I saw that article too and found it very strange. As soon as I saw it I figured he had no chance at being Governor. He's mixing in religion too much. If you think the constitution is being abused, then use that as your platform. You don't need to single out your church with it.

That is crazy. I know the non native Canadians have invaded places like Lowman and Sun Valley. In the winter you can see the Canadian wolves walking through the streets of Lowman and Hailey/Ketchum/Sun Valley. Maybe Tom Hanks will get set straight by a pack of wolves! If you ever decide to snowshoe up beyond Bogus Basin towards Idaho City keep your eyes peeled.
My mom had a pack of wolves that moved in for an extended period of time on the mountain right behind her house in Hailey/Sun Valley (Greenhorn Gulch, west of Hwy 75). It is one thing if the wolves are in remote wilderness in Alaska, Canada, or elsewhere but your opinion of wolves can change very quickly when they reside in very close proximity to people. My mom said that the wolves seemed to lose their tendency to avoid humans and often came close to the homes in this area and killed from the elk herd not for subsistence but for sport instead.

Check out this video from a Twin Falls news station from back in March.

Bald Mountain Lodge developers were sent a clear message Monday night that their proposed five-story hotel on Main Street would be scrutinized from every angle before the Ketchum Planning and Zoning Commission even votes on approving the design.

Hate to chime in for just this BUT this is NOT Banner Summit Sawtooth. It's either Mores Creek Summit or the summit just outside of Lowman (Beaver Creek).

Outside of that, Great pics! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for catching my mistake, my bad. I meant to say Banner Ridge which is at Beaver Creek Summit. I took those photos at a pullout right by the elevation sign at Beaver Creek and the Banner Ridge Nordic skiing area.

Ah! I see. I just didn't want somebody getting confused looking for Banner Summit (which is quite aways away) and really only has a view of the avalanche gates for blocking the highway...LOL!

The mountain in view is called Steel Mountain which happens to be the highest point visible in the Treasure Valley.

That's true about the avalanche gates

Do you know the name of this mountain? I am looking on my forest map and can't see a name. This view is from one of the park and ski lots at Mores Creek Summit. It kind of looks like Steel Mountain but has more trees.

I haven't been able to figure that mountain out for sure. Seems like it should be Pilot Peak and Freeman Peak but that's to the west. I know I get twisted around on the road pretty good, but isn't this view to the east? Might it be Sunset Mountain?

It seems like I was looking northeast and I was near Whoop-em-up campground.

I don't know Sawtooth. That mountain(s) has baffled me for years. Like you said earlier, nothing lines up with the view on the maps. I doubt it but it might just be a few more of the endless un-named mountains in the state.

Pocatello is getting some love

Best Old House Neighborhoods 2010: the West and Northwest
http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/phot...738769,00.html

The West Side, Pocatello, Idaho
Since the mid-1990s, "the West side of Pokey," as locals call it, has transformed itself from beat-down to bohemian. Young, forward-thinking couples are moving here to raise families, and young business owners are opening bookstores, brewpubs, and bike shops catering to those looking for a cool, creative lifestyle far, far away from big cities, like New York or San Francisco. The West Side is also luring outdoorsy types, who love the area's skiing, hiking, hunting, and fishing, and retirees looking for a stimulating college town to live in. (Pocatello is home to Idaho State.) The West Side got its start in the late 1800s as home to hundreds of working-class employees of the Union Pacific Railroad. As the town grew and businesses started moving in, many of Pocatello's more affluent families started coming here, building large, luxurious Queen Anne mansions.

The Houses
Most date from the 1920s and 1930s. Despite the growing popularity of the neighborhood, West Side real estate prices remain affordable, hovering just above the $150,000 mark, but at press time we found a 2,100-square-foot, five-bedroom 1920s house for just $109,900.

Why Buy Now?
Investment in the West Side has been steady since the mid-1990s, when urban pioneers began restoring its old houses and commercial buildings. The economy in Pocatello is surviving the downturn thanks to stalwart employers, such as Idaho State and the medical and semiconductor industries.

There are a lot of different areas you can visit because the mountains and forests north, east , and west of Boise flow for hundreds of miles without interruption in all three directions, the mountains and forests continue all of the way north to Canada and to the eastern and western borders of the state. The landscape is a good example of why Idaho is considered the most mountainess of any state in the lower 48.
