And it looks haunted in real life.

Smoke Source

A forest fire in Oregon that we drove by yesterday. Fires from all around the West have been sending smoke to Boise.

Free music at the Boise Center on the Grove every Wednesday during the summer, and a little bit into autumn. It's called "Alive After Five."

Smoky Skies. Again.

The strange-looking sun this morning. Stinky air, too. I don't want autumn to descend too fast, but hard frosts and rain would be helpful to get all the fires under control.

That's a lot of Wires

My kiddo thought this looked like a monster with two arms coming up from the ground. Big electrical project near a substation. [BTW, A Boise Daily Photo 'extra' is posted every day at]

Butterfly Still Missing

This bronze sculpture is called "Taking Flight." It's installed outside the Women's and Children's Alliance in Downtown Boise. There used to be a stained glass butterfly in the woman's hand, but it was stolen earlier this year, then returned, then stolen again. Someone has placed a red feather in her hand. I've also seen pinwheels and flowers. It would be nice to see the butterfly again.

Newest Little Free Library

Take a book. Leave a book. Boise is home to several of these library branches. For this one, an 8-year-old is the library manager.

This wild-ish area and nature trails are behind the Idaho Shakespeare Festival Theatre. We took a stroll before the show last night.

Ring in the Weekend

I wonder if there is a "bell inventory" for Boise? Along with more info. All I know here is what's on the plaque.
