I’m on a quick visit to Boise, Idaho. It’s my first visit to a place that, according to a big signs at the airport, bills itself as the “City of Trees.” The airport signs also make it clear that Idahoans are proud of their beef and their potatoes — so I savored some of each at dinner.
Although I didn’t notice anything remarkable about the trees of Boise, I did think the state capitol building, pictured above, was pretty cool, and I was really struck by what you see in the distance behind the capitol — i.e., cloudless blue sky. Boise gets sunshine at least part of the day for a ridiculously large percentage of the year. We could us some of that during our Columbus winters.
