Nice little city, big town, hardly metropolis.

Nice pictures. I was wondering where the nature pictures were, but they came along after a little bit. I've heard that Boise is a pretty fun city to visit!

Ha ha ha, so are all infrastructures to climb the mountain without using one's legs, including those for the winter.
We all want to enjoy the way down; the only way to go if you're too lazy to walk.

Man, I wish I could climb the Alps on a mountain bike, but my thighs burn so awfully, it's unbearable.
You got to be an ancient god like Hercules or Thor to make it.
Even professional cyclists have to take dopes to go through the worst stages in the mountain, just to please their fans and keep their sport up.
Seriously, that's inhuman.

Seriously, that's inhuman.

there are plenty of people here who make the journey from Boise to Bogus on their bikes. that's 16 miles and nearly 5000 feet of elevation gain.

and they do it for "fun".

that's a whole level of crazy I can't relate to...

Great shots, you show off Boise well! My brother and his family moved there recently and love it. Great little downtown, lots of restaurants and bars, and so clean clean clean!

What a beautiful little city! Very impressive. Is it just me or does Boise have a bit of a low key Scandinavian vibe to it?

that's an interesting observation.

There aren't very many Scandinavians in Boise (me being one of the few), especially compared to the Midwest where I grew up. But the "vibe" of Boise is very much similar to Scandinavian cities -- the people are very nice, and the city is squeaky clean and safe.

The weather, however, is milder and drier.
