Climate-  Low valleys are hot in the summer and mild in the winters.  Most receive snow in the winter.  Higher mountain areas are hot and mostly dry in the summer and cold and wet in the winter.  Temperature variations are more constant in the valleys and higher mountains cool rapidly when the sun sets.  

Idaho (where the sun comes over the mountain), Boise (Gem State)

Idaho is a very diverse state with Desert Areas in the South East and West.  The Area in and around water has been converted to very rich farm land.  The central Idaho area is large rolling hills with often deep valleys.  East central Idaho is the Saw tooth Range of the Rockies.  Much of Idaho is highly mineralized and nearly every kind of Gem Stone is found here.  Central and northern Idaho is very beautiful and well worth a visit.

Fort Boise and Fort Hall were established in 1834.  Fort Boise was on the confluence of the Boise and Snake Rivers closer to the towns of  Parma, Roswell, and Fruitland than it is to Boise.  In 1855 Fort Boise was closed because of a massacre of 21 emigrants led by Alexander Ward.  Fort Hall was closed the next summer.
