Idaho Sunsets

October and November provide the Treasure Valley with weather conditions that produce one of these spectacular fall skies about every two weeks.....as the setting sun draws color from the leaves and spreads the heavens with a blazing quilt :-)

Spencer Reservoir

A cold wind bites across the water closing the skim ice around the resting waterfowl.  The first snows sift through the brittle air, dusting the southern flanks of the Owyhees as winter slips into the high country.

Cold slides into the valley and under the white bones of aspen, a diminutive maple flames against the roiling autumn sky.

Fall Crunch

Yellow leaves rustle down, softly spatting like rain, while under foot there is a satisfying crunch.

As we descend towards the somber moods of winter, we cling to light and color.  Once fall colors pass, our celebrations employ candles, lights and color to drive back the darkness.

Falling Leaves

Time has changed, the rains have come and early morning frost visits the yard.  Even as we cling to the light, the days shorten towards winter solstice.  The trees drop their leaves and rest before spring renews life.

North Fork Payette

Just watching these athletes gives me a rush.  Watching them on the North Fork leaves my heart in my mouth. Wish I had the skill, the strength, the youth....but these light squirt boats weren't even invented when I had all that.  Overs anyone?

Kayaking the Middle Fork

Getting in a few fall runs.  The drench of cold water, the adrenalin rush, recalling the scout, picking the route.....  Idaho perks.
