Now in the City Park in Soda Springs, Caribou County,  Idaho, this old gas powered Galloping Goose used to run from Soda Springs to the mining company town of Conda, and was often the only means of transportation. (All photos Nikon Coolpix L11) It ran for 14 years. *** ~Curtis in Idaho! {!-{>

Day 117: Up in Soda Springs!

In the City Park in Soda Springs, Caribou County,  Idaho, rests the Dinky Engine.  Used in the construction of a dam, it was trapped and left submerged.  Found years later, it was presented to the City of Soda Springs. (All photos Nikon Coolpix L11) The whole story. *** ~Curtis in Idaho! {!-{>

The Idaho Potato Museum and Gift Shop in Blackfoot…I didn’t get a chance to go in. A “big baker”…in need of a little touch up. The museum is in the old Blackfoot railroad depot.  That is the 2011 Ford Escape Hybrid I am driving for work now! *** ~Curtis in Idaho! {!-{>
