Calamity Campground - Palisades Dam Idaho Aug 25-Sep 1, 2013

Calamity Campground is located at the top of the Palisades Dam, on the Snake River.  It's located in Eastern Idaho, between Idaho Falls and Jackson Hole, Wyoming at about 5,900 ft elevation.  The temps have been in the mid 70s every day with a little bit of rain most every day.  Most days, we have been the only campers at the campground...besides the host.  We're surrounded by lush foliage, an occasional deer, some squirrels and birds.  We've taken a few side trips to Jackson Hole, Idaho Falls, and a few small towns in between.  This area is really nice, but I hear the winters are very, very, very cold.  Our next stop will be in Victor, Idaho.

Idaho Falls






No, they're not real...but it's a great looking sculpture with waterfall!


Yeah, it's real...I believe it's an Osprey.

Very cool shots! Looks like a beautiful place. Isn't it nice to have some variety in the weather!? Looks like an Osprey to me too! Occasionally, we'll see a bald eagle fly over our house...usually with crows chasing him. Pretty amazing whenever you see birds like that isn't it?

Great shots. We have nests like those in the power lines in Maine. It's the eagles here. The first time I saw one I described it as the size of a child's wading pool. I guess that sums it up. Safe travels!
