On Thursday, August 8, we packed up to leave and headed south down Hwy 55 through Cardiac Canyon and into Boise. As we traveled you could see the rubber rafts as many people come here to raft the Payette since it has some of the best variety of rough water anywhere. And I can say that we have rafted before but I don’t want to get in that churning, bouncing current. Check this website for some pictures and info: http://www.cascaderaft.com/
Once in Boise we left onto I-84 heading southeast. We decided to stop for the night at Glenn’s Ferry, ID and stay at Three Island State Park. Wow, is this an oasis in the desert! They irrigate this park using water from the Snake River and have nicely mowed green grass, huge sites, level parking and big cottonwood trees. So we booked an extra night! And the girls enjoyed sitting in the shade like princesses!
