I don’t know about you all, but I was formerly one of those individuals who believed Idaho didn’t have much going for it other than potatoes. (Not that potatoes should be understated, since they’re a staple to any part-Irish girl’s diet). However, over the course of my trip, I’ve seen some of the most beautiful landscapes! Here are a few quick pics of some flora, fauna, and merryweath–I mean–scenes you could witness on an excursion to Idaho. The terrain out here switches swiftly from grassy, rolling foothills to scrubby high desert mountains, and then again to densely-wooded coniferous forests complete with cascading rivers and craggy granite peaks. Take a look!
The first slideshow is of the rolling high-desert foothills:
The next slideshow includes pictures from the Boise National Forest/Payette Nationa; Forest areas; the Payette River was riotous due to the warm temperatures and subsequent runoff from the snowy peaks.
