Home on the Ourada Ranch
by Linda Funaiole
Located eight and a half miles above the former Simplot mansion in the Foothills above Boise, the Ourada Ranch consists of eight hundred acres of land, homesteaded in 1911, and an amazing view of the valley below. Safely in family hands for the next generation, it provides a view of what life was like on a working ranch throughout the last century, and what it can be throughout this one.

Tucked away on Highway 11, between the communities of Fraser and Pierce, just north of Highway 12 in north central Idaho, lies the community of Weippe. Notable for its role in the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the Nez Perce tribe, and Camas bulbs in bloom, Weippe treasures the legacy of its mining and logging past and looks straight into a very bright future.
Boise Ground Zero
by Dean Worbois
In its earliest days, Boise was built around the corner of 8th and Main, the heart of town. This was the site of its most prominent hotel, and, later, one of its most important buildings. Over the years of urban renewal nightmares and a revivified downtown, this corner has retained great symbolic importance, even as it remains idle and unoccupied.
