This is a short and scenic drive outside Boise. Pretty resivor with mountains all around. You will see a lot of boating activity on good summer days. Wonder what would happen if it broke?

A great example of what dedicated city planners can do with a reservoir and dam. A beautiful park with lots of picnic areas, shady trees and even a sandy beach!

We went for a drive on a gorgeous Saturday and ended up in the area. The dam itself is nothing special, but the surrounding nearby countryside is one of the prettiest areas we have ever seen.

It's NOT Lucky Peak. That means little parking, one-lane gravel/dirt roads frequently driven by half-drunk lunatics with boat trailers, and primitive areas.

A quick escape from Boise. On a weekday in the summer few people are up there and you have the place to yourself. A kayak does just fine. When the water levels go down you get lots of interesting features exposed.

Not far from the east end of Boise, this dam is easily reached in 20 minutes. Lovely desert environment and a great place for photographers.
