After about 2 months in Colorado it was time to move on and explore some other states. We loved Colorado, but I honestly had no idea it would be so hot there. That was quite a surprise, so I’m glad to be moving on to some cooler temperatures.
Our next stop was Ashton, Idaho. We enjoyed a very relaxing week there and had some much needed downtime as we prepared for some busy upcoming weeks in Wyoming and Montana. The only sightseeing we did in Ashton was visiting Upper and Lower Mesa Falls. It was so beautiful and Jake said it was the coolest waterfall he has ever seen. It was pretty awesome!
Idaho is so pretty! There are miles and miles of farmland and potato fields, as far as the eye can see. And it was so colorful, but that’s hard to see in pictures. We could also see the Teton mountain range off in the distance.
Of course we had to buy some potatoes while we were in Idaho!
We stayed at Aspen Acres Golf Club and RV Park. It was really nice and shaded which we loved, especially after our last site in Colorado that was so hot. It was a little challenging getting into this site with all the trees, but it was worth it. The weather here was beautiful and the shade was a real blessing!
There was a nice playground at this campground too that the kids enjoyed.
The people that own this campground also own the Five 11 Main Old Fashioned Soda Fountain & Pizzeria. We had dinner there one night and it was so good! The Darth Tater pizza was delicious. It had a white sauce with Idaho baked potatoes, bacon, cheddar cheese and red onions. It was a like a baked potato pizza! The kids loved the mac & cheese in a bread bowl.
Fat Cat found a new game there — chasing mice. If this campground had a mice problem before we got there, they don’t anymore!
Since this RV park is also a golf course, Chris took the kids to play one day.
We really enjoyed our time there and definitely want to go back to Idaho again someday and explore more of the state. It was a great place to rest up before heading to Grand Tetons and Yellowstone.
