From 91 Days in Idaho
Famous for its potatoes and little else, beautiful Idaho in the Pacific Northwest is easily one of the USA’s most under-appreciated states. Amazingly varied, from the fields of the south to the mountain ranges of the north, with some America’s most bizarre and remote nature. Lava fields? The continent’s largest sand dune?!

We visited during the autumn and were blown away by the beauty of the drive….

The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic
“Which one is it going to be?” I whispered to Jürgen after the pilots had finished up their morning briefing and were beginning to mingle with the passengers. “Hopefully that guy with the handlebar moustache!” As luck would have it, it was. The awesome dude with the handlebar moustache had seen his name on the placard we were holding, and approached us. “Quinn”, he said, putting his hand out. “Eric Quinn”….
