Snowville, Utah, to Meridian, Idaho

We headed north and west again this morning on Interstate 84. I wasn't happy to see all the snow on the mountains in front of us, but fortunately the highway turned more to the west and I didn't have to look at them for too long.

Soon after we crossed into Idaho and came over Sweetzer Summit we came upon this accident scene and were guided into the left lane --

It was a bit scary to see this big eighteen wheeler turned over on its side. There are warning signs about wind gusts all along this stretch of freeway. I wonder if that's what happened to this trucker?

As we got further into Idaho, we saw more and more cattle. And lots of empty cattle trucks heading out. I think many of them have hauled cattle in to take advantage of all the spring grass in the pastures.

It wasn't that long a drive -- about 240 miles -- but, for some reason Forry was really tired when we got into the KOA at Meridian. He sat down in his chair and fell asleep for almost three hours. Needless to say, we had a very late dinner.
