idaho: Discover beautiful Idaho >> Why I Love This State - 04/16/08 05:36 AM

Have you ever had the feeling that you took your home for granted?  Took your city for granted?  Took your state for granted?
I am a native Idahoan and have traveled to all but 7 states in this great country but I continue to be in awe of Idaho and the amazing diversity of this great state.  One can travel all over Idaho and feel like you have been in at least 5 different states.  It offers everything from deserts to majestic mountains and everything in between.
Last September USA today wrote the amazing article No End In Site For Idaho's Growth   and … (27 comments)

idaho: National Old Time Fiddlers Contest >> Weiser Idaho - 06/12/07 05:14 AM

 
Back in the mid 1980's my girlfriend at the time and I were driving through the town of Weiser Idaho during the time of the Old time Fiddlers Contest which is held annually June 18 through the 23rd.   The amount of people even back then was amazing to see in a little town of about 5,000 people.  It seemed like there were people from every state in the nation and several from foreign countries.
The National Old Time Fiddler's Contest in Weiser was started back in 1953 and every year growing up I would read about it in the news papers and … (14 comments)

Idaho has been discovered by thousands of people from around the world.  They come for the many attractions to the state from Sun Valley in the south to Coeur d' Alene to the north.  There are awesome rivers, lakes, streams and much more to marvel at.
Morley Nelson discovered something else that once again put Idaho on the map.  After World War II Morley moved to Idaho and fell in love with the "Birds of Prey" that made the Snake River Canyon in Southern Idaho their home.  He was so fascinated with the Bald Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, Hawks and dozens of other … (12 comments)

idaho: Ste. Chapelle Winery of Idaho - 04/23/07 03:25 PM
 
When conversations start across the country about Idaho I am sure that the topic of Idaho Potatoes comes up at one time or another in those conversations.   I'm sure this makes sense since so many commercials and articles have been written about that awesome crop that put Idaho on the national map.
Something else has been brewing in Idaho since immigrant wine-makers from France and Germany as far back as 1872 recognized that Idaho is a wonderful environment for wine grapes.  Dry summer weather and fast draining volcanic ash soils at elevations up to 2,800 feet provide healthy growing conditions.
Most of the vineyards in Idaho … (20 comments)

idaho: Boise River of Idaho - 04/20/07 06:47 AM
The Boise River has long been a beautiful part of S.W. Idaho and supplies irrigation water, rafting, boating and fishing opportunities as it has done for many over the years.  
The river runs approximately 75 miles long starting in the mountains east of Boise, the capital of Idaho.  As it runs through downtown Boise many beautiful parks border it and thousands take advantage of it during the summer months.  It is common to see the Boise River dotted with rafters and fishermen throughout Boise and other parts of the river as it makes it's way through neighboring Canyon County.  The river … (6 comments)
