The Bitterroot Range Route…This Spud’s for You
Discussions about Idaho will eventually turn to the …Potato. Baked, fried, mashed, scalloped, and the list goes on. If you are a big fan of this vegetable, there is no better place to visit than Blackfoot, ID – “The Potato Capital of the World”. Seated in Bingham County, it produces more potatoes than any county in the United States! You can learn much, much more about the potato at the Idaho Potato Museum in Blackfoot. The next time you are having a beer, burger, and fries at the 19th hole after a grueling day of golf, you can amaze your playing partners with your knowledge of the potato.
This trip took us through parts of Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Washington. The roads we traveled were I-84, I-15, and I-90. If you study a road map of these highways, they outline the perfect shape of a…wait for it…Russet Potato! Looking at that map you will also see, growing out of the middle of this route, the Bitterroot Mountain Range.
After visiting the Idaho Potato Museum in Blackfoot and The Museum of Clean in Pocatello, we didn’t have time for 18-hole rounds, but there was Always Time for 9!
You will discover more about these two museums and a little about golf as you travel The Bitterroot Range Route.
