Twin Falls

The weekend after the 24th, parts of my fam headed up to Twin Falls to see the Temple Open House.

In the morning we went to the Shoshone Ice Caves. It was a slightly ghetto tourist trap, but it was still cool. We learned all about lava tubes and the crazy volcanic history of Idaho! In the picture below is a collapsed lava tube.

Here are some freaky friends we met on our walk out to the cave.

One of the lava tubes is an ice cave! It was insane to walk from 100 degree weather into 26 degree chill! Some of the ice under our feet was like 18 feet thick!

The 'sculptures' outside were quite phenomenal... :)
You can do anything in Idaho! Even ride dinos!
Then we headed to the Open House. It's so cool to be able to go inside a temple and see it all. It was so beautiful.
We also happened to be there the same weekend as the Blue Angels. The pilots even stayed in our same hotel! Thousands of people paid $20 a person to see them, but we watched them for free from the temple! They are dang cool and I think I would have even paid to see them.
We spent a little bit of time at some of the parks there afterwards before heading home. I thought this bridge was really beautiful!
And here is Shoshone Falls. Gorgeous!

So that was totally the choppiest post ever known to mankind but my brain is wedding-fried and I can't do anything but insert pictures and push post!
