100 Degrees a perfect day to be down by the river.


The City Of Boise and neighboring Garden City has a bike path that runs along the Boise River. It is approximately 25 miles of continuous bike & walking trail. It starts and stops again in other parts of the valley to our west, but is not connected. I have read for years they want to have a continuous trail from the Oregon border to east Boise, but there is to much private property and environmental concerns.

Shared with Good Fences   

The greenbelt crosses over the river several times with a series of bridges.  
If you look closely you will see that this gentleman has a small Cocker Spaniel in his basket. The dog was just looking around enjoying the ride. 
This is the first time I have seen these signs. I think it is great to see Cities all over the country working to preserve wildlife. I am old enough to remember in the 60's and 70's when this was unheard of.   
Every years a local television station along with Saint Judes Children's Hospital sell tickets to win a "dream home" The was one of the homes a few years back. In this case it was not the expansive home or property that made it a dream home, it was that it was environmentally sufficient. 
A sign of the times, smoking is not allowed on public walkways.

Have a safe holiday, thank you for visiting
