    We made sure that we had a map of the Theme Park. I gave each to my children and we divided ourselves into two groups. The teenagers were in one group and the adults with young ones in another group. This way, the children will not miss their rides because of our limited time at the park.The children love the thrill ride and with the map, they can...

    Once you get in at the Silverwood Theme Park, the staff at the entry gate gives every child a band on the arm. These bands are only given to families who bought the birthday packages. Tell your children not to lose them (even the adults) because these are the tickets to get free drinks in the restaurant or any place in the park. The drinks in the...

  • Idaho Potatoes

    Potatoes. Some find them bland....others find them very tasty. From french fries to baked potatoes, you can't go wrong with an Idaho potato! Idaho, when most people hear the name, the first thing that usually comes to mind is a big fat juicy potato. The potato is not actually a vegetable, but a root! If you plant a potato, more potatoes will grow...

  • Idaho Falls

    Wierd place....the nightime there is kind of creepy, with a deserted downtown.There was this annoying kid in Domino's where we were trying to get directions back to the major highway. He kept screaming at his manager and co-workers because he didn't know where a street was. The Mormon temple was very pretty though, with the floodlights on it. To...

    Visit Craters of the Moon National Monument. Although I must admit it wasn't that exhilirating. If you are interested in volcanic rock, then this is the place for you, but not worth the detour that we did.

    I would definitely take visitors to Lake Coeur d'Alene. It's the hot spot for all tourists in North Idaho. The best part about North Idaho is, of course, the mountains. North Idaho is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It has several lakes and rivers, ski resorts, etc. You will be blessed to visit this area.

    This is me climbing 'Sunrise Spire' This was about a 150 foot climb. It was a really fun climb! The top of this spire, though, was so tiny and skinny, you had to stay clipped in in order to avoid falling!!

    Go to City Of Rocks! If you are a rock climber, this place is paradise! I went on a trip with My Mom and a bunch of other people. It was so fun. My fondest memory of City of Rocks was climbing the 'Lost Arrow Spire.' With myself only being 5'1' tall, there were some easy reaches for tall people that were literally long leaps of terror for me!

    Of course, Idaho has skiing. And the powder is ever bit as good as Utah's. Idaho just wants to keep it more of a secret. There are several options to ski the mountains of Idaho but my favorites are on near opposite sides of the state. My first choice in the north is a little know ski area called Silver Mountian (see the picture for the map). This...

    Take your time. The country is stunning. You don't need an expensive camera to bring home such beauty. If you like to ski, check into Silver Mountain and Grand Targee. While visiting Grand Targee stay in Driggs or Victor. These towns are a great place to use as a home base from where to take day drives. Like for example West Yellowstone. This is...
