IDMTWY 2008 - Day 5

Miles Driven 307
Route Ammon, ID ->  Rexburg, ID  -> US-20 w/detour to Mesa Falls -> ID/MT 87 -> US-287 -> MT-359 -> MT-69 -> I-15 -> Helena (map)

This was a long day, so we left early.  I have not been to Rexburg since shortly after I graduated in 1996.  It has changed a lot with quite a few new campus buildings and the beautiful Rexburg Temple.  It would have been almost an hour faster to take I-15 all the way to Helena, but I always take the scenic route if it doesn’t cost to much in time.  We also got to see the Upper and Lower Mesa Falls.  They were quite impressive being full of spring runoff.  We ate lunch another hour up the road at Harriman State Park.  It is an old ranch with great views of the Snake River valley. 

After lunch, everyone else went to sleep while I drove the rest of the way to Helena.  Carry wasn’t home yet, but we enjoyed the children and Julianne.
