The Golden Month of September
September is the ninth month of the year, and as shocking as it is, we've already reached it this sesquicentennial year in Boise, Idaho. September means school is back in session, that the first day of fall is right around the corner, and that we're that much closer to the end of the year.
September, at first glance, is simply just another month out of the year, but there's actually much more to September than you likely ever thought. September begins on the same day of the week as December each and every year, because there are 91 days separating September and December, a multiple of seven (the number of days each week). No other month ever ends on the same day of the week as September. September is the ninth month of the year, but the actual word September comes from the old Roman word 'septum,' which means seven – not nine. In the old Roman calendar it was the seventh month, but after the calendar reform that added January and February to the start of the year, September became the ninth month, but of course – retained its name.

The Treasure Valley Idaho is absolutely gorgeous in the fall, and is the ideal time to explore the perimeter of this exciting area – particularly if this summer's extraordinary heat put you off from the great outdoors. But with rapidly shrinking days and a sun that's not quite as overbearing, this time of the year is perfect for traversing the trails along the foothills, hiking in the Seven Devils or scaling the cliff side along Lucky Peak Reservoir. Or, if you're not the type for extreme adventure sports, walking the greenbelt, lazily floating the Boise River, or going on an afternoon excursion around your own neighborhood can be just as revitalizing.
The Treasure Valley stretches across a large area of land from as far as Boise to the Oregon border. It is where the Payette, Weiser, Boise, Malheur, Owyhee, and Burnt rivers drain into the Snake River. The area is named for the treasure chest of resources and opportunities that the region offers, and was settled mostly by ranchers and farmers, and became a thriving community when the Northern Pacific Railroad reached its borders. As the current home of the Boise metro area, it is now the most thriving area in all of Idaho. With a diverse area that includes Boise, Nampa, Meridian, Caldwell, Kuna, Star, Middleton, Eagle and many other small Idaho communities, it is one of the most livable places in the country. September is the month when the Treasure Valley transitions into a beautiful, crisp outdoor paradise.
