In case you missed it...from South of Boise:
Airborne................The pictures are great. They and the location made me remember desert training south of Boise years ago. We were so far away from lights that I could not see the ground on the way down or my hands in front of my face. I always preferred to ride my equipment down (was supposed to drop it or face a Article 15) but that night I dropped it with a 12-15 foot rope so I would know when I would hit the ground.
One night laying in my sleeping bag, there was the most awesome display of shooting stars I've ever seen. Also the water in the irrigation canal had to be the coldest I've ever been in and the Snake River water was plenty cold also.
