We wanted this episode of Outdoor Idaho to be a piece of beauty and comfort, a breath of fresh air. A welcome relief from the barrage of frightening information we’ve had to consume, comprehend and regurgitate over the past 15 months. A step outside for those trapped indoors.
And that’s what this show is, a delightful tour around the state in which we explore the unexplored with the people who understand the unexplored more than most.
We began our journey with a trip down the Bruneau River in Southwest Idaho. Spring rafting makes for rainy rafting – but also awe-inspiring sunsets. After drying off we moved to the Curlew National Grassland where bird calls pieced the air like a fireworks show. Then to the canola fields of central Idaho, the winding South Fork of east Idaho, a granite spire in north Idaho. We visited a serene lake bay, a frozen mountain top, trees that reach into the clouds, a canyon with Caribbean-blue water, a rock garden and picture-perfect alpine lakes.
