is one of the many rivers we found in Idaho. I was amazed at the amount of water in Idaho. Being a Californian I always assumed that since we were near the beach, we had lots of water. The occasional man mades lakes seem to be more of a humidity nuisance than anything. The beach always ruled for us.

Then we went to Idaho on a portion of our vacation. Wow. I could not believe it. Everywhere we went there were lakes and rivers. The scenery was beautiful.

After the water goes over the falls this is where it goes from there:
some kids have all the fun

In my best John Candy voice I say " Beautiful scenery, beautiful!"
