Sweet as can Bee

This week has been busy; still painting the interior of my house, bringing home decor back in one piece at a time, and preparing for our big 3 day family reunion.  (cooking is a lot of work!)

I took the time to quickly make a card for a dear friend of mine.

Rivers and Lizards

I grew up in Eastern Idaho…  We lived fairly close to the Snake River.    The school I went to was Snake River.   I moved to Boise as a teenager and didn’t think much about the river at that age.    You can read all about this amazing river HERE.   It runs down along the Eastern part of Idaho, across the Southern part of Idaho and into Oregon.  There are crappie, bass, trout, catfish and sturgeon that weigh 100’s of pounds.   The pioneers had to cross this great river as they trekked along the Oregon Trail. 

The Snake River runs through the Snake River canyon about 20 miles South of Kuna. (my home) It is an old lava flow way out in the desert.   On the way to Silver City (old silver mining ghost town in the Owyhee mountains), there was a Ferry that crossed the river.  It was a route to get from Boise to Silver City and to San Francisco.   

Over the weekend we stopped at a little museum near this part of the River.   There is now a large bridge that crosses the river.




We drove along the river until we arrived at Marsing Idaho.  The river is pretty wide and smooth through this area of Idaho. 




Looking across the river there are several orchards and a couple of wineries.  The biggest one is St Chapelle .  You also have a perfect view of Lizard Butte.


Idaho sure has some beautiful scenery.

M4H P52: 24/52

I was out fishing over the holiday weekend.  The Snake River runs fairly wide and smooth through the Owyhee desert.   We stopped near Marsing, Idaho and I took a picture of this fishing boat as it zoomed by.  I added a fun little Topaz Labs edit to it.
