1. Craters Of The Moon
2. Apline to Palisades
This just happened to be the route I took, no particular reason. However, the drive from Alpine to Palisades was gorgeous past a huge lake and mountains. Looked like it would be a nice recreation, camping, or hangout area. Pretty remote, although off a major highway, but I didn’t see any people around the lake. If you’re planning a route through Idaho, I would recommend driving through this way. Along the route is Idaho Falls and Red Rock Pass are two noteworthy stops if you need a break. There’s a place called Lava Springs I didn’t visit, but has hot springs. Just outside Craters of the Moon on the way down to Utah.
- Cracked Windshield. Apparently in Idaho due to the wind, number of trucks, or maybe dumb luck, I managed to have my windshield cracked twice while on the road in Idaho at two different places. I actually keep a windshield repair kit from Walmart in the car, as this happened a couple years ago on a road trip. So I fixed the first crack, drove about 30 minutes and it happened again! My advice is to pay attention if you start hearing rocks crackling up against your windshield and back off of the car in front of you. This goes especially for large trailers, trucks hauling stuff, or pickup trucks.
