Alice Lake, Sawtooth Wilderness.
It's this beautiful...and more.

Rooster & Hen

We spotted this blue grouse dancing for his lady while up in the Smoky Mountains of the Sawtooth Range.  This fancy fellow made me wish Robert had feathers...

Cow & Calf

I caught them nibbling willows 
on the Salmon River in the Sawtooth Range.
I bet they're glad spring is coming!
I am too.

Shoshone Falls

Located on the mighty Snake River, just East of Twin Falls, is Shoshone Falls -- also known as The Niagara of the West.
The cascade is not as wide as Niagara Falls but it boasts a bigger drop -- and best of all, you don't have to mingle with thousands of other people while trying to catch a glimpse of it!
Due to spring run off in this mountainous state, the Snake River is running higher than high and the water show was spectacular.
Wish you could have seen it for yourselves!

Big Country

I woke up in a 1973 VW Bus this morning.
This is what I saw when I looked out the window -- 
the unforgettable and lonesome Lemhi Valley, in the middle of May.

Idaho Smudged

I made this picture while up on Gibson Jack with RW this evening.  The rain was finely misting, all around, and the mountains were caped in low, white clouds.  It was a romantic hike.  My hands were numb and I couldn't get my camera to focus because I couldn't properly grab the focus ring!  So I just shot smudges instead.  It's dreamy.  Idaho is dreamy.  I think the result is appropriate.

I mean really, if Idaho can look this good out of focus, just imagine what you're missing when it's in focus!

Mountain Water

A bit of Rocky Mountain water managed to get caught in the cold.
This is City Creek actual with a righteous spring source just up the mountain.

Across the Street

This is my front yard.
Pretty, huh?
