Idaho History Website to Explore

E-mail Print PDF

The South Fork Revue Website

South Fork Revue website

I admit it!  I knew nothing about the history of Idaho but that is slowly changing, thanks in part, to the "South Fork Revue" website.  The author, Evan Filby, gave up is day job as a scientist and teacher to explore his other interests.  History is one of these interests.   Here are some of the subjects he covers and some snippets:

1.  Lewis and Clark:  "Two days later, they gazed at the Bitterroots and realized that they were stuck. Lewis noted that the mountains "were perfectly covered with snow. The Indians inform us that the snow is yet so deep on the mountains that we shall not be able to pass them untill the next full moon or about the first of June;"

2.  The Fur Trade Era:  "The HBC's long honeymoon finally ended in the fall of 1824, when Alexander Ross led the Snake Brigade. They had camped near where the Pahsimeroi River empties into the Salmon. Then a "pilaged and destitute" band of his trappers straggled into camp ... and they were not alone. "

3.  Gold! Rush & Settlement:
  "On August 2, 1862, a party led by George Grimes discovered gold in the Boise Basin, deep in the rugged wilderness around the upper forks of the Boise River."

If you have any interest in Idaho history give this website an hour of your time to get a feel of how we grew into the 43rd State.

New Idaho Video's from Tim Bondy

1.  Seafoam Road in the Challis National Forest ATV Video



Taken on the gravel roads northwest of Stanley Idaho on Sunday September 19th, 2010.  This area is quite scenic and the road into this portion of the National Forest gives you great access to the more wild spots of Idaho.  The Frank Church/River of No Return Wilderness closely border this road giving you easier access to hiking trails and high mountain lakes.  Video is taken from the back of our Arctic Cat ATV.

Read my trip report on this trip at:  http://bondyweb.com/mountain-home-outdoors/54-not-so-local-outdoor-news/365-josephus-lake-atv-trip-seafoam-lake-area-near-stanley-idaho

2.  Joesphus Lake Video



This video of Josephus Lake gives you an idea of of the semi-easy access to a high mountain lake northwest of Stanley Idaho.  Taken on the same day as the Seafoam Road video.  

3.  Mountain Home Idaho's Fall Harvest Festival



Video taken during the Fall Harvest Festival on Saturday October 2nd, 2010.  See an impromptu straight-line skate demo and the local band “Workin on Fire”.  The festival was held in downtown Mountain Home.
