Day 22: June 25, 2010
Holbrook to Burley, Idaho
This was one long push from country to city. The Meadow Brook cutoff from Holbrook to Juniper at I-84 was a terrific route west, dirt, rolling hills through open range. Then about 25 miles of mixed dirt and loose gravel frontage road that just about did me in. The gas station/convenience store at the Malta exit on the Interstate was such a let down at 35 miles that I had to laugh – I didn’t need gas and it didn’t have much by way of conveniences, but it had a baby rattler exhibition that earned a chuckle. Then a windy dull push to Malta (Where Robert and Vicky picked up my lunch tab. Thanks you two!) Then 33 miles racing a thunder storm into Burley. I just had lunch at Hansen and plan on pushing on to Shoshone, so this is just to keep me from falling behind. The drivers in Cassia County, Idaho, earn the coveted No. 1 most thoughtful drivers award. It’s so nice to be on fast, narrow highways where almost everyone gives wide berth, slows down, and waves. Camped at Riverview RV park for its showers. $15.
