American Falls, Idaho
We're on our way back to California after coming down the far western side of Montana and decided to hit the south/east side of Idaho too. Some of which we've repeated from earlier trips. We always try to find some different spots so when we came upon Massacre Rocks State Parks we decided to stop there for a few days.
Site #9, W/E 50amp, $34. A bit pricey for a state park but with temps in the mid 90s, A/C is nice!
This site has is a very long back in. Not as narrow as it looks.
They have some nice cabins with great views too.
View of the Snake River from the cabin.
We walked around a bit and checked out Devils Garden. Then we purchased Non-Resident fishing licenses for $29. So nice to be able to get these online nowadays.
We caught several Large and Smallmouth Bass mostly on Brushhogs.
Some had the strangest coloring though. Very gray in color with gray bellies.
See the gray bellies instead of white?
After dinner we took a drive down to see Register Rock.
Marina in American Falls.
Hurley loved swimming here in the marina area. I wish we could've come back to fish this area.
The next morning we went out to fish the other side of the river and had a slow start but then it picked up and we caught (and released) so many bass we lost count. The cows were out grazing this side of the river and didn't care that we were there drifting by.
More of those gray bass.
Mimosa's for Diane and I.
Great Carne Asada Nachos.
Interesting house in town and a very patriotic painted chopper.
Beautiful sunset. We really enjoyed this area and are excited for our final stop in Idaho next.
