Wow, did I get to see some Idaho I had never known was even there. What an amazing evening at the Lish Ranch, 20 miles up canyon roads from Pocatello, Idaho and into dry farming high country . Met people who still have the family homestead their grandfather or great grandfather started in late 1800’s. Good friends of my nephew Karson who worked for Shawn with the guys in the photos. Karole and Ken have become friends too and Ken has worked with Sadie laying tile and working out rooms in the basement for the girls. What an incredible family and I just wish I had taken a photo of beautiful wife and mother, Sadie.
We have been told any time we want to take the motor home out there and park and hook up-do it. Yeah!
You ought to double click on some of the scenes so they blow up and you can feel the country.
Living clear out of Pocatello and American Falls, mountains all around and rolling farms.
Karson’s construction boss, much loved by his young builders makes everything using great old pieces.

Can’t beat Idaho clouds
Can’t you just the the laundry blowing dry!
Sadie said she wanted to keep the old house close to original.
Brother in law Ken with Russ enjoying the hospitality of the hosts.
Fell in love with Shawn and Sadie’s daughters and their young friend-all have only known country living.
Makayla helped prepare the meal and is middle school girl with pop!
Shawn’s special bar b que and I did eat meat!
My wonderful nephew Karson Honas who now has a great but difficult job that uses all his education, and smarts.
Potatoes, first bacon, and keep the grease, slice the red potatoes and pour 7 Up over and cook up over a fire. Go-o-d but fattening.
My favorite cowgirl with spurs got bucked off their horse that she and her mom were riding. Dad took him out for a workout and put mom and daughter back on. A Miss Rodeo America in the making.
Vehicles parked for the evening. Unless they were neighbors just a mile away they all stayed over except us cause Russ was designated driver.
A real country kitchen of early 1900’s
Gateway to heaven in the old west!
Just some photos of our walk on the beach with Shadow. Yes, she still is with us. Her growth on her side is huge. But she does not seem to be in pain. She also is 13 and can only walk so far, but that works for Russ and I just walk a bit further on.
We had acorns dropping on the roof of the RV all 4 nites here and Shadow thinks someone is shooting at her. We had to keep her drugged-
Evenings with our storm buddies was always enjoyable.
