These are the latest of 8 Super Volcanos that exploded with whole earth impact over the last 14 million years. The one on the far right is where Yellowstone Park now is. It blew only 600,000 years ago. The middle one blew 400,000 years before that, and our lake house sits on the shore of the lake near the upper part of the caldera.
Here are some pictures along the way to Boise two weekends ago. I drove on dirt roads turning left out of the gate from the Centennial Shores gate. Followed the Centennial range all the way to Boise and learned about the caldera explosions that formed the snake river valley.
Doug, Jayme and Leslie have been up at the cabin with their cousin Brett building retaining walls for the driveway and along the lake. It is looking great. It did get a little cold and snowy near the end of the two weeks.
