Glidden Tour -- Twin Falls, Idaho

Recommended Posts

There were about a half-dozen cars from Texas on the recent Glidden Tour in Twin Falls, Idaho, and we had a great time. The scenery was unbelievable, and included deserts, mountains, river valleys, the Snake River gorge, Shoshone Falls, City of Rocks, Craters of the Moon, Mt. Harrison, and some of the richest agricultural land found anywhere (thanks to irrigation water from the Snake). Some of the roads we drove had little traffic on them, and the weather was perfect -- clear with temperatures in the 70s. There were small, rustic towns with delightful home-spun cafes, contrasted with the incredible Sun Valley Lodge with its 1930s-vintage style and luxury. I'll post a few pictures in a week or two.

After the Tow-Vehicle went down near Rawlins, Wyoming, we DROVE the 1941 Cadillac about 500 miles to Twin Falls, another almost 1,000 miles on the tour, and then almost 500 more miles back to retrieve the Excursion Diesel. 

 

James is right with regard to the fantastic scenery, and we got to enjoy it "Top-Down" in the yellow '41.

 

Despite all the miles, I would do it all over again!
