3 Island State Park at Glenns Ferry, Idaho

We had the fortune of helping John & Jen start on their nursery. Jen was the
Director of the Project, including Elvis the cat, who hung the chandelier.
John watched in utter amazement. Personally I’ve never seen a cat climb a ladder…
but there are firsts for everything.

John and Michelle painted the room. I cleaned windows that had hard water deposits.
Michelle & John also did major paint stripping off a nice dresser for the cricket.
Jen wasn’t allowed to participate in any projects that had a hint of chemical(s).

But all things come to an end and our trip to Salt Lake did also.
Today we left for Idaho.

We have E service on the phone and that’s it. A nice day of driving and only two
new experiences with Huey. That would be… unexpected major wind gusts.
That has a way of clamping up the old gluteus Maximus!

But we survived and will pay more attention to swerving cars and trucks that are
within sight. This 3 Island State Park is great. Big spaces and green. Not surprising
though because they’ve had the sprinklers on since we arrived.
We are on the Snake River, about 260 miles northwest of Salt Lake City. We’ve taken
a bike ride already, and will go for a walk after dinner.

Pony Express RV Resort Salt Lake City, UT

We left the gnats on Antelope Island, can hardly wait to stay there again but without the gnats.  I tend to correlate things together.  So now I am of the opinion when you see buffalo and antelope together you have gnats. So as the song goes “oh give me a home where the buffalo roam and I’ll show you a place full of gnats”. But Antelope Island is one beautiful site to stay!

We are now at Pony Express a real nice park with full hookups, showers, bathrooms and all you could ask for, plus a 20 mile bike path right outside the gate.  Last night we took a bike ride with Jenny on the bike path.  Today i washed the gnats and bugs off the windshield, mirrors, and the jeep.  Also had time to remove the road grime from the rain in Monument Valley.



On the way to Jen’s

We have arrived at Antelope State Park in the Salt Lake outside Salt Lake City.
This is a wonderful island and campsite (dry camping only). We saw buffalo on
the way in, but no Antelope yet.

We picked our daughter Jenny up so she could see Huey. So she is staying with us
tonight to see what it is like. Then tomorrow we move to Pony Express RV resort
for two weeks, visiting and catching up on things that we have found that need to
be fixed. Plus we will load Jens Honda 750 on the the cruiser lift for practice.

The no-see-ums or gnats here are ferocious if you are outside and stand still for
a moment. So we are inside for a bit before we tour the island in the Jeep,
please wind come up to about 10 miles an hour!
