This fall, over Labor Day weekend, we went camping near Swan Valley, Idaho. I thought I would post a few pictures from that trip.
We had to do some preparation on the trailer, like sewing up some rips in the canvas on the tent trailer. This is Amanda’s handiwork.
We also replaced the elastic ropes in the canvas, the old ones were pretty shredded.
We are fortunate that the Tateoka Family is as sharing with their camp trailer as they are, otherwise we may have been sleeping in a tent again! The Darrington Family let us trade pickups with them so we could all ride in the same pickup to Swan Valley together. Thank you to both!
We set up at Falls Campground near the Snake River. Enjoyed a couple of days there.
We really enjoyed the campground. Some great fly fishing nearby in the Snake River, there were tons of fly fisherman everywhere we went. We hiked over to the falls too.
We did take some time to drive over to Plano where the Hemsley clan had their start in Idaho. There are multiple Richard Hemsleys buried there.
Here is a picture of the house Hemsley built.
We also stopped in Rexburg at the temple and in Ririe on the way back where I was coaxed out of a few dollars for some kid who was short of some cash. I offered to pay the difference and somehow ended up paying for their entire goodie stash!
We had a great little campfire.
We introduced Aliza to cattails. We were regretting it later due to the mess it tracked everywhere.
We also gave them little containers to go find bugs. Boy, they found plenty.
