – The Potato Museum
Exit 309 – Viet Nam Memorial – Lest we forget..
Exit 310 – Historic Idaho Falls – what a beautiful spot. The River Walk along the falls hosts unforgettable views with colorful flowers, and restaurants/shops are nearby.
Exit 322 Jefferson County lists a TV and Pioneer Museum – another option to explore as well as Squealers Fun Park which offers miniature golf, go karts, and rock climbing.
Arrived on a balmy late afternoon in Lava Hot Springs. After motel check in immediately rented a tube for the rapids.
Tubes can be rented by the hour, half day, or day, for a reasonable rate. This fee includes transportation to the beginning of the rapids and pick up at the end of the run. Takes 10 to 15 minutes to make a run through the rapids.
Besides the tubing there are hot springs pools in town to soak away aches and pains. The water temperatures in each of the pools vary starting at 102 and peaking at 112 degrees.. Feels so good…
And while there take in the flowers as they are beautiful.
