MOTEL hopping: Idaho Falls, Idaho

I stayed in this motel, Falls View Motel in Idaho Falls, Idaho, in the mid-60s on a family trip to Yellowstone. What I remember was the sound of the falls. That's the only memory that has stuck with me.

Sad to say, like so many old motels, it doesn't exist anymore. At least a strip mall wasn't put up in its place. Instead there's another motel, the Best Western Driftwood Inn.

You can see the falls on the right, what looks like a white slash.

Funny, I don't think of driftwood when I think of Idaho. I automatically think of wood along the Pacific coast. Wood from far off shores. But hey, wood floating along the Snake River is driftwood, just maybe not as exotic.
