Discovering Idaho's Snake River Plateau

As it turns out, Southern Idaho was full of unexplored natural wonders for us!  I knew that the Snake River flowed through this area, but had no idea how amazing and gorgeous the Snake River Canyon could be! We'd taken several trips to Idaho to visit Meisha's family in the past, but really hadn't gone out and explored the area much at all. We'd heard tales of the beauty that the Snake River Plateau had to offer, but somehow the surrounding rolling brown hills and abundance of potato fields always left me with a bit of skepticism.   Read more

Exploring Idaho's City of Rocks

We rolled into Almo Idaho around 1AM and came immediately realized something... we don't exactly know how or where to stealth camp in the van when in small towns!  Somehow small town cops weird us out a lot more than big city cops and our comfort in having an explanation as to why we're sleeping in our van is greatly diminished.  After much debate and a bit of driving around, we decided to park at a pullout just outside the city limits of Almo with the intention to vacate early in the morning.  We successfully slept through the night without harassment and headed into the City of Rocks around 6AM to finish our night's sleep among the mountains and crazy rock formations.   Read more

Mammoth Cave and the Weirdest Museum We've Ever Been To

Our adventure truly began as the van rolled out of Anderson Camp and towards Twin Falls.  For the past few months, we'd known that our early August destination would be Eden, Idaho for a family reunion.  This limited our ability to spontaneously travel, but was worth it.  Leaving camp behind, we once again experienced one of the most refreshing feelings in the world, the feeling we refer to as "The Blank Page".

As it turned out, our fellow vagabonding van-based friend Jared had just left Oregon to pursue his own adventures on the open road.  We found out he was going to be in the same part of Idaho at the same time so we had to meet up!  We decided to meet up at the Shoshone Indian Ice Caves just outside of Shoshone, Idaho.  As we were driving, we passed Mammoth Cave and thought maybe it might be better.  We called Jared and everyone decided to give Mammoth a try instead.  The immediate vibe of the place was creepy with old junker cars, strange Hawaiian-ish carved stone heads decorating the entrance.  We walked in through the entrance and met an (unsurprisingly) creepy old man who let us know what the entrance fees were.  We paid the man and our adventure began...   Read more

Free Day at the Denver Botanic Gardens

As often as possible, we tend to look for free things to do. Well, it turns out we had good timing this time around in Denver. The Denver Botanic Gardens just so happened to have a FREE ADMISSION DAY! We packed up our camera and our friend Steve and headed for the gardens. We found the Gardens to be a nice place to take a stroll for the evening and imagined it'd be a great place to have a picnic or simply sit and read while enjoying the surrounding plant life. Meisha had a good time taking a few black and white photos as we walked around the Botanic Gardens, so naturally, we decided to share them with you here. Read more
