This picture is close to the eastern edge of the Boise Foothills. This plateau is called Table Rock. The cross is lighted at night. The cross has caused controversy in past years. Until I drove out this way yesterday, I hadn't realized such a forest of antennas had joined the cross. Native Americans consider the site to be sacred. It's an official reserve because of the native plants tucked into the rocks and on the hillsides - plants that no longer live along most of the foothills. There are several hiking trails up to, and around, the plateau - and the nearby Castle Rock. Evidence of the old quarry can be seen along several of the trails. Much of the sandstone seen in older buildings around town came from the quarry.
