Today when I got off work, I whistled my way down the stairs. I skipped across the parking lot towards my car. I was already pumped and ready to go as I turned the key in the ignition, dressed to outperform the other Boise Idahoans who would inevitably be taking advantage of the vast network of open space, just as I. After a five minute drive, I arrived from my downtown Boise office to the Boise River and Greenbelt system, the world's most convenient, and enviable place to do any number of things, from floating, kayaking, fishing to jogging, biking and walking. Just yesterday I went on a half hour jog during my lunch break, a breathtaking escape along the pristine river, the office in eyesight most the way. Today though, I was geared up for a

Idaho is one of the lucky places that experiences distinct four season weather with fairly temperate days and nights throughout the year. However, average winter temperatures do dip into the 30's and occasionally into the 20's overnight, so it's important to protect your Idaho home from the elements.

Rock climbing

My life isn't ordinary because I don't live in an ordinary place. I toss my gear into the hatchback and jump into the seat, ready to take on the challenges of the cliff face just above Boise, Idaho. I've been hooked to the natural terrain the Boise Valley offers ever since my first climb here, over two years ago. As I drive along the winding, scenic pathway up to the Lucky Peak Reservoir towards my favorite spot, the Black Cliffs, my heart races with anticipation.

I remind myself again to thank the Boise Idaho native, who convinced me that the best place to get my excess energy out was right there at home with him, the region's headquarters for all things recreational. It is available for all in some way or another.  It's thick in the air. It
