The Seedier Side of Boise

IMG_1598

My trip to Boise involved walking through an old prison by myself and being a bit freaked, lots of wine, learning about some new birds of prey and exploring a city that was just very different from my own.

The prison I went to was the Old Idaho State Penitentiary. You may have seen this place on the ghost show, Ghost Adventures. It was freaky on its own right. I didn’t need a TV show, which I have seen, tell me that.

I also took a little trip out to Idaho City, a sort of ghost town. It once had a population of about 25,000 but now only about 475 live there.

At Idaho City, I went to the Pioneer Cemetery. While there are old cemeteries here Boston, there is nothing like this.

This was just sad.

Tomorrow birds, wine and some things that totally surprised me about the places I visited.
