You see a lot of deer. Do they ever follow you home?

Thanks for taking the time to post more!!!!!!


I must say Boise has among the most beautiful city parks and urban river corridors anywhere, period. I miss this all so much when I have to leave.

You're welcome.

I agree with you about our parks and the river, the Boise River and Greenbelt are an icon and the hundreds of acres of green lush parkland by downtown is insane natural perfection within an urban environment. The natural setting within the city and out of the city is tremendous and there is always plenty of eye candy to take photos of. btw, a new camera is on the way to me.

The city parks in Boise speak for themselves so this news is not a surprise...
The American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration
and the National Recreation and Park Association have ranked Boise a gold medal finalist for its excellent park system.

Fall update from a Hazed and Hazy Saturday

The climatic Fall color show is still a week or two away, the city is still pretty green. These are all just playtime photos, I'm going to have a thread up later this month in the city photo forum.

That last shot is great. I really like how the giraffes can peek over into the park as well.

October 29th. A few views from above Military Reserve @ Eagle Ridge

Thanks Visualize.

Later next week I hope to post my official fall thread in the city photo forum. Most of my photos I will post in that thread will be different from photos in this thread. I'm giving it time because we have not even peaked yet with the fall colors.





Looking over The Northend










and yours truly, a little view of downtown.

Black Forest @ Military Reserve/Fort Boise, about 1 mile on bike from the Capitol

Military Reserve in the Foothills is 460 acres and is basically adjacent to downtown and connects over 130 miles of mountain biking and hiking trails known as the Ridge to Rivers Trail System to the Boise River Greenbelt.




Here are a few photos, more will be in the photo thread I will be posting in the city photo forum.



Looking down the Gulch which has a creek. Fort Boise and downtown are close by, to the right of this view.











This is a sweet mountain biking trail

Bump... because the MW forum seems to be a bit slow lately and an injection of diversity into the mix is needed on occasion. Any more photos Mr. Sawtooth?

^ I love those last snow shots. It seems to be a typical occurance that there is a defined snow line that sits just above the valley through most of the winter. I'm curious what the actual height above the valley floor that is usually located at. If it's low enough, I think it would be amazing for Boise to get some 'real' towers in the future that stepback towards the top, literally creating snow capped skyscrapers....talk about picturesque skyline shots, and a unique marketing tool for an ambitious developers building!
