#coxesoutwest2015: Idaho

One of Dan’s closest friends lives in Idaho, and we had never been! Having relocated from Orange County California to Boise, we wanted to check in on him and see how life was in such a different place than where he was originally from. We made our way to Boise and settled in for a few days of fun with James. As you can see in the coming photos, both of them were super happy to see each other. #adorbs

We went on a really long drive one of the days we were there to see a glimpse of the Sawtooths. It takes a really long time to drive to them so it was a nature sightseeing adventure. Idaho is like heaven on earth for preppers, hunters, kayakers, hikers and people who want a slower pace of life. I completely understand the appeal. Every corner we drove around was more majestic views and miles and miles of wilderness. Dan is already planning a return trip for a manly hunting trip. (I’ll plan a girls trip to Palm Springs…)

One of the days we were in Idado was my Birthday! Dan and I spent the day together at one of the top tourist destinations on trip advisor for the area: The Old Idaho Penitentiary! I’d definitely recommend it, as weird as that sounds. Dan had the local grocery store make me a cake and I thought it was so sweet that he went out of his way to make my birthday special even though we were not at home. <3 My new Kendra Scott earrings didnt hurt either.

Idaho takeaways:

  • Idaho is BIG! We barely saw the place and we spent a lot of time checking it out.
  • Old friends are the greatest.
  • There are still places in Idaho that look like an old western movie. People live there and are still kinda wild west themselves! We got to one town, got out of our car, felt REALLY unwelcome, and left. Crazy right?
  • The potato thing is no joke.
