Maybe it’s the packed local bookstores, or the homegrown breweries on nearly every block. Maybe it’s the way complete strangers smile and say hello in the street. Whatever it is, it makes Boise feel like home. Visit and you’ll see — you won’t be a stranger for long.

Bruneau Dunes State Park This popular park boasts North America’s highest single-structured sand dune at 470 feet. Rent a sandboard, and join fellow thrill seekers as you surf the dunes or simply stroll along the winding edges. If you decide to camp overnight, go to the Bruneau Dunes Observatory to enjoy stargazing late into the night.

Me s a Fa l l s Upper Mesa Falls, a massive waterfall towering as high as a 10-story building, pours over the remnants of an ancient volcanic super-eruption. A mile south, Lower Mesa Falls repeats the performance. Walk to the overlook for fantastic views, or wander among wildflowers on the surrounding nature trails.

Lake Coeur d’Alene Lake Coeur d’Alene spans 26 miles and boasts more than 135 miles of shoreline. This international destination is home to the Coeur d’Alene Resort but still manages to feel like Idaho’s best-kept secret. This is the perfect spot for northern Idaho adventures.

Balanced Rock This awe-inspiring natural formation will make you do a double take. The world-famous rock weighs over 40 tons and is 48-feet tall. Wind and rain have slowly manipulated the massive boulder to form one of nature’s most curious balancing acts.

Sawtooth National Recreation Area The Sawtooth National Recreation Area is bursting with adventure. With 300 high-mountain lakes and 700 miles of trails to explore, your biggest struggle will be choosing just one day’s worth of activities. When planning, give yourself an extra day or two to go hot springs hunting. This part of the state is known for its hidden healing waters.

S w a n Va l l e y Nestled along the banks of the South Fork of the Snake River, below Palisades Dam, is Swan Valley. Known for being one of the premier North American tailwater dry-fly fisheries, Swan Valley attracts families, explorers, and outdoorsmen from all over the Northwest. With stunning panoramic views, it’s a beautiful stop to simply take in the sights and cast your line.

Hells Canyon At its highest point, America’s deepest canyon dives a staggering 7,993 feet to the valley floor below. Hells Canyon carves its way along the Idaho-Oregon border next to the Seven Devils Mountain Range. While you’re there, be sure to take a guided float trip or jet boat tour between the giant slabs of green and black basalt walls of this mammoth canyon.

The center’s goal is to deepen the understanding of this historic area, which was shaped, in part, by the Lewis and Clark Expedition and Sacajawea, as well as her people, the Agai’dika Shoshone-Bannock Tribes.

WESTWARD, IDAHO

City of Rocks National Reserve, Almo

During the peak of the westward migration, from about 1840 to 1869, more than 300,000 d e t e r m i n e d e m i g r a n t s t r a v e l e d t h e O r e g o n Tr a i l to claim their own piece of the West.

The route largely followed the Bear River Valley and the Snake River in the south of Idaho before heading north through what is now the Boise area and into Oregon. Many Idaho locales reflect this time in history: the city of Pocatello is named for the Northwestern Shoshone chief.; the town of Fort Hall bears the name of an important trading post; and the town of Glenns Ferry developed around the site of a ferry launch that helped emigrants cross the Snake River. You can learn about the experiences of Oregon Trail travelers and the area’s native inhabitants at many points throughout the state, from historical markers to interpretive centers. Many sites are along or near U.S. Highway 30.

Big Hill East of Montpelier As emigrants entered present-day Idaho, they immediately came upon Big Hill, a tough ascent for tired oxen and pioneers who had just crossed the Wyoming desert. What lay over the top, however, was even worse. The descent was so steep that emigrants had to tie their wagon wheels together, locking them to keep the wagons from hitting the back of the oxen on the way down. You can still see the wagon-wheel ruts at roadside pullouts on U.S. Highway 30, east of Montpelier (mileposts 440.1, 441.7, and 454.5).

The center’s guides lead you westward in a covered wagon, as a live cast of “pioneers” tell stories that bring the journey to life. Re-enacted entirely within the center, this interpretive exhibit features historically accurate scenarios, leading you back in time to shop in a mercantile and gather ’round a wagon train campfire. The center sits on the site of the historic Clover Creek Encampment, where travelers would stop to rest their animals, stock up on food and water, and prepare for the next leg of the journey.

With expansive areas relatively untouched by population growth and light pollution, Idaho is ready to show you the night skies you’ve been dreaming of. Idaho is home to the nation’s first and only International Dark Sky Reserve. The Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve is one of only 13 in the world and stretches across 1,400 square miles, encompassing the cities of Ketchum, Sun Valley and Stanley, the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, and the counties in between. Its coveted Gold Tier status designation from the International Dark Sky Association is reserved only for the darkest of night skies, making it easy for you to see the Milky Way, meteors, comets, and other objects from deep space. No need for special equipment — your eyes will do the trick, but binoculars and telescopes are welcome.

YES, YOU CAN HIKE THE SAWTOOTHS By Scott Kranz

The Sawtooth Mountain Range is known as the crown jewel of Idaho. After spending even a short while in the area, its status as a real gem will be clear!

The trail is often wide, very gentle, and very well-maintained, without a lot of rocks. In total, one way, you’ll hike about 2.5 miles until you reach the wilderness boundary and a scenic meadow with stunning views into the Sawtooth mountains. Reap the rewards of this gentle hike by taking in the beautiful vista before returning the way you came.

Just west of Stanley rests the ever-beautiful Stanley Lake. Drive to the Stanley Lake Trailhead (be sure to sneak a quick peek of the lake on your way), just northwest of the lake. From the trailhead, hike a few hundred feet along Forest Road 649 until you see the main Stanley Lake Creek Trail (Trail 640), on which you’ll turn left. On this trail, you’ll hike on a wellmaintained trail and boardwalks, with frequent views of iconic McGown Peak. You’ll see signage along the way, but continue in the direction of Trail 640 or Bridal Veil Falls (which is a waterfall option farther than Lady Face Falls). After over 2 miles of hiking from the trailhead (one way), the trail will steepen slightly, and you’ll gain a few hundred feet of elevation. Once the trail flattens out again, you’ll see a small sign for Lady Face Falls at about 2.5 miles, where you’ll turn left and walk on a narrower boot trail for a few minutes until reaching a granite-walled gorge area. Partial views of the waterfall can be enjoyed safely from above. Take care on the sloping granite — be responsible, and be safe! Once you’re done enjoying the waterfall area, turn around and return the way you came.

Start your adventure at Redfish Lake Marina, where you’ll pay for a boat shuttle across the length of Redfish Lake (saving several miles of hiking each way). The boat shuttle will drop you off at Redfish Inlet Trailhead, where you’ll continue on foot. Hike the Redfish Lake Creek Trail to the southwest for about 2 miles, where you’ll see a side trail to your left leading only about 100 feet to the main creek and a primitive log crossing. After safely assessing the conditions, carefully use the logs to cross the creek and join the trail on the other side. Hike this trail for more than a mile until you reach the first of three Saddleback Lakes. Continue on to the main (middle) lake, and enjoy stunning views of iconic Elephant’s Perch.

Q:

What inspired your family to get outside and start adventuring?

A:

We both grew up in families that spent a lot of time outdoors, so when we got married and discussed having a family someday, it was a given that we wanted to raise our future kids to love the outdoors like we do. Once we had our boys, we started taking them camping, hiking, and even skiing with us as babies and toddlers. The early years were a lot of work, but those efforts have now paid off in dividends. There is nothing that we love more than being outside and exploring new places together!

Q: A:

“It’s important to teach our boys that life isn’t always easy but that they can do anything if they work hard and believe in themselves. ”

Why does Idaho stand out for you? Idaho is a hidden gem that so few really know about.

When people think of the Pacific Northwest, they typically think of Oregon or Washington and overlook Idaho altogether, but Idaho is full of incredibly beautiful and diverse landscapes with every outdoor recreational activity you could desire! Idaho is known for its world-class whitewater rafting (some of the world’s best rivers are found in Idaho!),

Q:

What is your family motto when it

comes to exploring?

A:

We have a few family mottos, but the one that sits on

snow skiing, backpacking and hiking, mountain biking, fishing, the list goes on. We also love Idaho because it’s not crowded or overrun by tourists, and the people here are some of the warmest, friendliest people you’ll ever meet.

Q:

Which adventure experience resonates

most with you?

A:

Our absolute favorite place to go is the Sawtooth

Mountains in central Idaho. Since our boys were small, we’ve made it a tradition to go camping or backpacking there every summer. Besides its breathtaking beauty, we love that it feels remote and away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We love taking friends there for the first time because without fail, someone will tell us they had no idea that this place existed or that Idaho is that beautiful. Some of our favorite experiences in the Sawtooths have been hiking to Goat Lake, paddling and fishing on Stanley Lake at sunset, and jumping off docks at Redfish Lake.

downhill for 15 miles, you ride through dark tunnels with headlamps on (the longest being over a mile!) and over sky-high trestle bridges through a beautiful forest. It is an adventure that our kids still talk about and a must if you take a trip to Idaho. We’ve paddleboarded to Shoshone Falls twice now because it’s just epic! Witnessing Shoshone Falls from the bottom is such a surreal experience. It’s a long day paddling 8 miles round trip but worth the effort. The views paddling in the Snake River Canyon and under the famous Perrine Bridge are incredible. Whitewater rafting is something you can’t miss if you are in Idaho during the summer. We’ve floated the Salmon and Payette Rivers many times, and each time it feels like the first time because it’s always different and fun. There’s something special about being on the river in the middle of a hot summer day. Our rafting days are filled with lots of hoots and hollers, plenty of laughs, and big smiles. Whitewater rafting is always a good time, and the scenery is amazing!

Q:

What do you hope your children take away

from the time you spend exploring with them?

A:

Nothing would make us happier than to see our kids

grow up and become parents and pass on a passion for the outdoors in their own children. My hope is that our boys hold on to all the amazing memories from our various adventures over their childhoods so that they can share those stories and experiences with their own children too. It is also important to us that they remember the many life lessons that they have learned in the outdoors, like not giving up when the going gets tough, and that life is sweeter and more meaningful when you relish in the journey instead of focusing solely on reaching the destination.

What inspired you to quit your jobs and focus on family?

A:

When you become a parent, people always tell you how quickly children grow or how fast it goes by. We have all heard it a million times. We realized the years started to stack as our babies grew older, and the thought of working through their most important years as children just didn’t sit well. Realizing how quickly the time really does pass by motivated us in a big way to spend as much time with the kids as possible. We always

Patrick reacts quickly, It’s been only 10 minutes since we were given our gear at the Boundary Creek put-in and since we received a safety talk on what it takes to paddle big rubber rafts and what to do if someone falls into the fast-flowing, wild water, and we’re already messing up. “Pull your life jacket straps real tight, so when you yank up on the shoulder straps your jacket doesn’t ride up,” instructed Solitude River Trips’ lead guide Adam to us on the bank before we embarked — most of us wide-eyed newbies. “If you fall in, you’ll be pulled out by your straps, not your arms.” I furiously tighten mine until I can barely breathe.

ISN’T THE ONLY THING THAT GOES BY FAST


RAPIDS, S’MORES & MAGIC By Chad Case

F i v e d a y s c a m p i n g a n d r a f t i n g o n I d a h o’s legendary Salmon River sounded like a perfect family vacation to me. When I pitched the idea to my family of five (my wife, Kathleen, my oldest d a u g h t e r, A n n i k a a n d m y i d e n t i c a l t w i n d a u g h t e r s , O l i v i a a n d E l s a ) , t h e a p p r o v a l r a t i n g w a s a b o u t 5 0 - 5 0 .

As parents, the overriding worry was the safety of our children in the whitewater rapids. Having been on several rafting trips with very safe and professional rafting guides, I felt there was no significant danger for my family; but Kathleen and Annika took a little more convincing.

78


From our very first meeting, the guides for ROW Adventures were all about safety and spent plenty of time teaching everyone about the best way to enjoy the river safely. Kathleen felt a strong need to be in the same raft as our kids, or at least nearby so that she could be sure of their security. This only lasted about half of the first day; seeing that the guides were professionally trained and so great with the kids quickly put her anxiety to rest.

Bald Mountain Ski Area At this “best little ski hill in Idaho,” you’ll find a friendly crew, a vintage T-Bar, and — locals swear by it — biscuits and gravy in the lodge. The ski area is tucked into the pine forests of the Clearwater Mountains, a beautiful backdrop for bunny slopes and black diamonds.

Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area From extreme terrain on the face — made up of three double black diamonds — to 800 feet of downhill joy on its tubing hill, Bogus is a blast for all ages and skill levels. It’s an easy day trip from Boise to hit the downhills, master terrain park jibs, descend the twists and turns of the Glade Runner mountain coaster. Find solitude on cross-country trails, or wait until the sun goes down and hit the slopes at night.

“I started making tortillas about five or six years ago; I made a ton of hockey pucks,” said Archambo. “I couldn’t figure out what was going on. And then I started playing with different fats, different flours, different gluten contents, until I just got it.” Archambo eventually settled on a blend of regionally milled low-gluten and all-purpose flours mixed with Melt, a locally produced organic vegan fat. He hand rolls the dough into spheres the size of golf balls. A wedge press flattens the balls into discs and spits them out onto a hot flat-top, where they pick up bubbles of color. After that, the tortillas are crisped to order over a crackling log of local cherrywood and kissed with a light smoky flavor.

preparations over quick, prepackaged shortcuts. And you can definitely taste the difference. At Tasso, a small natural-light-splashed sandwich shop in BODO, Dan Carruthers makes all of his business’ namesake deli meat from scratch. “Tasso ham is a kind of a ham that’s originally from Southern Louisiana, the Gulf area. It’s a Creole product originally, but we put our own spin on it,” he said. Carruthers buys Kurobuta pork from Christiansen’s Family Farm in Utah, which is shipped to him the morning after it’s slaughtered. After breaking down the pork, he cures the shoulder for 10 days in a blend of salt, sugar, and spices — like Hungarian paprika, ginger, and Gochugaru powder. He then dries the ham for three to four days, depending on weight, and smokes it. “It needs to get to 40 percent moisture loss to be ready — it really concentrates the flavors,” he said. Carruthers serves his house-made Tasso on a couple of sandwiches, including the best-selling Country Devil. “It’s a huge process and very labor intensive,” said Archambo. “We basically start making tortillas at about 9 a.m. …

“It’s our spin on the Cuban,” said Carruthers. “It’s got the smoked ham, roasted pork, pickled onions, mustard, and cheese

“I want them as fresh as possible so that when they hit the plate, they’re amazing.” And Archambo isn’t the only Boisean obsessed with handcrafted foods. Across the Valley, an array of artisanal businesses have popped up that favor more traditional, time-consuming The STIL Ice Cream Shop

and then savory sauce, which is a coffee-flavored mayo. It goes really, really well with the smoked ham.”

produces an extra-rich, dense ice cream with minimal “overrun,” or air, mixed in. From there, the shop gets creative with flavors like The Mad Hatter, made with pistachio butter and fresh mint, or the honey- and bourbon-infused Ed and Carl Take Reno.

“If you care about something, you kind of dig a little more. You get a little bit more involved,” said Shealy.

“One of our most popular flavors is the Idaho Wilderness — we use culinary-grade lavender from Red Chair Lavender, which is a local lavender farm just outside of Eagle,” said Allen. “We take that lavender flower, and we let it steep in that cream base overnight. ... We also add a berry compote of huckleberries, blueberries, and blackberries.” For Allen, running an artisanal business means focusing on quality ingredients, above all else.

“We use actual ingredients instead of flavorings or pastes or artificial colors or artificial ingredients,” said Allen. “So when I say ‘pistachio butter and fresh mint,’ that’s literally what it is.” Neckar Coffee A few blocks away in Neckar Coffee’s new whitewashed space at 10th and Main streets, laptop-tapping customers cluster at a long counter, sipping pour-overs from speckled mugs. Owners Grant Shealy and Zoe Davis have been roasting coffee and selling it from a cart at the Boise Farmers Market for the last few years. Recently, they made the jump to a brick-and-mortar, where they continue to roast all their beans in-house. Shealy sources a rotating assortment of green beans from the Coffee Shrub, an ethical coffee importer based in Oakland, California. From there, he begins the complicated process of roasting the beans to achieve a balanced flavor profile that highlights certain attributes and minimizes others.

“It’s not that people who don’t roast coffee don’t care about the coffee that they serve; it’s that you can’t roast in-house without having so many more conversations about the coffee that you’re serving. It really just opens the conversation.” Neckar Coffee


Neckar Coffee Sable Baking

Sable Baking Dialogue is equally important to Ashley Chapman, owner of the Bench-area micro bakery Sable Baking. Every Saturday morning, eager customers line up outside her small popup window on the side of French restaurant Petite 4, where she explains her handcrafted, European-style offerings — everything from Vollkornbrot, a dense German seed bread, to Kardemummabullar, a Swedish cardamom roll.

“I’m doing the whole process from start to finish,” said Chapman, “It’s an old-world style of bread, so it takes a lot of time and care and practice. It’s something that I wasn’t good at when I started, and over years of doing it and studying under people who have been doing it for a long time, I learned the skill. I feel like that’s how an artist treats their work.”

“My ultimate goal would be to stay as small as I am,” said Chapman. “I don’t really want to get into wholesale. I feel bad that I sell out pretty often. There’s a part of me that wishes I could grow my production a little more, but I’m not able to in the space that I am in, so it has to stay small.” Back at The Funky Taco, Archambo flips a slightly misshapen tortilla on the flat top. Since each of Funky Taco’s flour tortillas is hand rolled, they can vary in shape and size compared to their commercial counterparts. But when the press spits out a perfectly round tortilla, Archambo gets noticeably excited. “That’s butter!” he exclaimed, citing the kitchen’s nickname for a perfect tortilla. “The food that we’re trying to put in front of our guests, it needs to look beautiful, it needs to taste beautiful, but it also needs to come from a good place,” he said. “I think all of that defines artisanal food.”

Chapman learned her craft at the San Francisco Baking Institute before honing her skills at bakeries around the Bay Area. She eventually moved back home to Boise to open Sable Baking, where she focuses on naturally leavened breads that take around 48 hours, from start to finish. She hand mixes, shapes, scores, and bakes each loaf, which range from Apricot Semolina to Chili Paprika Levain. Though Sable has grown to include a weekly pop-up shop and monthly bread-share program, Chapman hopes to keep things boutique. Ta r a M o r g a n / / @ b o i s e f e e d

Idaho is fortunate to have three American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), each producing distinctive wines. The oldest in the state, the Snake River Valley AVA, encompasses 8,000 square miles with 1,125 acres planted. Overlaying the ancient Lake Idaho, the shoreline creates its natural boundaries. The result is a distinctive grape-growing region whose ancient volcanic sediment has bestowed fertile, well-draining soils that give growers better control throughout the grape-growing process. The Eagle Foothills AVA is a sub-AVA of the larger Snake River Valley AVA, and the only one located completely within the state of Idaho. Established in the foothills north of Eagle, the slope and aspect of the Eagle Foothills play an important role in sunlight reception, cold-air drainage, and frost and wind protection. The Lewis-Clark Valley AVA is the newest designation in Idaho, encompassing 479 square miles with 80 vineyard acres currently planted. Lewis-Clark Valley features steep canyons within the Clearwater and mid-Snake River drainages and their tributaries.

96


While AVAs are specific wine-grape growing regions defined by geographic features and finite boundaries, locals cluster popular wineries based on location. There are four primary regions in Idaho that remain top of mind with wine devotees.

Southwestern Wine Region Idaho’s Treasure Valley is rich in agricultural resources. The four-season climate, ancient volcanic soil, and abundant water supply make this an ideal place to grow grapes and make wine. The state’s heaviest concentration of wineries is within this region’s Sunnyslope Wine Trail and is part of the Snake River Valley AVA.

In addition to the local wineries, the region is also home to popular attractions, including Shoshone Falls and the BASE jumpers who frequent the Perrine Bridge. Grapes from this region benefit from the area’s cold nights and hot summer days to create the perfect balance of natural sugars and acids.
