Alpine Wyoming Car Show (and/or Bear Lake Raspberry Shake) Drive

August 17, 18, 19, 2019 By: Valerie Francis

Last chance to join us! Update on an alternative way and date home for those going on, or interested in joining this drive:


Rather than driving straight over to Idaho Falls after the car show, spending the night and driving home the next day, at least one couple (Lou & Carol Lynn V.) has set up the following:


Staying in St. Anthony on Saturday night the 17th at the Henrys Fork Inn (208-624-3711).  Then on Sunday morning will be heading up to Mesa Falls for a visit. After the falls going up to Island Park and possibly over to Dubois. Then working our way back to Rexburg, staying Sunday night at the Super 8 in Rexburg (208-881-9772). Maybe even checking out the Potato Museum in Blackfoot ID when driving home Monday.

Everyone is welcome to join this extended day/route or to find your way home on Sunday.  The alternate route information has been added below.
