After leaving Richfield, Utah I headed to Idaho to check out St. Anthony. Many of my desert friends want to visit St. Anthony because the dunes are arguably the tallest in the US at a height of over 500 feet. Also St. Anthony is neighbor to Yellow Stone Park and has a view of the Grand Teton mountains which made it the perfect destination.
The most popular spots to explore are Crapo Hill (Thunder Mountain), Deadhorse Bowl, Devil’s Dune, and Choke Cherry Hill. Choke Cherry (pictured) is probably the steepest hill I've climbed in my UTV. Note: I did not make it up with the 15" paddles, but I did make it up when I switched to the stock big horn tires (all terrain tires). They were not kidding about this being "Choke Cherry".. You really need some horsepower to make the last ten or so feet to crest the hill.
These white quartz sand dunes are also fun to hike, look for local wildlife, including deer, elk and moose, or relaxing by Egin Lake. Hour Happy with drinks, snacks, and watching the sunset was our favorite reason to hang out by the lake.
I have a great story about Trump and confederate flags all around me. Also why being eight miles from the nearest Walmart or highway was daunting the first night. The internet will ruin you.
Stay tuned for the next blog. I still have so much to post.
