Day 6, 88.3 miles, left Oregan into Idaho!

Another hot day in the saddle,  we had around 12 miles this morning before we enter into Idaho,  it feft great to have one state behind us.  The Snake river seperated Oregan and Idaho,  there was a couple from Wilderness, South Africa  they were traveling from Sarasota FL  to Yellowstone!  Idaho has wonderful road ,  Rode into Nyssa home of the thundering egg,  can you guess what it is?  We hit our first road construction around 7 miles,  rode thur hops fields, lot of onions fields, and corn.  Givens, Hot Springs, it was discovered in 1879, the water from the spring is 140 degree's.  Interested town of Murphy Idaho.  Pop. 50 !  Rode over the Owhee Mountain range.   Spent the night in the Bruneau Dunes State Park.  Large sand dunes,
