Things to do in Idaho

Old Idaho Penitentiary Idaho Penitentiary Boise, Idaho
The Old Idaho Penitentiary State Historic Site has been called the Idaho Territorial Prison, and was built in the territory of Idaho in 1870, east of Boise, Idaho. The territory wasn't quite ten years old when the new prison was constructed, and it started as a single cell house, then grew to include numerous distinctive structures surrounded by a high sandstone wall, that was quarried from nearby ridges by the convicts themselves, who would be included in all the construction for the prison. It is now run by the Idaho State Historical Society. During its 103 year operation span, the prison would get over 13,000 inmates, with a usual maximum population of 600. Two hundred and fifteen of those inmates were women, and there were two distinctive riots that happened in 1971, and 1973, about the living conditions that existed there. In December of 1973, obviously as a result of the riots, the penitentiary was closed down, and the 416 convicts that were still there, were moved to a modern facility just south of Boise. In 1992, the society recorded oral history conversations with 15 of the former prison guards that span the prison operations and occurrences since the 1950s to its closing. The site has been investigated by the Ghost Adventures TV series. In the same year that it closed down, it was added to the list of the National Register of Historical Places for its importance as a prison, and today houses museums and an arboretum. During the end of the millennium, in 1999, J. C. Earl gave all of his personal collections to the state and it ended up in the prison and is known as the J. C. Earl Exhibit at the Old Idaho Penitentiary. These artifacts range from the bronze age to the current period with the bronze collection dating back to 3500 BC.  The J. Curtis Earl Memorial Exhibit sits inside the multipurpose building that is located inside the prison and contains artifacts and weapons from the bronze age to the 15th and 16th century swords, as well as 500 year old firearms to the automatic weapons of today, describing the story of weaponry and their important relationship to the violent events of history. Another exhibit is the Marked Men-Tattoo History that can be found in the old barber shop inside the prison that tells about the history of tattooing and other art that has been created in the prisons all through the ages and world. The Transportation Exhibit showcases the history of transportation in the state, that includes wagons, a Basque sheepherder wagon, a hearse and the unusual Merci Train that was donated by the people of France after the first world war.

Idaho Historical Museum

The Idaho State Historical Museum is the biggest and favorite museum in the state, and was started in 1907, when the amount of artifacts and other items became to expansive and were moved into the first museum in the state to be accredited.

Extra concentration is put on the native peoples that these men encountered, with another outstanding display called Journey to the Gold Mountains: The Chinese in Idaho that describes the history of the Chinese that came across a huge ocean and then trekked across the mountains to get to the gold mines of Idaho, in hopes of gaining enough money to bring their relatives over, as well as make their fortunes. This exhibit describes the many hardships that these people endured, not only by being foreigners in a strange land, but that they were totally different than the other white settlers that came here from Europe and the eastern parts of the United States.

Boise Art MuseumBoise Art Museum Boise, Idaho
The Boise Art Museum (BAM) is the sole accredited art museum in the state of Idaho and opened in 1931 as the Boise Art Association when a large number of interested citizens got together to promote art in the city and state. They met to organized the association whose duties would be to obtain and preserve a proper gallery, with traveling exhibits and the promotion of fine art in the city. The first exhibition that was done was held at the Hotel Boise, where the group originally met. By 1937, the early goals were attained when a partnership that included the association, the city and the federal WPA was formed and the new Boise Gallery of Art was constructed in Julia Davis Park, that sat in the heart of the city's downtown area. The association, occupying some 3000 square feet and was managed by volunteers, inside the new art deco styled building that held two galleries and a small lobby and office. The gallery didn't attempt to collect any works at this stage, but rather showcased the local and regional artworks, as well as helping the community grow collectively. The association was incorporated in 1961 and became the Boise Gallery of Art, and during the mid 1960s, hired their first professional staff, which in turn started the ambitious project moving forward at a more impressive pace. Soon enough that became apparent as the gallery moved into a temporary facility in 1972, while they waited for the new 10,000 square foot additions were completed. This expansion made the galleries more roomy, installed a vault, studio space, lobby and gift shop; with room for the permanent collections, educational agendas, a docent program, display practices and the foundation for a more permanent and meaningful art museum. By 1986, the facility went through another expansion, which was completed in 1988, and renamed once more to the Boise Art Museum, focusing more so on their permanent collection developments, expanding their educational programs and improving their changing and traveling exhibits. Today, the permanent collection contains 2300 works that concentrate on the 20th century American art, with special emphasis on the artists of the Pacific northwest, ceramics and American realism. It does also include some non-Western and European artworks that complement the collection and help showcase its outstanding qualities. As they continue to gain more works of art, the museum has just acquired some really exciting and beautiful art from James Lavadour, part Walla Walla Indian that grew up on a reservation for the Umatilla tribe that is outside of Pendleton, Oregon and does spectacular landscapes, but only after he had walked the area that he plans on painting. This special and unusual technique has helped him to more fully understand the concepts that lay beneath the surface and magnify his resulting works so much so that he is an outstanding artist to be watched and enjoyed. Another is the works of Robert Colescott, who is one of the best artists that had lived and taught in the northwest. He was a Portland State University art professor, and the first African American artist that was chosen to create a solo exhibit at the 47th Venice Biennale in 1997. His works are provocative and colorful, almost a modern Dali, but more distinctive and certainly more African American in the sense of incorporating his heritage into his magnificent art. The last addition was the works of Pablo Picasso, who needs no introduction or explanation, his works have been world famous for many years and always in constant demand and certainly appreciated. These are just some of the new acquisitions that the museum strives to obtain and showcases the examples of art that they are searching for to add to their excellent collections.

Hells Canyon National Recreation Area Hells Canyon National Recreational Area Idaho
The Hells Canyon National Recreation Area can be found on the border of the states of Oregon and Idaho that was started in 1975 to protect the archaeological and historic value of the Hells Canyon area and the Snake River that lies between the Hells Canyon Dam and the Oregon-Washington border. About 215,000 acres of the recreation region is called the Hells Canyon Wilderness that contains about 900 miles of magnificent trails, with the biggest part located in the Wallowa County area of Oregon, with smaller areas found in the southwestern Idaho County, Idaho, northeastern Baker County in Oregon and the northwestern region of Adams County, Idaho. The entire recreational area contains 652,488 acres of the most spectacular sights in the nation, full of beauty, solitude and adventure that will surely blow your mind and certainly help you to realize what an incredible amount of landscaping and excitement this nation really has. We are more than fortunate to be able to visit many of these splendid regions, if only for hours, days or perhaps weeks, spread across a landmass that is as varied and diverse as the people that live in it. Hells Canyon is the nation's deepest river gorge that is located in the region's most remote and expansive landmass that is found in the United States. There are huge and dramatic changes in the landscape, with terrain, climates, elevations and vegetations that have created this outstanding area of beauty and excitement. The canyon was carved long ago by the huge Snake River, going almost a mile below the west rim of Oregon and 8000 feet below the famous snowcapped He Devil Peak of the state's Seven Devils Mountains. There aren't any roads that go across the canyon's wide 10 mile expanse, and there are merely three roads that head to the area of the Snake River between the Hells Canyon Dam and the Oregon-Washington border. Full of excitement at every turn in the bend, the area is full of animals and plants that will keep your camera full, with outstanding areas for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, camping, picnicking and the most fantastic place to take pictures, thousands and thousands, so be sure to bring that digital camera with more memory than you ever thought you would need or want.  The region is home to elk, mountain goats, cougars, bobcats, pika, bighorn sheep, bears, and deer that wander the huge contrasting landscape like ants at a picnic. The river is another venue altogether different in many ways, with smooth glassy areas that are changed in a moment with the best whitewater rafting anywhere. Stop for a few moments to catch your breath and sit serenely on a quiet bend in the river while you throw a line into the waters for any number of species of fish. It is a sportsmen paradise, an adventurer's dream or just the average American vacation away from the hustling and bustling cities that are loud, overpowering and usually unfriendly.

Standrod MansionStandrod Mansion Pocatello, Idaho
The Standrod Mansion is located in the historic downtown area of Pocatella, Idaho and was constructed in 1902, out of red and grey sandstone that had been quarried out of the McCammon region and houses 16 rooms. The house was constructed for Judge Drew Standrod, with beautiful golden oak parquet flooring, imported French marble for the fireplaces and mantels, glazed tiles and leaded glass windows. The house was occupied by the Standrod family until after WWII and the city was able to acquire it in 1974, and used for special events rentals until 1995. It then became the Backroom Furniture Store and then bed and breakfast; and is presently privately owned. It has been suggested that the house is haunted by the judge's daughter, who had died in the upper floor of the mansion and has been haunting the left corner tower and balcony. It was investigated by the Ghost Hunters from the television show of the same name. Many in the city believe it to be the best looking house in their neighborhood even though it might be haunted.  The house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

Shoshone Falls
Shoshone Falls, IdahoShoshone Falls, magnificently situated on the Snake River about five miles east of Twin Falls, Idaho is often referred to as the Niagara of the West, falling 212 feet into the basin below, is actually 36 feet higher than the real Niagara Falls. It flows across a rim that spans 900 feet and there is an excellent park that looks out over the beautiful sight, with the best views available in the spring since the summer months divert the river to handle the irrigation needs of the surrounding region. It is believed that the falls are between 2000 and 4000 years old, and is a complete barrier for the upstream migration of the river's fish inhabitants. The falls have been the upper limits of the sturgeons with spawns of salmon and steelhead unable to pass beyond them. The Yellowstone cutthroat trout have lived above the falls for as long as the rainbow trout live in similar circumstances in the area below the falls. Before the construction of numerous dams on the Snake River below the falls, there had been huge runs of salmon in the Snake; with the salmon based at the bottom of the falls becoming a significant source of food for the Shoshone and Bannock Indians. It has been said that during the springtime run of fish, in 1843, you could throw a spear into the water without taking any specific aim and certainly strike a fish. It is strange but true that only 35% of the fish species in the upper river region are the same as the lower Snake and Columbia Rivers. There are 14 species of fish that can be found in the upper Snake that can also be found in the Bonneville freshwater ecoregion, but not in the lower Snake or Columbia rivers. Along the upper parts of the Snake, there is a high amount of freshwater mollusk endemisms like clams and snails.

Sawtooth National Park
Sawtooth National Park Idaho
The Sawtooth National Forest is located partly in Idaho, 96%, and partly in Utah, 4%; and was protected by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1905 as the Sawtooth Forest Reserve, containing more than 2 million acres of some of the most remote and unpopulated regions in the lower 48 states. There are more than 1000 lakes and 3000 miles of streams and rivers, with the Sawtooth National Recreation Area of the forest being located in the heart of the state of Idaho.  Sawtooth Wilderness is just one area of the massive park, with just 217,000 acres that are enjoyed and experienced by people from all over the United States. Idaho is called the gem state, but this magnificent area is called the crown jewel because of the vast amounts of resources and recreational activities that can be found and enjoyed as well. It was first protected by an act of Congress in 1937 as a primitive area and then officially created by Congress in 1972. The region is full of natural beauty and contrasting highlights that will keep visitors breathless, and camera shocked as the many magnificent images come into view and soon enough disappear around a bend or over a mountain, down into a valley or along any of the incredible streams or rivers that can be found over the entire area. There are hundreds of jagged peaks, with 50 that are more than 10,000 feet high and 400 alpine lakes full of fish and fish tales that will be spoken by men and women over campfires and kitchen tables for generations to come. And that is just in the Wilderness area alone. It has 350 miles of trails that will take you through the most adventurous landscape in the west, and the most colorful flowers in the world can be viewed in the alpine meadows that feed many of the wild creatures that live here, in the usually quiet solitude of a huge forest park that will keep people coming back for more every year. The area contains some of the best recreational, scientific, scenic, historic, educational and conservational regions in the United States and should be visited at least one time before you pass on.
