Bikes, bands and brews! Boise looks very comfortable and fun. I've really got to get out there. The capitol park looks very much like the one in Sacramento. What's under construction?

Boise is always looking good and I am glad to be here currently on business! People are everywhere on their bikes. Your knack for detail and your talent never disappoint.

The tower is the Zions Bank Idaho Headquarters, the new tallest amongst our baby skyscrapers. The white crane is for JUMP which will be a new urban park with underground parking, an above ground garage and a 6 floor event center and various art studios.

The photo with the green fencing is for a new Trader Joe's.

Thanks Visualize and mttop. I'm looking forward to rafting the river this summer and hopefully the South Fork of the Payette too.

Thanks Danny and DetroitSky.

Danny, I have a few Basque friends here in Boise with ties to Madrid and they are going on a trip to Spain later this summer. I wish I could go with them.
