Our next stop was the town of Driggs, Idaho and The Royal Wolf, a self styled western pub. I’d chosen to visit The Royal Wolf on Simbo’s recommendation because they feature Huckleberry Trout on their menu, a fillet of Rainbow Trout topped with a huckleberry-ginger chutney. Unfortunately I didn’t read the fine print to see that it’s a dinner only option. Despite this, our lunch was simple and satisfying.
As we headed west to The Henry’s Fork of the Snake River and Mesa Falls, I had to ask Simbo to stop and check out a Pillsbury grain silo standing in the bright sunlight on the side of the road, clean, organized and well maintained.
The farm fields that surrounded the silo were vast and lush. Southeastern Idaho is an example of how some hard working families are maintaining the American work ethic that have made this country great.
