I'm in between Terri and Rick (much closer to Rick) and have lived here for some 40+ years and have worked and played all over the state. I'll add my 2 cents and pictures when I get back home in a day or 2. Always room here for more photographers!
As promised, almost 2 years ago, my 2 cents, with interest!

1 Fall on the Palouse, south of Moscow.

5. Much of the NW, certainly the inland NW, is now a 5 season region. The smoke season now reliably overlaps late summer and early fall. UGH! The Palouse is in the driest spring on record, and the lack of rain is being compounded by way above average winds that dry the young crops, and frosts that zap emerging shoots.

Idaho looks like a really beautiful state and I can see why you guys who live there love it! :). For me the cold, snowy winters would be a bit off-putting but, oh, the rest of the year would be wonderful for exploring the vast and extraordinary natural wonders which abound there! A photographer's paradise......and a Mecca for all who enjoy the many outdoor activities available there!

couple of Idaho photos, Bruneau sand dunes located a little southeast of Boise and City of Rocks, just a bit north of the Utah border in south eastern Idaho. I like both these areas. We’ve lived in Sandpoint for 22 years, had a place at Priest Lake 10 years prior to relocating to Sandpoint I’d use for sabbaticals. I wanted a place without internet or cell service and Priest Lake had neither until the late 1990’s. We like Idaho, haven’t found anywhere better yet. It’s got it’s share of oddities, but overall the good greatly outweighs the bad.

Rick, #1 is stunning, my favorite.

About cellphone - I still have none.
Cellphones reminds me of the old tamagochi - you have to feed them, you have to pet them and sometimes they make s##t.

Kind regards
Klaus

Geez, Nick! These - and the ones in your 2nd set - are Board of Tourism worthy. Beautiful and evocative - well done.

Superb, Rick. You, Terri, and Nick paint excellent views of your state.
