Another cloudy, dark day in Boise. This is a shot of the west edge of the Boise Foothills. We'll be going up to the central and east side today. The homes on the ridge are big - at least 3,000 square feet and up. The scrub and grass hillsides match up with what the desert south of town looks like. Unless a tree is deliberately planted, it doesn't grow naturally in these areas. Cloud cover obscures the mountains beyond, normally, you can see the "tree line" - where mostly evergreens grow.
