|Old Town Main Street in Twin Falls|
One of my first visits to Twin was many years ago when I ended up driving back to Colorado alone after visiting Danny and Beth in Washington state with Dad and he had to fly back to Florida to take care of an emergency there. Twin Falls is not right on I-84 so you have to drive into town about 5 miles. I stayed overnight there and only got to view the big canyon formed by the Snake river and not the falls. Bob and I drove sort of by there a few times while we lived in Owyhee and took drives on weekends, but never really explored it.

One of the best memories I have of Twin Falls is one Fourth of July about 7 years ago.

Bob and I drove to Twin Falls with Thomas and Erin (who had been visiting us in June). Marianne, Brendin and Darcy drove from Washington. JJ and Ozzie came from Elko and Micah, Kim and Alyssa (who was a baby) came from San Diego. We all met up in Twin to celebrate and exchange kids for summer visits.

A friend of mine took some really cool pictures of the falls this spring when they were really roaring. Here is the link to them. Notice the difference!!!!
We drove around the campus of Southern Idaho Community College trying to find a good place to watch the fireworks but decided to just sit out in front of the motel on the sidewalk along Blue Lakes Boulevard, the main drag. We got some fried chicken and macaroni salad from Fred Meyers and had a big picnic (including a bunch of bulk candy) and watched the traffic and pedestrians go by until dark!

|This restaurant has been in business since 1917. It is open 24 hours a day every day except Sunday when it closes, I think, at 9 PM until 5 AM Monday morning.|
