Road Trip Part 2: Boise to Salt Lake City

DSC_0316Yesterday I drove from Boise, ID to Salt Lake City, UT, but before I headed out, I made a couple of stops in Boise. After breakfast, I drove a couple miles north into downtown to the state capitol building to snap some photos. When I was done snapping some photos, I did some hiking on the edge of town that provided some great mountain top views of the city. The trail I chose was called the Homestead Trail, and the weather was perfect for hiking. There were very few trees in Idaho, and the hike provided views of sagebrush, different grasses, and a variety of blooming wildflowers. On my drive between Boise and Salt Lake, I made one stop at Shoshone Falls in Twin Falls, ID. Shoshone Falls is a huge waterfall sometimes called the “Niagara of the West”. Once I had taken in my fill of beauty there, I headed down to Salt Lake City. There were very few trees along the highway, so none of the beautiful mountains views along the way are obstructed. It’s such a beautiful drive that it’s hard to keep your eyes on the road at times.
