Last week, on our weekly trip out with my mother, we drove by the river to see the falls. As you can see, they were all frozen-over. There were places where you could see the water, but mostly, the falls were frozen-over!
Across the river, you can see the beautiful, LDS Temple. It looks so pretty by the falls. The picture below, is a picture I took a few years ago, you can actually see the falls in this picture!
This is a picture of a little cabin that sits on an island in the Snake River. They call it, Keefer's Island. Keefere's Island is a 1.7 square-mile stretch of land in the Snake River, just a short distance north of the falls. The small cabin on the island was actually inhabited by Fred Keefer from 1938-1959. The island was deeded to the city in the early 1900's. People used to travel long distances each 4th of July to view spectacular fireworks that were launched from the island.
This is a picture of Fred Keefer, he was in interesting character and had a really interesting life! He even served as sheriff for a short time!
After our ride, we took mom back home, as we went in, we were greeted by, Tillie, the resident house dog, and she just refused to hold still, so the photo is a little fuzzy. I'm not sure what breed she is, but she is adorable. She is a rescue dog, and we all know that they can make the best pets. My mother lives in a memory care unit, and Tillie loves all of them so much. You can often find her sleeping on my mothers floor, by her bed.
I'll leave you with some beautiful pictures of Idaho, a place I truly love!
