  • Roses in the theme park?

    There is also a store in the theme park that sells roses. Not sure why would people go there to buy roses.

  • Free Samples at the Potato Museum

    The Idaho Potato Museum is located in Blackfoot, Idaho. Featuring informative exhibits that give a good overview of the history and cultural impact of potatos, there are also fun exhibits such as the largest Pringle chip ever made, a tuxedo made from potato sacking and a print of Marilyn Monroe in a short tunic made from a potato sack- because she...

    Stunning mountain ranges jutt out from those incredible Rocky Mountains. Snuggled next to the little town of Stanley in central Idaho. Aptly dubbed the "Sawtooths" for their blade sharp points.Plenty of lodging options in Stanley, breathtaking views and trails for miles up into interconnecting high mountain lakes. Small trail head fees apply so...

  • Capitol Park

    If you are a photographer that is looking for some excellent opportunities to photograph the capitol, I woud recommend taking a stroll through Capitol Park. Located directly across from the state capitol building, it is a small accessible park.

  • The road to Lick Creek summit!

    Idaho is beautiful, open, and clean! There are so many backroads and unexplored areas that anyone who craves a bit of peace can take off and find some! This area is great for camping, fishing, hiking and what we are doing...motorcycling!

    RUBY RIDGE - - - The 1992 confrontation between federal agents and the Randy Weaver family in Ruby Ridge, Idaho, has become one of the most controversial and widely discussed examples of the abuse of federal power.---Randy Weaver and a small army of federal agents lumbered into deadly conflict more by accident than design.Each side was spurred on...

    Area around Lake Christine near McCall. The Boise Forest had just had a major forest fire. The landscape was surreal. In the middle of July, high up in a lonely valley, I found the last chunk of snow left from winter. It was going to be gone soon. A tiny creek had carved it in to a starnge shape.

    Soda Springs phosphate plant. This might seem like a weird thing to go see, but there are some cool things about it. There are tours, but I don't know much about those. The operation, from the mining to the processing, is very interesting. If you're on time driving around the west side of the plant (which is north of town), you can see the molten...

    The Bone Road. It's famous among locals; a 60-mile stretch of empty, potholed road through some of the most spectacular scenery in all of Idaho. It's not on very many road maps, but it goes from the north end of Soda Springs to the town of Iona. It's common to see moose, elk, deer, badgers, coyotes and occasionally a mountain lion. I even sighted a...

    We wanted to visit a real ghost town, so our friends took us to Silver City (fairly near Boise). I say fairly near, when we left the highway we thought we'd taken the wrong turn. We drove up a dirt track for 20 miles. The drive was quite forbidding as we got further up the track which began climbing to high elevations with nothing to stop your car...

    Most people miss most of Idaho. My favorite area's are the Sawtooth Mountains, Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness and the Hell's Canyon Wilderness.Plan on using a pack team or float trip from some deep wilderness adventures.With a 4 wheel drive vehicle and maps from the local ranger station, you can plan wonderful off road adventures.

    Balanced Rock is in the Guiness Book of World Records. It is one of the most amazing wonders in this world. Now this is some serious physics! It's amazing that such a huge rock can be sitting on top of a small rock! We used to go here and spray paint our names in the rock. There was a canyon on each side of balanced rock, with natural hot springs...

    Roosevelt Lake is a small lake which was created by a mudslide in the 1850s (I think). SCUBA diving in the lake is very interesting because several cabins and a small tavern were flooded when the natural blockage occurred. The rooftops floated off most of the buildings. In the tavern you can still see many furnishings including tables, chairs, and...

    Most people only see the southern part of the state as the interstate runs through it and therefor miss the majesty of our mountains. Mccall and Stanley are in the heart of Idaho with pristine Lakes, beautiful parks and lots to see and do for the whole family. Stanley is 45 miles from Sun Valley which is a skiers paradise in winter and a golfer and...

    Most of the state is off the beaten path. Go in any direction and you will find new discoveries of incredible beauty. Most of the northern part of the state is where you will find the Rocky Mountains and forests. In the south you will find fertile farms and fields and peculiar rock formations with vast open spaces. The picture is of a little known...
