Freemont County, ID
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, I’m one of the 1,584,985 lucky people who get to call Idaho home. From the high desert of the southwest to the rolling meadows of the Palouse to the rugged mountains which created Lewis & Clark’s greatest challenges, for me Idaho’s landscape is more diverse and beautiful than anywhere else I’ve been in the US.
I took this photograph near Teton Dam this spring in between Fremont and Madison counties. Pam had always wanted to see the remains of the dam that breached in 1976, killing 13,000 head of cattle and flooding the entire city of Rexburg and we took a detour on the way back from spring break in Wyoming to see it. Of course, I made the trip longer by yelling out “stop!” to her every once in a while so I could capture something like this.
