August 29, 2017 Whew, it was very warm last night. This black lava rock really absorbs the heat during the day and then releases it at night. It only cooled down to about 75° inside, that’s warm! The lava rock also emits a strong sulphur smell.
August 28, 2017 The campground at Craters of the Moon is first come, first served. I thought there would be more sites available if I arrive on Monday instead of Sunday. So that’s partly why I stayed at Silver Creek West last night.
August 27, 2017 I arrive at Silver Creek West Access near Picabo about 10 this morning. This is a fishing access site that permits camping, no fee. There are several sites around a loop. I back in to a site that is right on the creek and get set up. It’s nice to arrive at camp this early in the day!
Running around Boise.. August 26, 2017 Saturday morning I board I-84 and cross into Idaho. I’m going to stop at Boise to buy some things that haven’t been available in the smaller towns I have passed through. As I’m traveling along on 84, I see a Camping World store.
