Get out of town and the inversion

If you get a chance to get out of the Treasure Valley, do it. Get out of the inversion.

I did a photo shoot up at Lake Cascade State Park today and it was wonderful to be in the sun.

High elevations are the place to be.

The cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling and just hanging out in the sun at Lake Cascade State Park was a wonderful winter tonic needed to break the spell of the Treasure Valley's inversions.

We'll have a story on Lake Cascade State Park in winter in Feb. 7's Idaho Outdoors.

Everything was melting today. Mushy streets by day...

bumpy ice by night.

People are broad-minded. They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater and even a newspaperman, but if a man doesn't drive, there's something wrong with him.

It's NICE here!
