A View from the Dump

A few days ago, I had to go to the Ada County Landfill to properly dispose of some hazardous waste. Every Friday and Saturday from 8:00AM- 5:00PM, you can drive up to the landfill and they will dispose of your hazardous waste (old TV's, computer monitors, paint, oil, car batteries, liquid propane tanks, etc.) The view from up there was incredible, so I thought I would share a few of the photos.

Here's a view of the road leading up to the landfill

Here's a view looking out over the valley. You can notice the smoke from the fires that are burning around our area. Most notably, the Beaver Creek Fire (by Sun Valley)

Just between the power poles, you can barely see downtown Boise. Although it is very smoky in this picture, it was much worse the day before.

  1. Looks like some good hiking territory. I'd love to visit Idaho.

    1. There's a lot of great places to hike around here. During the summer, we've even gone up to the ski resort (Bogus Basin, located about 20 miles from Boise) and hiked on the ski trails.
