North Of Mountain Home, Idaho
Sunday April 13th, 2008 was a beautiful day in southern Idaho. The sun was shining, the skies a deep blue and the winds were relatively light. Temperatures topped out in the upper 70's or least that is what my thermometer said.
We decided to take a quick trip into the mountains north of Mountain Home. Within 40 minutes we were stopped at a turn out on Tollgate Road off Highway 20. A quick walk up a small hillside provided us with a great view of Mountain Home from above. There were small patches of snow in the more protected places in this area.
We spent about 30 minutes on the hill looking at rock, plants and the great view. We then hopped back into the truck and made out way west on Tollgate Road / Immigrant Road. The mountains and views remained pretty much constant the entire way. Once we hit the bottom of the hill on this road we turned around and headed back to Highway 20. We had to contend with a few curious cows but that is to be expected I guess. Not a problem for me.
Then we headed for the Anderson Dam Road off Highway 20. Being too new to the area, this was going to be our first trip down this road. As anyone in Mountain Home can tell you, the mountains are still holding on to their snow pack. The vista's were awesome driving on Highway 20 and on the Anderson Dam Road. We didn't feel like going much further and spotted a place to park along side the road. There was obviously a canyon of some type just a short walk through about 6 inches of snow. We got some mighty cool picture along this canyon.
Idaho is a wonderful place to explore. Check on back here for more pictures and see what the Bondy's in Southern Idaho are up to. It's our “life just off Interstate 84 in Idaho”.
