Idaho Photos and Videos
The Picture of the Day / Week was added to show off more of Mountain Home, Idaho. There will be no rhyme nor reason behind these pictures. They will be pictures I think are interesting, humorous or I just like them.

The Bondy's from Mountain Home, Idaho wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Years. For those who are a little more “non-traditional” we wish you a Merry Wednesday, December 25th, 2013 and a darn good year of 2014. :-)
As the weather hasn't been cooperating, we haven't be out exploring at all. Hard to find cool rocks, minerals and gems when they are covered in snow. But I promise to lead you on more Idaho trips in 2014.

(May 5th, 2012) The supermoon event of the year was held by the heavens over Idaho last night. I captured the event as it was heading west over Bennett Mountain at 10:20PM. This picture was taken at latitude/longitude 43.279192, -115.532426 on the Prairie Cut-Off- Road.
The moon was actually bright enough that I could semi-easily hike through the sagebrush steppe. If I was thinking, I would have brought my fishing pole and tried my luck in Long Tom Reservoir. Ooops.
Photo of the strange structure from the front, looking into it.
Dog for Scale
Addie, my dog is featured to give some scale to this strange structure. She is about 3 feet from nose to butt and stands about 2 feet from ground to top of her back.
Under the Roof
Concrete base with some type of “turkey baster” or suction device lying in the bottom of the basin. Obviously the picture was taken on a slant so you have to adjust for this “oops Kodak moment”.

A strong, early season storm from the Gulf of Alaska moved through the Pacific Northwest and laid down a carpet of fresh snow on Bennett Mountain outside of Mountain Home. Snow reports around southern Idaho showed:
- Trinity Mountain: 9 inches
- Mud Flat Road in the Owyhee's: 1 inch
- James Creek Summit near Atlanta, Idaho: 5 inches
Mountain Home Youth Center
The Mountain Home Youth Center received a fresh coat of paint thanks to some volunteers.
I will be attending a Fund-raising brainstorming session at the Youth Center on Tuesday October 11th, 2011 at 7:00 PM. Theresa Bowman is organizing this event.
Stoecker Jewelers New Look
The building occupied by Stoecker Jewelers, Hair Base Barbershop and A Little Slice of Heaven recently got a much needed fresh coat of paint. Amazing how new a paint job can improve the looks of this little section of downtown Mountain Home.
Also looks like Stoecker's is getting a new and improved website found at: http://stoeckerjewelers.com
Hope you enjoyed theses pictures. Leave a comment if you wish.
Taken on May 10th, 2011 off Airbase Road. And does this also suggest they have more than one pig that lays eggs?
A photo at the confluence of Little Canyon Creek and Deer Creek in Idaho's Bennett Hills

Sunday, March 13th 2011: This hike was suppose to be much longer but the ground in the Bennett Hills was soft, muddy and not a good time to be off-trail. My original plan was to hike up Peak 4678 northwest of the lower portion of Deer Creek but I had to stay west of Little Canyon Creek.
Overall, this was the worst hikes I have ever taken. It was so muddy and soft I basically hopped from rock to rock the entire 2 miles. As of March 13th, 2011 I do not recommend any form of recreation off Bennett Mountain Road until it dries out.
Details of the Photo
Photo Taken: 43.128857, -115.283954 or about ½ miles off Bennett Mountain Road.
Looking: Northeast up the Deer Creek Canyon.
Date and Time: March 13th 2011 at 3:32pm or 2132 UTC.
I'll be the first to admit I shouldn't have taken this hike. But I did my best to stay off the mud and on the rocks. It was an ankle twisting trip. Have any similar trip that you have taken? What do you think of the Photo of Deer Creek? Leave a comment.
Click to see a larger version of this low-level rainbow
On Sunday, March 6th 2011 while heading out to take my dog for a walk, I came upon this low-level rainbow with the Bennett Hills in the background. With the lack of snow in the low levels this year, winter scenery around Mountain Home has been limited to brown and more brown. So when I saw this undeveloped rainbow, I had to get a shot of it.
Location: 43.085603, -115.593249 or on Bennett Road near the Elmore County Landfill.
Time: 2:11 PM or 2111 UTC
Picture Aspect: 100mm digital zoom while looking northeast.
