Lower elevation, less inversion days. A lot to like and not a lot to dislike in Boise.

Bike a few miles along the greenbelt, stop at a riverside pub or restaurant, drink a beer, and cycle to the next one and so on. My suggestion is to begin at Ben's Crow Inn out on Warm Springs and cycle into town instead of the other way around.
Update, Ben's Crow Inn left us in 2017 and was replaced by homes. Lucky 13 in Harris Ranch which is also off of Warm Springs would be a good starting point.

Those views from Table Rock show a nicely developing and densifying city in an urban forest. Beautiful!

The local fall season has often been showcased here.
They should change the name of it for 'regeneration' or something cooler.
WTF does fall really mean? They call it automne here.

I was born in late October (the 27th), and I'm always kinda pissed when people say it's the death season.
That's moronic superstition, like poor superstitious people who read astrology.
I've heard of lots of stupid things in my life yet, but damn, that's one of the grossest.

You know, it's just when nature gets ready to be renewed, and then trees are in a fire color while they get rid of their outdated leaves and get ready for a bit of sleep.

Nature is often more poetic than humans themselves.
I wasn't born for death, huh.

seems like most people call it "fall" around here. a few still call it "autumn."

I call it Football Season.

my favorite time of year. Boise really shines with all the trees turning various shades of yellow, orange, and red.

give me a cool autumn breeze, a little rain on the window, a good football game on the tv, fire in the fireplace, and a bottle or three of Oktoberfest beer or late-season red wine, and I'm happy as a lark.

assuming the lark in question is also happy, of course.

Fellow Scorpio, I was born 3 days before your birth date. I think of Autumn/Fall as a regeneration of nature and life and a time to focus on what makes me, or you, or whoever happy in life. It is a season of incredible beauty, wisdom and appreciation. I've never thought of it as a death season. I guess if people are into hauntings and ghouls and goblins and focus too much on Halloween then they will associate the season with death.

I totally agree with what I highlighted in green in your post.

There is definitely something remarkable about Fall...or Autumn, especially in Boise and The Wood River Valley and of course The Sawtooth Valley

Thanks for the beautiful photos. Boise has so much natural beauty and seems so pristine when compared to other cities. I hope the nature/urban balance remains in check as the city grows.

Boise will remain a city which protects and cherishes its urban outdoors. Otherwise there would be hell to pay.

The last half of October and the colors are beginning to blaze in the near 70 degree heat.
