Some more pics I have taken this summer for a little project I put together for another website where city photos are showcased. I think this illustrates what the Boise lifestyle is like and epitomizes the very best of what Idaho has to offer. There are not a lot of larger cities that have the fortune of a river like the Boise River and the amenities it provides; it is a blast to float on hot summer days, the river is straight out of the Sawtooth Wilderness drainage and is referred to as the heart and soul of Idaho's largest city.
Idaho also has several other cities with rivers too, and I have some pics of various areas of the state.
Photography is a hobby of mine and I am in the process of starting an artist cooperative in my back alley garage in the Northend of Boise where I live.


Enjoy

These are great! I like how they show some diversification amongst the people.

There's always something fun to explore in Boise!

I think Boise was voted best bike trails in the country about a year ago.

Some nice pics there. Brings back some great memories. I love floating that river. One of the cleanest and coldest anywhere! A perfect place to spend a hot afternoon.

Thumbs up More please ...

Just like any great show, your pictures have me clapping for an encore!!

Great photos. I loved it.

If you are so inclined, I would love to request some neighborhood shots ... you know, long shots down a nieghborhood street of homes ...different residential areas ...neighborhood parks or schools ... whatever ... I'm a glutton for good Boise / Eagle and Meridian pictures. it would be great to get a feel for neighborhoods / the areas where people live and play.

I have now created a WONDERFUL screen saver with 20 or so of your pictures. Thanks so much for sharing and taking the time to post.
