We left South Dakota on Wednesday, August 31; we got everything we needed to get done. We had two major things to get done in our 2 weeks, the first was to get Ernie's eyes fixed YAG Capsulotomy on both eyes and set up our domicile. We would definitely recommend Black Hills Regional Eye Institute if you are in Rapid City and need laser surgery.
Our drive to Mountain Home, Idaho was uneventful, and we stayed in a couple of different RV parks in Wyoming. We arrived in Mountain Home about 2:30 pm and our first activity was to go to Boise to see the hot air balloons glow at night at the Spirit of Boise event. We all got some yummy food at the food trucks and hung out until the balloons were ready to glow.
Our next stop was Black Magic Canyon, the rock formations are really interesting!
Our last stop was Idaho's Mammoth Cave. There was no guide to take us in, they give you a lantern and you head down by yourself. It is a pretty cool cave. This cave keeps a consistent 41 degrees. The cave has a special growth on the walls that give it the appearance of pure silver. Mineral deposits with many silver, gold, orange and deep reds add beauty to the vast cavern.
