Dinner Day Two — Shoshone Falls and Boise We depart Utah this morning en route to Idaho. We make a stop at spectacular Shoshone Falls, known as the “Niagara of the West.” With a 212 foot drop and a width of 900 feet, it is one of the largest natural waterfalls in the country. Later, we arrive in Boise, where our hotel and included dinner await.

Special protective eye-wear and delicious hot lunch will be provided for this one-in-a-lifetime event. Breakfast and lunch Day Four — Museum of Idaho and Cody Nite Rodeo This morning we stop at Hell’s Half Acre Lava Trail System. The contorted landscapes were created from multiple Hawaiian-type lava flows, the result of intense volcanic activity more than 2,000 years ago.

Since first opening its doors in 1927 as a log cabin in downtown Cody, the museum has grown to include the Cody Firearms Museum, Plains Indian Museum and the Whitney Western Art Museum. Later, we cross the border into Montana for dinner and a two-night stay.
