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.

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.
Boise looks like a pretty happenin place, i would not have thought it was. It looks like a great place to be.
“A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said ‘I love your pictures – they’re wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.’ He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: ‘That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove.” -Sam Haskins
