Road Trip Day 17: Drive to Twin Falls, ID

When we woke up early on our last day in Portland we were both incredibly sad. We slowly packed our car, checked out of our exceptional hotel room, and met up with my brother for one last meal together.

Our original plan was to go to Fuller’s but after parking we realized they were closed on Sundays and frantically began searching for a new breakfast place. Thanks to Urbanspoon Brad discovered a highly rated place called Mother’s. A quick drive and very short wait later we feasted on a delectable breakfast.

It was very hard to say goodbye to my brother, his girlfriend, and Portland but we did and hit the road for our first VERY long day back home around 9am. It was a gorgeous drive through the Cascade Locks by the Dalles and Multnomah Falls.

One of the many interesting things we saw on our drive was a sign, which we sadly passed too quickly to get a picture of, informing us that we were at the 45th Parallel: halfway between the Equator and the North Pole.

We pulled into our Jerome/Twin Falls KOA campsite around 7pm. We were happy to be in a place we remembered from numerous trips out West in my parent’s fifth wheel. A must-see attraction in Twin Falls, Idaho is Shoshone Falls. It wasn’t flowing at full capacity like we have seen before but it is still breathtakingly beautiful.

We walked around a bit and then had a quick and easy dinner at Chili’s.
