An Interesting Rest Stop (On I-15 between Idaho Falls and Pocatello, ID)

Taken: October 26, 2009

Ran into one of the nicest rest stops I have ever seen – Hell’s Half Acre..  Nice interpretive hiking trail, an easy one, and a more difficult one.  All things labeled.  Nice benches, nice picnic tables with walls to shelter from the wind.  Lots of wind.  I’ll just post the photos… they will speak for themselves.

     Don’t like wind.

Snow is still chasing me.  And the wind is cold.  On to UT… my Eighth State to paddle.

In 2006, I was shopping for a wheelchair. By 2007, I had new knees, better health and by 2008 a kayak. In Aug 2013, I kayaked my 49th state, Alaska, at the Holgate Glacier and in May 2014, I kayaked Hawaii, my 50th state, to celebrate my 70th Birthday and the finale to the wonderful adventure of Kayaking America? Next up... Solo Hiking the Arizona Trail, 820 miles? Maybe. Still healing from shoulder and trying to decide.
