Pocatello, ID

Pocatello (pics) is home to Idaho State University.  I’d like to tell you about other fabulous reasons to visit Pocatello but honestly our reason for being here has more to do with scheduling.  We needed an intermediate stop between Idaho Falls and our planned stop for the Labor Day weekend in Ogden, Utah.

Island Park, ID

After having spent a total of 8 days in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, we took a short break in Island Park, ID,  When exiting YNP through the west entrance you immediately pass through the town of West Yellowstone, Montana.  This visit to Montana doesn’t last long, however, since Highway 20 turns south and you enter Idaho and very shortly come to Island Park.

There’s not really much of a town but there is a nearby lake and plenty of fishing and hunting opportunities.  We parked for 3 nights at the Sawtelle Mountain Resort where we once again had full hookups and WiFi service.  This gave us some time to catch up on email, blog posts, organize photos, do some laundry and clean the motorhome inside and out.  It was a pleasant and productive stopover.
