Rainbow Lake RV Park in Rexburg, ID, was a nice place to spend two rainy days. There was a Walmart and a Patagonia Outlet there and an ALCO. We had never gone in an ALCO before, but it was similar to a Big Lots. One neat thing about Rexburg was that as we were entering the area, we could see the back side of the Tetons. What a temptation to head for the Tetons!!!!
After Rexburg, we drove to North Salt Lake for one night. Hayden finally got to go swimming again! The pool was so cold, though, that he couldn't stand it more than 30 minutes. I have this feeling the pools are going to feel much better as we go south!
The drive from North Salt Lake to Vernal was beautiful. We did not come through Flaming Gorge as we did last year (white knuckles on the nine switchbacks), thankfully!!!! Flaming Gorge is really something to see, but not good to drive with a fifith wheel in tow! Still, coming in on Hwy. 40 was beautiful with the reds and yellows, buttes, mesas, lakes, and rivers. The time passed quickly.
After we settled in at Vernal, we got haircuts at a shop that is on the opposite side of the campground office. We are going to need these short haircuts as the weather gets hot!!! We are here for three nights, then one in Richfield, and two in Bryce Canyon.
Tomorrow we will go to Dinosaur National Monument. We loved it last year and just missed the opening of the new Visitors' Center. We look forward to seeing that tomorrow. We will probably visit the Field House (natural history museum) Wednesday. It is a neat place, plus it has a Smith's grocery, Walmart, and K-Mart.
