Chris and I have been back from our trip out west for a couple of weeks now and I have really not had time to sit down and sort through pictures and write posts. If truth be known I just got all the laundry done and put away today. I guess I just have had a few other things going on or something. The truth is it is going to be pretty busy from here on out to the end of the year.
But it is a good kind of busy. The kind of busy that I love. Time with family and friends. Why even today I am taking a quick road trip to be with my BFF Ann on a bit of an adventure. I am sure it will show up on the blog later.
On the last full day we spent in Idaho Chris spent the day fishing and I was happily ensconced in a book reading marathon at our bed and breakfast outside of Victor, Idaho. Now I did venture into the cute little town of Victor to do a tiny bit of sightseeing but it certainly did not take all day as the population of Victor comes in at just under 2000. Victor is the largest city in Teton County. While I would not really call it a city I guess it qualifies since it is the largest in the county.
I did a bit of looking, found a couple of gifts and postcards to send and opted to not park on the main streets where you have to back into the diagonal parking places. Yes. Back. Chris says it is for all the pick up trucks but since I was not driving my trusty Outback I opted to park normally on a side street. Some may call me chicken. They would be correct.
When I got back to the bed and breakfast I decided that it was such a beautiful day I just needed to take a walk so I set out to just walk down the road and back. Simple enough. A couple of miles would do this old body good and the fall air was lovely.
Take a stroll with me.
Did I mention my 2 mile walk turned into a 3 and 1/2 mile walk? The road turned and on the way back I did not. I kept looking for the horses I had passed on the way down the road and they just were not there. Fortunately I had cell coverage and my GPS got me back. I never said I was paying attention, did I?

I love those kind of walks and it was very scenic. I would be the one to take a wrong turn as well. The pictures are fabulous. Thanks for taking me with you.
You are very welcome. I will take you on a walk with me anytime! Just make sure one of us has GPS. 🙂
I love little towns. And I love that first image…sort of almost black and white with a pop of gold!
That one turned out really neat, didn’t it? You just never know when you take pictures how they are going to turn out. Thanks!
Your walk was a feast for the eyes.
Yay! Glad you liked it.
Once again I feel as though I have taken a walk with you. You know your walking helped try again and finally succeeded on overcoming my own anxiety and start walking outside again. For that I am so very grateful. Blessings.
I am so glad you were able to go walk outside again! I think it is such a beautiful time of year practically everywhere, isn’t it?
What a gorgeous walk. Thanks for taking us along. I’m glad you found your way safely back. I would likely be the same way. We get distracted, don’t we?
I have no sense of direction which is why I don’t usually hike alone in the woods. But I figured on the road I could figure it out. I was wrong. 🙂
What a pretty hike! I can see why ya’ got distracted. Glad ya’ got back! Thanks for sharing.
I never said I had a good sense of direction. 🙂
I can see how the horse would have been a distraction!
I think that is why I got all turned around. Or at least that is my story and I am sticking to it.
Idaho is certainly beautiful. Enjoyed the stroll.
Thanks, Ozzie. It really is gorgeous.
