Explore and Ride St. Anthony Sand Dunes in Idaho
Located far from any ocean, the BLM-managed St. Anthony Sand Dunes appears as a rolling sea of sand on the eastern edge of Idaho’s volcanic Snake River Plain. These vast dunes are the largest in Idaho. They blanket an area approximately 35 miles long and 5 wide, and range from 50 to 500 feet high. These white quartz sand dunes are a unique and popular recreational playground for off-highway vehicle enthusiasts, hikers and equestrians. Picnicking, snowmobiling, wildlife viewing and camping opportunities are also available here. The area features Deadhorse Bowl, a popular OHV sand bowl one-mile in circumference and 400 feet deep, located in the western section of the dune complex.

We went camping on the Middle Fork of the Boise River this weekend. It was a little hot, but still gorgeous. I didn’t take very many pictures at all, but did manage to get a few of this awesome dragonfly.

Chief Joseph of the Nez Perćes, “Thunder-Coming-From-The-Water-Up-Over-The-Land,” had had a Roman dignity, even in defeat. Greatest and noblest if Indian warriors, he had fought a magnificent Fabian campaign in 1877, surrendering only in the face of odds if twenty to one. | ‘Picture Maker of the Old West - William H.
