Judy and I got a late departure from Colorado Springs due to a early morning snow shower for the 750 mile ride to Heyburn, Idaho. We initially canceled our departure due to the snow but it had stopped snowing by 8:15 AM and the skies began clearing so we decided to hitch up and leave. By the time we reached Denver the skies were totally clear. It was a bit WINDY though.

We did not reach our scheduled stopping point, Rock Springs, WY (432 miles) until 7:40 due to our late departure. We pulled into the Wal-Mart there and found several RV’s there already. Judy and I went inside and picked up a few things and then called it a day.
Driving in Wyoming
Judy and I pulled out of Wally World at 5:15 and continued west on I80. After leaving Wyoming, our journey included Utah and Idaho. The temps ranged from 24’ to 72’ when we arrived in Heyburn, ID. Once we got over the mountains in Utah it warmed up rapidly. Since we got an early start today we had covered the 325 miles by 12:30. After the long drive yesterday a short drive was welcomed by both of us. I used my Allstays APP to find a Rv park. The Country RV Village is located just off I84. It is a nice park to stay in after a day’s travel. The park is very clean and neat with many nice long pull throughs. The cost of the stay is $27.00 with a discount. Judy and I changed our overnight plans for a three night stay. We adjusted out stay longer because we changed out arrival date at Pelton Park from Thursday until Sat. In doing so, we will arrive at the park the same day as our coworkers.

Judy has already scheduled a day trip for Thursday to Shoshone Falls and Dierkes Lake. I am going to use the down time to get the oil changed in the truck tomorrow.
That is all for today. Thanks for stopping by.
