LOVE YOUR CITY - BOISE RIVER

5/21/15

It was the weekend and I managed to squeeze my pregnant belly into waders to go fishing right here on the Boise River. Something I love about living in Boise is how the river weaves through the center of downtown. In a matter of minutes you can go from work shoes to wading boots and fish during your lunch break. 

The Boise River is a 102 mile long tributary of the Snake River in the northwest. The River rises into three different forks; the North Fork, Middle Fork, and South Fork. Eventually it ends into the Snake River at the Idaho-Oregon border.

The Boise River is mostly used for fishing rainbow trout and steelhead in the winter. We always have a good time fishing local waters and exploring the beauty that surrounds our home. It's not all about the fishing, but getting outside and enjoying nature.

With our birthday right around the corner (the 25th!) I thought it'd be great to share this fabulous cake recipe I came up with. The trick is to use whatever chocolate cake (or any flavor) and frosting recipe you like. I have several, and ended up using our family dad's chocolate cake recipe for this one. It's even easier than it looks!

Mountain lakes are breathtaking. Soak in the views with us at Convict Lake. What a gorgeous place with such a neat history. See our posts HERE and stop on by next time you're in this neck of the woods. It truly is a sight to behold.

POW!

Mammoth has been getting dumped on! My husband and I went a week ago and had about 8" of pow pow. Today its been dumping all day, so this weekend is a great time to hit the slopes. Thought I would spread the little bit of good news :) Buy your lift tickets HERE. Have fun!!


ALABAMA HILLS MUST SEE

5/8/15

MONSTER ROCK

If you decide to camp in Alabama Hills, make sure you stop by and say hi to Monster Rock before you pitch your tent! His face changes often, as does his smile. Love the local artist creativity. And to your pleasure this guy is just a hop skip and a jump from the road in Lone Pine. Watch it's face evolve HERE.


MOBIUS ARCH

Yogis, master your arch photo better than I could for a rad shot of Mount Whitney through the infamous Mobius Arch. Only a short 5 minute hike required through the desert terrain. Definitely worth the pit stop. Find it HERE.
