The suite was so comfortable that we decided to stay until midday!
Despite the Falls being the biggest tourist attraction in Twin Falls (the drop is actually more than Niagara at about 480') we couldn't find it - no signs anywhere. We accidentally happened upon the Visitor Center after we had crossed the Perrine Bridge (495' above the Snake River Gorge) a couple of times looking for the Falls. The view of the Snake River Gorge from the Center was spectacular. We never did find the Falls
The drive from Twin Falls to Boise was nasty - high desert country with fierce cross-winds.
We arrived in Boise about 3:30pm and immediately wanted to leave as their freeway system has destroyed the outskirts of the city (as in a lot of other cities we'd seen). However at a full hotel near the freeway, we were given directions to the "downtown" area". We quickly found the area in booking.com, booked a room at the Holiday Inn Express and checked in 5 minutes later
It was an excellent hotel with an outdoor pool that I used for a couple of hours while Jeni explored the lake and Mexican restaurant nearby (she wanted to do that rather than swim!)
In the evening we strolled 100 meters to the Mexican place and had an OK meal but ate too much of course, so a long postprandial walk around the lake was undertaken
By the way, the reason we are driving a seemingly round-about route is that there are just about no roads traversing the Nevada and Oregon deserts to bring us near Crater Lake
