Sink or Float

DSC02460Starting off my summer with a broken arm didn’t lend itself to lots of extracurricular activities, but I did manage to have some fun despite my bum arm.

In July, we took a day trip up to McCall, Idaho to canoe up the river. My arm still was healing, so I had to be careful with it, which meant I didn’t have to row. Yippeee!!!

The Greenbelt has lots of parks along it…and a zoo.  Boise State University cozies up next to it as well (Go Broncos!).

Being a desert rat, I feel like Boise is lush and green (I know Easterners will laugh at that, but compared to Nevada & Southern Utah, it’s a garden paradise.  Trust me).

Things I see HERON Boise are: Continue reading
