A new state for the trip - Idaho. I won't be here too long, at least this time; I'm heading to Utah tomorrow. A long drive, but an interesting State Park. Bruneau Dunes State Park has a public observatory, which would have been nice, but it is only open on weekends. They also have sand dunes, so I had to take some photos. They are available at today's lakeshoreImages page.

I'm in site 80, which is electric & water for $16.66 per night (until the weekend & for over 62). And, the showers are free. What a deal!

Speaking (well, typing) of showers, the bathroom at the Wildhorse Casino was interesting. 100 sites, one combined toilet & shower, and one additional shower. They did say they were doing renovations, but there is only one bathroom building so there can't be too many more stalls when the project is finished. On top of that, while there was a shower curtain that kept the drying area floor dry, there were no benches, one hook, no soap dishes, in fact, nothing but the floor to put things on. On the other hand, the water was nice & hot...

Back to Bruneau Dunes SP - Definitely worth a visit, particularly on the weekend when the observatory is open, but even during the week a nice stop over. Two campgrounds, the Broken Wheel  with lots of shade that was mostly reserved, and the other (Eagle Cove) more open, both as to shade & available sites. Some 50 amp sites are available at the Broken Wheel Campground.

Dinner was Orange Chicken & Rice. It was really too hot for the meal, but it was the only one I was ready to make.

Until Tomorrow -
