A visit to Rexburg, ID and Mesa Falls with Friends

This morning we were up and on the road about 11am headed to Rexburg, ID. Mac & Chuck had to have blood work done and Kathy, Arlene, and myself were going to have Pedicures. Kathy needed a manicure and Arlene & I needed haircuts.

We arrived a little early so we started looking somewhere to have lunch. Mac and I like to go to the little out of the way places instead of the usually Fast Food places so I looked on Yelp to see what all was available. I found a little place called “Joe’s Filling Station” so off we went in search of this place.





and last photo of me with long hair for a very long time…lol


We seated ourselves and the waitress was right over and took our drink order. We checked out the menu and the daily specials and made our decisions…the girls were having Country Fried Steak with Mashed Potatoes, Salad, Green Beans, and Homemade Rolls. The guys decided on Liver & Onions, Mac with Fresh Cut Fries and Chuck having Mashed Potatoes. The food was very good and the atmosphere was very cool. The company & conversation was fabulous though…


After lunch the guys dropped us off at Reflections Hair & Nails so that we could all have our beauty procedures done. They were very busy and we had to wait awhile. I got my hair cut and it is a very short cut for me. Arlene just had a trim. They took Arlene & I back for our Pedicures and Kathy was getting her nails done. All in all I was pleased with my Pedicure and with my haircut, except it is a LOT shorter than I wanted in the back!!

The guys picked us up and we ran by the grocery store for a few items and then we were off headed back to Island Park. On the way we decided to take the scenic route that we had saw a few days ago that takes you to the Upper & Lower Mesa Falls. The drive was pretty and we stopped at an overlook to see The Tetons from a distance…..



Then we stopped at the Lower Falls…they were awesome!





Falls in the background…notice the “New” short haircut…


Myself, Arlene, and Kathy


Then on to the Upper Falls….







We arrived back at the RV park about 7:30 and everyone went to their own RV’s with the guys having plans to play golf in the morning and the girls just to hang out and maybe a trip to the Craft Fair down the road…

Stay Tuned….
