8/5&6/2023 - Boise (click here to leave comments)

On the way to Boise, we stopped at the Bruneau Sand Dunes State Park where we saw a several sand dunes in the middle of the Snake River valley. The biggest one was about a 1/4 mile long and around 250 feet high. There were three big dunes and a number of small ones around a couple of small lakes. They were created at a point where the flowing Lake Bonneville drainage had slowed and silt had built up around this point. The visitors center rented out "sand boards and sand skis" to slide down the sides of the dunes. It was pretty impressive to see. On Sunday, the 6th, Patty and I attended the church in Boise and enjoyed the fellowship with the saints there. We had attended a conference there a couple of years ago and we visited with some friends that we had met back then. Here's a picture of one of the Bruneau Sand Dunes.
