This photo was taken in a house that I had previously photographed. I spent time looking at the original images and planed strategies to make the image better. Since the location is about a 15 minute drive from home, I could pick the light and circumstances that I thought would make it better. I think these images work much better than the previous ones.

I Drove up to Kilgore Sunday afternoon to explore some abandoned houses. I was northwest of the store near the timber line when my truck died. I hiked a mile to the main road, a gravel road that goes to the corner where the Kilgore Store is located and managed to wave down a hunter heading into the hills. He gave me a jump and all was well. He drove off and I happily drove back to the main road. After turning left onto the road, the engine stopped again. I was a about 2 miles from the store and began walking. when I arrived at the store, I was encouraged to find it still open. I found a good natured cowboy unwinding at the close of the day. He towed me to the store and I took a few photos of him and the store owner. AAA saved the day! The tow truck came from Ririe and I was home by 9:30.

Dropped Nancy and the kids off at a beach and went exploring. Came back way too late! Found this scene and spent a few hours photographing it with digital and a medium format film camera my friend Darren Clark let me borrow. Will be interesting to compare the results when I get the negatives developed.
Nancy wanted to build fires and make hotdogs and smores on the beach. These fires are larger bon fires built by local high school kids. The light on the left came from a group of people using flashlights to find their way back to the parking lot. They were shining the lights on the ground in front of them.

The above photo shows the eroded dam
looking up river from the dam
on the edge of the canyon
The last post featured the Teton Dam spillway in Fremont County. This post shows views of the actual dam and structures that were once underwater. All but one of these images were taken from the bottom of the canyon. You can see both up and down river shots. The failed dam structure is shown looking down river. The up river photo shows the once submerged canyon.

The ruins of the Teton Dam spillway in 2011
The breach and collapse of the the Teton Dam on June 5, 1976 caused tremendous environmental, economic, and social damage. The dam site is located in Madison and Fremont counties. You can visit the site by traveling on highway 33 towards Driggs, Idaho. Turn left on Teton Dam Road, 12000 East. The turn off is marked by an Idaho historical marker. The spillway is located on the north side of the river in Fremont County.

Want the authentic takes of Mexico without traveling a thousand miles? Visit Tacos Izcalli on Main Street in Rexburg. This "Taco Wagon" is a gem for Madison County. The tacos are my favorite. For $1.50 you get wonderfully seasoned meat of your choice, two warm corn tortillas, onions, cilantro, salsa, fresh lime, and a hint of pineapple chunks! An incredible taste experience. Pictured above are the pork tacos.
Order 2 tacos for a medium appetite or 3 if you need to satisfy a larger craving. Also, you may want to sample the variety of Mexican entrees.
The service is congenial and friendly. Julio, owner and head chef, prepares your order while you wait. Know the wait is well worth your time. Visit Tacos Izcalli and enjoy a meal that is only availble in Texas and further south. This is one Restaurant we are lucky to have in Madison County. Let's keep Julio busy making tacos and other Mexican favorites for many years to come!
Tacos Izcalli is located on Main Street in Rexburg next to JBs. Park on the street or pull in next to the wagon.
