City Deer

This photo is one my sister took the other day downtown in front of the old Assay Office on Main St.  She said there may have been about a dozen deer.   They must know there is no hunting in town.

Wet Snow

Had a wet snow last night it was warm enough that it mostly melted on the streets and walks but cold enough to cover trees and the cars.  Table Rock in back ground.

The High Bridge

  ca. 1953.   Mores Creek Bridge.   Back to photo archives.  
This is also know as the High Bridge on the way to Idaho City.  
  Which is the correct spelling of the name Mores Creek or Moores Creek.  I think it is Moore's  as in C.W. Moore (Christopher Wilkinson Moore 1835-1916) founder of Idaho first National Bank.

Chippy

Squirrels are busy now with their food.  They find a nut and hid it the lawn and some other squirrel finds it digs up the nut and moves it to a new location and so on.

NightLight

I went out last night to see if i was able to see the northern lights.  I did not see them I think we are too far south and have too much light pollution from town.   Not being able to the northern lights I took this shot of the lights of Boise as I was coming back home.
