Home for the Holiday - Number Hill (Arco, Idaho)

One of my favorite sights on the drive home from Idaho to Montana is Number Hill in Arco, Idaho.  Arco's claim to fame is that it was the first community in the world to get its electricity from nuclear power (on July 17, 1955).  This fact is proudly announced on Recreation Hall on Main Street, on a marquee style sign.  Number Hill is the result of a tradition of Butte County High School painting the year of each graduation class on the hill, since 1920.  It's quite unique and striking, and this is the first time I've stopped to get a photo of it.  I love all of these small towns in Idaho and Montana - they're so proud of their accomplishments and traditions.

Home for the Holiday - Mountain Sunset

I love driving home for Thanksgiving.  It's just beautiful.  I'm so blessed to live here in the Northwest in the midst of the Rocky Mountains.  This photo was taken on Highway 33 near Arco, Idaho.  Stay tuned for more photos of our trip!  I took the photo from the passenger seat, through the windshield.  Glad we got that crack fixed!  Other than being a little blurred, it turned out pretty good!

Vineyard Boise Holiday Sale!

Wow, it's been way too long since I've posted an entry here! I've been crazy-busy getting ready for the Vineyard Boise Holiday Sale, which will be held next Saturday, November 14th. I'll have photography, christmas cards, and calendars for sale. Stay tuned - I am debuting my product line in my etsy shop this week, and you'll be able to order everything that I am selling at the craft show there too! I'll post a link in a few days.

The craft show is the same day as the Boise State-Idaho game, but don't worry - the church will be airing the game at the craft show so you won't miss out! There will be a food court and a raffle going on all day; you could win items from vendors featured at the show! I would LOVE to see you there!
