Exploring Idaho

Driving north, we took a weekend trip to Lowman, Idaho. We enjoyed the private hot springs in the hotel and did not try out the pool.  I was sad to see all the damage from the wildfires in the past. Some trees are growing back, but it take a long time and there is a lot of soil erosion too. The streams and rivers were running very rapidly, I assume from the snow melting in the mountains.

On the way back, we took Route 21, very windy, curvy and scenic, lots of canyons.

The next weekend we took a long (2 1/2 hour) drive south to Shoshone Falls.  That was beautiful too.
I am still struggling with hills so we did not do any hiking although there was a trail there I would like to explore when (and if) my knee heals.

I'm working on a couple of paintings and experimenting with materials. More on that next time. I am enjoying my new home in Idaho and there are many places to explore. We even found some easy trails not too far from our house along the Boise River.
