Overall Experience: smile

We had a wonderful time visiting our friends, Jim & Jeanette, in Pocatello, ID. After arriving, we got to see a little bit of the town and visited the local brewpub for dinner. Sunday, we hiked the East Fork of the Mink Creek Trail near Scout Mountain and followed with dinner that evening. Lots of good conversations, with a few brewskies over dinner, ended our visit. It was a good visit indeed!
