    Winters are brutal. Summers are spectacular in my area. Thing about Idaho is its diversity. Where I live I have desert and sand in one direction, mountains, streams and lakes in another and a long valley full of agriculture in another. All within 40 miles.

    I lived in Idaho Falls for 7 1/2 years. Beautiful country.
    The camping is stellar !! (Fall Creek) The fishing is great. I don't hunt, but everyone else does.
    Western wear is seen a lot. I owned a pair of cowboy boots while there from Bish Jenkins western store. That's where we got jeans too.
    Smitty's is the place to eat down at the falls on a Sunday where the Baby Dutchman will knock your socks off.

    3/4 of the year is beautiful, but the winter is holy hell !!
    First time we ever had to shovel a roof.
    First time I ever knew that cars of deisel gelled and quit running.....semis too.
    First time I ever saw a car plugged in.
    First time I was ever in -35 degrees for over a week!!!

    All over town there were signs that read...."Welcome to Idaho, set your clock back 25 years."
    Look up why there's Navy in Idaho Falls with no water nearby....big water.

    Boise was always called the banana belt because it's much milder there.

    Hubby had drivers in Salmon and Challis, but I never got up there.

    There were lots of spud trucks and you could gather potatoes that spilled out on the roadside when they turned too sharply. This was before they had to cover the loads.
  13. That's so beautiful. I talked to a guy today from there. He said its a beautiful state. The way he described it I thought I'd start a thread to see if I could find some stuff out. That picture sums it up. Beautiful. There is a God and he's truly great.

    It doesn't matter where you are. If you work for UPS it's always sunshine and lollipops.

    I only saw a few scorpions the last time I was there. I've seen more snakes in NY.
