Lake Mead, NevadaMinus 24ºC is cold enough (it does sound better in centigrade) and if Lindsay ever ever has thoughts about coming here in winter again, I'm going to bash him about the ears, like Bruce told me to.
The quickest way south would be through Yellowstone park itself but the roads are closed for winter as they are covered in snow. So we need to head north to Livingstone, then west to Billings. Tom Tom wanted to take us down the interstate but that would add about two hours to our travel time, so we told it to take us to West Yellowstone so that it would send us down the 191. This road in winter would have to be the most picturesque we have encountered on all our travels. It runs along a river and actually comes back into the National Park. Pine trees laden with snow, rocks in the river sprinkled with snow, the sun is shining, and I have to take my jumper off I'm so warm! - in the car of course. It is beautiful. The first night we stop at Sheffield RV park in Rexburg ID. Not impressed at all. If we didn't have our PA membership it would have been full summer price plus extra for power ($45 + tax). The bathrooms are closed which is annoying as we can't hook up with water as the lines would freeze. The place overall is just not nice and we wouldn't stay here again. The next night we made it to Wagon West RV park in Fillmore UT.
