The Little RV Finds Sweet Seclusion in Bear Lake State Park, Idaho

Our move on Sunday brought us to Idaho.  We are in the far southeast corner of Idaho at Bear Lake State Park.  

 


The lake is a peculiar shade of turquoise like the ocean in the Caribbean.  They call it the "Caribbean of the Rockies".  
Photo snagged from the interwebs.
Apparently there are deposits of limestone suspended in the water and the reflection of the sun off those deposits is what causes the turquoise color.  It's gorgeous no matter what causes it.  


We are in a pull-through site with electricity.  There is a water faucet at our site and nobody is here so we are hooked into it.

We spent our first evening watching the sunset over the lake.  It was awe inspiring to say the least.  We set up our chairs to overlook the lake and took dozens of photos as the sun went down. Here are just a few.  



 

Onward!

    1. It is beautiful and it looks so different at different times of the day. We call it a "do over". We will be going there again one day.
