Boise was a very nice, artsy, college town. The city has a great downtown district with preserved turn of the century buildings converted to businesses, bars and restaurants. There are many greenspaces and well the mountains are right there.
I was working in Mountain Home at the AFB and well there isn't really anything to do in Mountain Home so I drove to Boise about 45 minutes away.
The road there is very desolate especially at night, for Mountain Home is really a misnomer of a name, the city is in the Idaho near flat desert, grant it the desert is surrounded by mountains.
The best thing about Mountain Home was that it is centrally located and I was able to take a drive to beautiful Sun Valley and Ketchum.
This is a photo taken from the winding road that meanders its way toward Bogus Mountain. Below in the valley you can see Boise.
Bogus Mountain is a good sized and beautiful ski park only minutes from Boise.
- In a nutshell:Interesting, cultural, vibrant college town, next to the great outdoors!
