By then it was lunchtime. Why not stop by an old favorite? Zips makes the best chicken strips and fries, and of course, nothing compares to their tartar sauce!!! Yum! Wish I could go again.
After that, things were pretty quiet for a few hours as we drove through the mountain passes in Idaho and Montana, especially because our cell phones didn't have any service for the next two days. Bummer.
But our spirits were boosted when we saw a big sign, by the side of the freeway, advertising Huckleberry Shakes. Hmmm. Now would be a good time to stop!! Afterall, everyone has to go potty, right? And of course, the gas tank is only 3/4 of the way full. We really should top it off. Oh, since we are stopped already, why not get a few huckleberry shakes? Good idea, right?
Then we traveled back into Idaho again, with a stopover for the night at my sister Courtney's house. It was a beautiful evening spent sitting out on the porch, overlooking the wheat fields, and talking with family. Thanks for having us, Corks!
The next day was the last day of driving, but unfortunately, it was the longest and most boring part of the drive. Heath hates driving through Wyoming, hence the "thumbs down" in the picture. No offense against Wyoming, but it's a long, straight, and boring drive.
But then we finally made it back to Colorado!! It really was a great trip, and we are so blessed to have had it be free of car problems and catastrophes.
