13 Pictures Taken in or near Buhl, Idaho

Edition 13

Last weekend I went to Buhl, Idaho to visit my sister and to see one of my doctors. While I was there, I took a lot of pictures. Today you get to see 13 of the pictures I took in or near Buhl.

1.

Buhl, Idaho – The “Trout Capital of America”

2.

This mural is a work-in-progress being installed on one of the historic buildings in “downtown” Buhl (population approximately 4,000).

3 & 4.

My sister’s cat, Spanky, having a bit of a nap on the back of the chair.

5, 6, & 7.

These shots are of a golf course in the Snake River Canyon just outside Buhl.

8.

If you turn and face the other way, this is the view you get of the canyon wall.

9.

There is some new growth, showing green, among the old.

10.

This sign points the way to the golf course and to a trout farm further down the canyon. Next time I make the trip I’m planning to visit the trout farm. I’ll bring back some pictures to share.

11.

This is the Clear Lakes grade which climbs out of the canyon and deposits the traveler in Jerome County.

12 & 13.

Jerome County wheat fields. The “posts” in the middle of the field are the “solid sets” that support the shotgun sprinkler heads. To see one of these big gun sprinklers in action, go here.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little tour of Buhl and it’s environs. I have lots more pictures taken in the Twin Falls area to share with you over the next week or so.

Check out other Thursday Thirteeners here.  This is the first week of “themed” posting.  I, for one, totally spaced off the whole theme thing, but I’m sure there are others who did not.  This week’s theme “thirteen places you’ve visited that you’d recommend.”  I’ve given you just one. 😀
