After meeting up with our friend David in Portland, the real road trip could begin.
We spent two nights in Portland to get a feel of the city. The Powell house of books is worth a visit. Never seen so many books in one place before. Silje had a hard time deciding witch books to buy. There is also a great old Oyster bar in town that we had dinner in.
From Portland we headed east to Boise, Idaho where we slept one night on our way to the main destination Kemmerer, Wyoming.
Joe´s Crab Shack in Boise, Idaho.
Along the way there was some nice surprises like this old diner in Snowville where we stopped for lunch. Great food and nice waitresses.
The scenery along the way is beautiful, the road is interesting despite it being an interstate road.
The barking lot outside Wholefoods in Salt Lake City
Next stop from Boise, was Salt Lake City. One night in the Peery hotel was interesting. We got to see the city and even go to a organ concert in the Tabernacle in Temple square. From Salt Lake City it is only a couple of hours to Kemmerer Wyoming where we met our friend Adam, his wife Katie, their two friendly dogs and four cats. No need to say Silje were thrilled.
Silje and Affie, BFFs!
Sunday was an eventful day. First out was a float down the Hams Fork River in tubes. Slowly floating down stream with the tubes tied together around a floating cooling bag in the sun was a great way of spending a couple of hours.
Ready, set go!
Just floating around.
In the afternoon me and Silje went to the cute old movie theater in Kemmerer to see the Minions. The theater in it self was a treat. Looked like an old saloon from the outside.
The movie theater.
While the girls were at the movies, the guys were out shooting clay pigeons.
All these activities made us hungry, and Katie prepared a lovely meal in their home for us, before we headed for some fossil digging in Adams quarry. Ancient Lake Fossil Company. Another experience we will remember forever.
Is that a fossil rabbit?
Silje´s first fossil, a piece of fish.
We found several nice fish. Very exiting! One of the fossils you can see in the feature image.
Big thanks to Adam and Katie for giving us a awesome day in Kemmerer! We are happy we are going to stay for a couple of days more.
