8 Hours in Idaho: A Short Idaho Roadtrip

Bear Lake didn’t really work out…so…why not go to Idaho…?

Yeah, that’s kinda what we did…actually, that is what we did! Mercedes and I wanted to go to Bear Lake for the day, which spans the border of northeastern Utah and southeastern Idaho. We drove through the canyon to reach the lake and upon reaching the top, where you could normally see the lake…well…it was covered in a huge cloud layer!

For comparison, these photos were taken in almost the exact same spot. Yeah, you should probably see the lake from where we were standing but no…the entire lake was covered in such a thick fog! It was actually really beautiful to see and quite spectacular! I was hoping to see the lake in all its unfrozen glory, but this was a pretty cool site to see. Of course, we kinda needed something to do with out day…we had planned to recreate our Bear Lake day trip from August, so maybe the fog would lift and it would be good…

We tried to take some photos using my tripod to remember the day by and…well…here’s what we got…

So, after driving around the lake for a bit and seeing if the weather would clear up, getting my little Honda Civic stuck in the snow and being graciously helped out by an older couple in a large pickup truck (thank you, I think Mercedes and I would still be in Bear Lake if it wasn’t for them), we decided we didn’t want to go home, but instead see if we could find some adventure. So, we decided to drive into Idaho, to Lava Hot Springs…for literally…no reason whatsoever.
