The truck had a major problem and was going to be costly and take time. Time we had. We were planning on making a stop in Utah at Zion National Park, so by deleting that from our plans, we had time. The wonderful people at the shop provided us with a couple of rides and even a loaner car once.
We explored the little town of Idaho Falls. Originally called Eagle Rock, there is a basically man constructed river fall system that provides power for the town. The downtown area has a lot of personality and is going through a revitalization project. This part of the trip was a drag for the costs, but once again, we got to explore something we would usually drive by and had our trip enhanced.
So, after a few days, we got onto the road again.
