At one time the world heard the name regularly because of an international firm named Boise Cascade.
Then, the company changed.
Or better yet, a beautifully confusing jewel...
As Jim Tucker recently posted: "I had a great time on a visit to Iowa for an Ohio State football game in 1983. One t-shirt I remember, University of Iowa, Idaho City, Ohio."
You get the idea...
Having lived in Boise just at 22 years, I think I understand.
The confusion actually helps us, possibly.
It keeps Boise, Idaho off the beaten path (Except for recent football seasons, it seems.)
There is a way of life here that compels people to civility.
Strangers still greet one another with tips of the hat and "good afternoons" as they stroll along the Greenbelt amid the many parks.
Citizens still attend outdoor events and are civil.
Culture comes and visits - plays, musicals and international visitors.
The Boise Airport introduces Sun Valley skiers to the capital city's beauty.
The city parks of Boise reflect the appealing nature of the city. (Below is my son Colin's Boy Scout Eagle Project from a few years back - it's still being used, I understand.)
Boise: 150 years old and new every morning.
Beautiful Boise, Idaho.
