If you are familiar with the Boise area and you know where Hammett, Idaho and Cold Springs Winery is, then you will know that this trip was one large circle. About 290 miles. But fun and a good day. The photo to the left is of the IB Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls at the memorial to IB Perrine. He was Robin’s G-Grandfather who laid out the Twin Falls tract. He also opened the irrigation system in the area with the help of others. He was quite the innovator.
The Snake River canyon, just a little east of this point, is where they will attempt to jump over the canyon via a jet motorcycle. Remember Evil Knievel? He tried it too. Enjoy these photos of the day trip and Left-Click any of them to see enlarged. Cheers!
One must make a stop every once in a while to stretch ones legs and walk Buddy. We can pick some ‘weird” places.
And there is always fresh made ice cream on the trail. This was in Buhl.
We were hoping that the museum in Filer would be open, they said it would be open on December 1. It was not.
At the IB Perrine Memorial in Twin Falls. Here Robin is pictured with his statue.

IB Perrine owned the land in the canyon where the golf course is now. The family cemetery is also located there and the “foot print” of the original house. One building, Brook Lodge, still stands and I believe is still being used.
And then finally, the Cold Springs Winery in Hammett, Idaho where Jamie Martin, Robin’s cousin, is the winemaker.
