Little Bear's Adventure's
Eye of the Potato
I've climbed in corn fields and I've climbed on tomato vines.
I've posed with peppers and watermelon. Today I posed in the eye of a potato.
First I posed with a potato that wasn't real. It was a giant potato, at the Idaho Potato Museum.
Beth found a tiny dent and tucked me in, for a photo. She said it was a potato eye. Never heard of such a thing!
After the big photo shoot, we headed into the little cafe, inside the museum.
Of course Beth bought a baked potato.
It didn't look very good. The bacon looked fake and the slippery blob of sour cream did not look appetizing.
Beth took the potato in the car and we drove to a rest stop.
She ate the potato all by herself. I said, "No thanks! It's all yours!"
Climbing the Lava
Not far from the table, we found some walkways. We wandered and found some hard lava formations. The rock was once hot lava, that became solid a few thousand years ago! The rocks had lots of holes. They look more like eyes than those potato eyes.
I climbed around on the rock, thinking about lava and potatoes. I guess all the lava has made the soil just right for potato growing!
I have determined that I prefer rock climbing, to potato climbing.
On the Tracks
Ms. Donkey and I spent 3 nights in Idaho on our road trip. We posed on some railroad tracks on our last day.
No worries! That train could not get to us.
Ms. Donkey and I hiked down the hill a bit, for a view of the old depot.
I Love Trains
I love the idea of trains and train stations! Maybe my next trip with Ms. Donkey will be a train trip. Cars are boring.
Boise, Idaho with Ms. Donkey
Ms. Donkey and I have been jumping from state to state on our road trip. But we stayed put in Boise for 3 nights.
We visited a pond on the top of a hill.
Beth posed us on a lilypad.
She laid on a rock and reached down to place us.
I'm not sure it was a good idea, but she promised she'd jump in if we fell.
In Idaho, with Ms. Donkey
This was my first time in Idaho and I got to enjoy it with my friend.
We paused at the top of a hill and posed on a rock.
From our rock, (next to the bench) we had a good view of the capital city. The sky was hazy because of recent fires... but the grass was green. I like Idaho.
