I haven't been to the mountains in a while, and I've been wanting to go. More so now with the pics.

How many lines were there on the zip tour? I've done that twice in Mexico and Massachusetts, and wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

 

Hawk's Nest has two courses... we did the lower one and it had 12 lines.

 

Afterwards, we all wanted to do the higher one too, but at $75 per person it was a bit too steep.

I paid 90 for 14 lines when in Mass.  It was the same in Puerto Vallarta for 12 lines.  A place down the road wants that same amount to go off platforms across flat land which doesn't sound fun.  Flying down the mountain is part of the fun.

Somehow I let my work convince me that I needed to take a trip to the mountains today.....the mountains of IDAHO !!!!!

 

Who the H*ll gets stuck going to Idaho for work? Me that's who......going to be a looooong week for this city boy but I must say it is rather nice out here scenery wise. When it is 90 degrees and it only feels like 75, that makes it a bit more enjoyable as well.

I read this as "Biscuit Mountain" adventure.  I thought it was a new theme park.

 

Color me disappointed man.  I was wanting pics of the biscuits and gravy flume ride.

Maybe you should start that up instead of teaching... Sounds like a money maker.

The Idaho panhandle is awesome in the winter. Snow covered pines as far as the eye can see. Beautiful country.

he seems to compose pretty well. to me once you get past a few technical points, photography is more of an art than anything else, so one person's blemish is another person's deliberate inclusion, differentiating styles and intention. there is a fine line between background material as context and background clutter. i think that's the biggest thing i had to learn, how to eliminate the one and capture the other. definitely great work overall.
