Ready to leave the freeway with its trucks, speeders, and tailgaters? Drove US30 from Bliss east. Although takes longer to get to Twin Falls, it is a much calmer and peaceful drive. Good place to picnic or even camp a night.

This was a beautiful byway and a good escape from the interstate. I think Idaho could do a better job of informing the traveler of all the places to see. We picked up a map at a local Tourist info spot but the person in...More
