We stopped out here on our way back from Marsing to Boise- beautiful views! Take a short walk on the trail from the parking spot to the edge of the canyon. Ireland or Idaho?!

The giant birds were nesting and were flying and soaring all over the place; so incredible. Loved how clean and not polluted the whole area is. Thanks to all who don't litter.
