1000 Springs, Hagerman ID
From Boise we took off I-84 at Bliss, headed down in the valley of Hagerman/the Snake River via Hwy 30. Hagerman is about 1.5 hours southeast of Boise. I wasn't sure what to expect, and I missed my best opportunity to pull off the road and get a good picture of 1000 Springs. But it is worth seeing. There are other things to see in the area, as the videos above and below will show.

I've been in a wheelchair for 30+ years. It poses some challenges for traveling. Maybe others can benefit from my experiences.
