The trip started off with a flight from Atlanta to Boise on Southwest Airlines. Sadly, due to unforeseen circumstances we got to the gate just as the plane was pulling away. That is something nobody wants to see but I was a little surprised at how badly some of the travelers acted about it. It’s 2015, we all know that you’re supposed to be at the gate way early. We messed up, not Southwest. To be honest, they did a great job of switching things around and getting us on different flights so we made it there and only one hour behind schedule. They gave us great customer service.
The mountains were beautiful, tall and majestic covered in Douglas Fir and Lodgepole pine trees. The elevation of these mountains is about 5,000 feet and they are quite steep leading down to the Middle Fork Payette River. They are something to be experienced since capturing them on a camera never seems to do a mountain justice.

The trip was too short and the flight too long but it was made better by the good humor of the flight attendants including one who sang to us. That was really fun.
