We still love this part of the world, partly due to the happy memories of driving our children on our annual trek from British Columbia to visit relatives in Southwest Colorado, driving on Interstate #84 for much of the way, including right through Boise.
The cars always looked new and clean, and everything looked well tended in Boise. Most important, the people are really friendly. When we saw a chance for a quick trip here, we jumped at it.
We're staying in the Hilton Garden Inn Boise Spectrum two doors from a well regarded independent restaurant, the Goodwood Barbecue Company. And, as we walked over to the restaurant, we noticed the clean cars and the general tidiness.
Great food, friendly service, and reasonably priced - definitely worth a couple of flights and certainly worth that two-minute walk from the hotel!
Wednesday morning we fly BOI-SFO-SEA. Our new oven and flooring are both being delivered within the next few days as we move to the final stage of our kitchen renovation, and we'll try to pick up our passports, with new visas for India, as we drive by the Bellingham Fedex office. It's going to be a busy few days.
