Then, to the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in Orem, Utah.

On the way home, we stopped at the Golden Spike National Monument.

They have replicas of the two engines that met there.

Continuing north, we saw some smoke from a fire near Hailey, Idaho

Then to Craters of the Moon National Monument.

Lots of lava rocks

I tried to paste two pictures together to get the panorama shot of the Sawtooth Mountains with the Salmon River in the forground. I may not be real good at this (yet?)
