Today's agenda: meet a good friend for breakfast in The Dalles, Oregon, then drive to Boise and do the 12K Capital - Microbrewery walk. It was time to leave the Columbia River Gorge in the rear-view mirror.
In The Dalles, we met Daily at Cousins Restaurant, a place with good ole, down-home cooking. Soon after we were seated, samples of their cinnamon rolls were brought to our table. We dug in and enjoyed their great rolls.

Upon arriving in Boise, Idaho, we checked into our motel room, then headed to the downtown Boise YMCA to start our 12K Capital walk. The weather was warm.

About three-fourths of the way through our walk, we came upon a fast food drive in. Susan bought us both ice cream treats. Yummy! Thank you, Susan M. We noticed in Idaho 'tater tots are called "gems." You learn something new every day.
After the ice cream, we headed back to our start point. Along the way we walked on 13th Street (historic Hyde Park). Some of the eateries reminded us of San Antonio.

A great walk. We hopped in the car for the short drive back to our motel. We had a good night's sleep.
Tomorrow, Salt Lake City.
