Memorial Day Weekend in Boise ID

Flag with sunWe stayed four nights in Boise ID at the Hi Valley RV Park — a nicely maintained park. 

Boise is the home of "The Peregrine Fund World Center for Birds of Prey".  At the World Center they propagate birds of prey for release to the wild. They house about 200 falcons and condors for breeding.  They have several captive birds (broken wings) and birds which, when born, saw humans before they saw another bird — imprinting I believe — and cannot be release. 

One park had 800 American Flags erected for Memorial Day weekend.  Absolutely beautiful. 

We went up to Idaho City, a very small, almost ghost town, that once was the largest city in the northwest of the United States, during the 1860 gold rush.  There Herb tried his skills at quick draw, with target, electronic timer and wax bullets.  He did a respectable 1.05 seconds, beating anyone else we saw that was also a total amateur.

We looked around for homes in the area.  We were especially impress with one builder — Feekes, who is currently building in Banbury Meadows in Eagle ID, a suburb of Boise.

Herb wanted to bicycle the trail following the Boise River, but did not get a chance — next time.  But we did have fun at a street fair on six blocks in downtown Boise, one block from the capitol building.  We had a pleasant time with Ted and Gail, our friends from Desert Shadows RV Resort near Palm Springs, where we snowbird.
