For the Fourth of July, Nat and I met my parents for camping at Massacre Rocks State Park in southeast Idaho. It’s almost exactly halfway between Portland and my parents’ new home in Lafayette, CO, and they had some furniture they’d been meaning to get to us, so we decided to take advantage of a long weekend and also have some fun. It was such a good trip. The first two nights we camped at sites back-to-back, and the last night we all shared a cabin. I’d learned about the Idaho Museum of Natural History from a flyer in a Pocatello hotel last summer, so I made sure we had a chance to see that. It’s a little museum, but their current exhibit “Exposed: Never Before Seen Wonders” is really neat; we got to see shrunken heads and these amazing black bear skulls covered in velvet, an early “taxidermy” method! We hung out for a while and had lunch in Pocatello and then headed back to the campsite–more pictures soon.
