The View - Headed Dowtown

This is the view straight north on Vista Avenue - which runs straight into the State Capitol. Boise downtown "proper" can't be seen from a distance beyond this because it's in a hole. The landscape steps up from this level, and each step up is called a "bench." One area of the city is called the "Boise Bench," and there are three benches you notice when driving away from downtown.


  1. I love all of the tress. Your city looks pretty. The only think I really knew about it before your blog was blue football turf.

  2. All I can say : Wow...
    I wish I was standing where the photograph was taken...
    Too good.

  3. I love the setting with the hills in the background. I have only lived in flat places where the highway overpass was the highest spot in town.

  4. This is a very nice shot showing the view and the landscape in the distance. btw I like your new header.

  5. This has long been one of my favorite views of Boise.
    (btw: that is "Capitol Blvd" and it's looking North-East)


Thanks for stopping by!
