We drove from Dillon, Montana south to Idaho going through Idaho Falls and continued to the North Blackfoot rest area. The area is known for its lava rocks as some 4,000 years ago the crust opened up and lava flowed out about 17 miles northwest of this area and eventually covered some 222 square miles. Southern Idaho is known for its lava fields such as Shoshone Indian Ice Cave and Craters of the Moon National Monument to mention just a few. The rest area has a few trails that take you up and around the lava rocks with picnic tables along the way. It is a great place to stop, get some fresh air and exercise, and learn about the geology of the area. We continued on to Pocatello and on to Utah!!
We headed into Salt Lake City to Sun Outdoors RV Resort. The resort is conveniently located to the west of the intersection of I-15 and I-215. It provides very convenient access to the SLC airport, downtown SLC, and/or many of the SLC attractions.
RV Park: Sun Outdoors RV Resort
Location: Salt Lake City, Utah
Site: B08 (pull thru)
Services: FHU (50 AMP)
Comments: An RV resort located right in the heart of Salt Lake City with easy access to downtown, the airport, and Interstate 15. It was easily accessible to get in and out of and is full of amenities. It seemed a bit tired but their customer service was excellent and there is lots to see and do in the area.
The RV Resort has rental cabins, rental bikes, a swimming pool, a dog park, a playground, giant chess/checkers, and direct access to the Jordan River Parkway. This parkway is over 60 miles and is the longest paved urban trail in the United States.
Our friends live up the hill from the RV resort so we enjoyed a lovely evening dining with them and enjoyed a beautiful sunset over the Great Salt Lake! Thanks for the great evening. Until we meet again!!
