The Last of My Photo Sunday

The sky was starting to overcast, it was getting late...


East of Boise, this is overlooking the Lucky Peak State Park and onto the Boise River to the west, shooting into the light from above the dam. Colors are washed out, but you can see the terrain. I've never seen the river so low before.

The sun is starting to set here, above the dam. Below the dam is Lucky Peak State Park. We drove across the dam to get here. Again, the water level is so low, the lowest I've ever seen. We're praying for lots of snow in the mountains north of Boise to fill our dams and rivers this summer.


Turning to the east, looking staight out, (the dam is just to the left here), this is Lucky Peak Reservoir. You can see where the water level normally is. It's shocking to see it so low. During summer months, the waters are filled with sail boats, jet skiers, fishing boats, and water skiers.

On the way home, the sky became incredibly purplish orange. By the time we could safely pull over to get a shot, this is what was left. Sunsets in Idaho are so amazing! I need to practice and take lots more sunset photos.

And for my final shot of My Photo Sunday shots, another picture of Bogus Basin. The sun had set by now but the sky was still light. If you look closely, you will see the lights of Bogus Basin's famous night skiing lights. You can also see the lights of vehicles traveling down the mountain. I hope you enjoyed My Photo Sunday. I plan to do more and more photo shooting and sharing the photographs here.

A furbaby update: Peanut has totally caught up to Rodney in weight and size! Both boys went to the doctor tonight after work to get their final vaccinations. They weighed in at 3 lbs. 8 ozs. each! The doc said we can stop the Prednisone drops Peanut has been taking since he was 6 weeks old. We had gotten the dose down to 0.03 ml every fourth day. The boys are pretty much potty trained, and walking on leases like big boys. I'm so proud!
