The View From Up Top

Looking East and down into Pocatello from atop the mountains on the West edge of town...during golden hour.  Gosh.  I love this state.

Come on in!

The water's fine!

A calm stretch on the North Fork of the Payette River between Boise and McCall, Idaho.

Just around the next bend.

The Snake River Valley, just around the bend from Pocatello, prepares for a thunder bumper.

The Sound of Mountain Water:

Backside of Pebble Creek, at the top of Pebble Creek Road.
WARNING:  Getting here takes tough tires and a few creek crossings in your truck.  Pack a spare AND a camera.  It's beautiful.

The South fork of the hallowed Snake River drifting away under the summer light.
Good fishing.
Good water;
holy water from the roots of the Tetons and beyond.

Locals call it Southfork.
Everyone else calls it a destination.
How true.

With the sage and a mountain view;
spring winds and the scent of rain...
There's simply no place like Idaho.

Broken Wheels in the West

I was driving to Idaho Falls when I came upon seven horses in a ditch, blanketed and hitched to a fence line. A wheel blowout on I-15 gave need for unloading horses on the side of the highway, for safety reasons.
These guys were shocked when I pulled over in my skirt, heels and Honda Civic. They assured me that everything was alright and help was on the way. I told them I was glad and then asked if I could photograph them. There would have been no such doing elsewhere. I'd have been shy. I'd have been scared for my well being, perhaps. But I'm not afraid of Idaho cowboys. They're the salt of the earth and these two were glad to let me photograph their cowponies and their rig.

i didn't expect it
when i moved here
out of the heat of the southwest
i always have yearned for the
great northern plains
for those long stretches of flat gold
and a living sky
but the longer
i call the mountains home
the smaller the chance
i'll ever leave
