Here are some photos I have taken randomly over the past few months. Some were taken during the Saturday Farmers Market, some on regular business days, some from the Basque Wine Festival and some during a ceremony for a Gold Medalist in the current Olympics who is a Boisean.
I have also included the Boise River and Greenbelt.
Almost all of the pics were taken in the downtown area except for a few river pics taken just East of downtown in Parkcenter.
These pictures give a good idea of what summer is like in Boise, Idaho.
A few skyline shots taken from Crescent Rim, both taken in early Summer.

Ahead and to the west was our ranger station - and the mountains of Idaho, poems of geology stretching beyond any boundaries and seemingly even beyond the world. Norman Maclean
Thanks for the beautiful pictures. I like how the Downtown seems to be the center of activity instead of some bland mall on the outskirts of town.
Boise looks so tidy and clean and is somewhat conformist in feeling to me, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I suppose I need a city to have an eccentric, eclectic, peculiar and gritty side to it too.
