Thursday, August 6, 2015, Three Island Crossing State Park, Glenns Ferry, ID, Day 2 - 0 Miles Today, 8643.3 For the Trip

A quiet, relaxing day, other than the heat. It started out cool, but was in the 90°Fs by afternoon. I did take a couple of photographs of the "wildlife" - a bird nest that was not as interesting as the last one, the parents, and a cool looking spider. About 2" across.

After that I drove to the Oregon Trail History & Education Center, a building at another part of the state park. They have a bunch of exhibits, a video, and lots of information about the Oregon Trail & its travelers. The name of the park comes from the three islands that formed one of the few places along the trail where it was possible for wagons to ford the Snake River. No photos, but worth a visit if you are in the area.

After that is was back to the campsite and sitting out in the chair. I tuned on the AC to cool down the trailer, but prefer to sit outside as long as there is some shade & a breeze.

It was too hot (or I was too lazy) to cook, so I drove to the local supermarket for some Tom's Fried Chicken & a salad for dinner. Not the greatest fried chicken of the trip, but it beats cooking!

Until Next Time -
