Northwest Travel & Life Magazine: Buried Treasure in Southern Idaho

30 01 2022

“There’s a ton of buried treasure in Southern Idaho, but not the kind you might think. From the road or on foot, the Hagerman and Twin Falls areas look like, well, a mostly flat and semi-arid landscape. But don’t be fooled. In addition to the renowned Snake River Canyon and Shoshone Falls, Southern Idaho’s “Magic Valley” is home to a number of deep, fertile gorges and smaller spring-fed box canyons that, due to the region’s relatively flat topography, are all but imperceptible to the eye until you’re just feet away from them. But if you know where they are and how to access them, their rewards are many. With that in mind, here’s a primer to help you seek out Southern Idaho’s buried treasures.” Click here to read the full story.

Northwest Travel & Life Magazine: Old Highway 99 Road Trip

11 01 2022

Up until the completion of Interstate 5, Route 99 was the main north-south highway running the length of America’s west coast, from Mexico to Canada. In the Northwest, much of that old route still exists. And while it might not be as efficient with regard to driving time as I-5, its winding path through Oregon wine country from Portland to Eugene showcases the best the Willamette Valley has to offer – and makes for a spectacular road trip! Let me tell you about it here.
