With temperatures in the mid-90′s under crystal clear blue skies, the cold waters of the South Fork of the Boise River drew plenty of float-boat fly fishers looking for some big fat trout.

Tuesday July 9th, 2013 was quite a beautiful day to be out in Elmore County. We wish you were here so if you have a spare few days of vacation, explore the Discover Elmore County website. After seeing and believing what we have in our little piece of Idaho paradise, you’ll need to come for a visit.

This article was written by Tim Bondy during the summer of 2012 but is still valid, true and pertinent.
Mountain Home, Idaho is a sleepy little town of a little over 14,000 people but does host a rather nice farmers market. Held in the downtown Railroad Park along a 330 feet section of sidewalk, vendors sell everything from fruits and veggies to custom jewelry. There appears to be a big appetite for Asian food in this area as there were no less than 4 different vendors offering ready to eat goodies.
Just a Couple of the Unique Sellers at the Market
- Sandra Krause from Gourmet Gold Dust was selling her home-made garlic salt. As a huge fan of garlic salt I recommend this stuff to anyone. For more information contact:
Gourmet Gold Dust LLC
4327 N Pine Featherville RD
Featherville, ID 83647
- Shirley Howard and her husband hail from the nearby town of Glenns Ferry, Idaho. This couple had a nice display of unique hand crafted jewelry that included genuine Idaho potato creations. This is true unique Idaho. More information can be discovered by calling them at 208-880-1881.
There is also a rather large community yard sale held in conjunction with this farmers market each week. You’re sure to find something you could use around the house, camp or as a gift.

4 July 2013
(Friday July 13th, 2012) The Mountain Home Arts Council hosted their first “Summer Concert in the Park” event featuring the Brian Bateman Blend Band. Being Friday the 13th, I was a little concerned about attending but I’m glad I did. Look for the link for the video I took.

A Little Ditty About It
The concert was held in the usual spot at Carl Miller Park right off American Legion Blvd. We got lucky there was a break in the weather as the days leading up to this event were extremely hot and smoky. And Friday afternoon gave us a light refreshing off and on rain that kept temperatures in the “great for a concert range”.
The Brian Bateman Blend Band played some very good music. It was a little harder rock music than I’ve come to expect from these “Concerts in the Park” and for me that’s a good thing. The eclectic crowd of about 300 or so folks seemed to really enjoy the music.
About the only thing I was disappointed about was the “local business booths”. Usually a bunch of local businesses set up shop in the back part of the park offering food, drinks and cool and unusual local products. Instead only 2 businesses showed up…Common Ground and the Snowcone People.
Hear More, See More and Support Them
The Brian Bateman Blend played their heart out for us. I don’t think they got paid for this so if would like to “give back” consider buying some music from them. Find out more about this band and how to get your very own copy of at:
Next Concert is Soon
If you are going to be in Mountain Home, Idaho on Friday July 27th, 2012 then stop on by Carl Miller Park at 6:30 PM to see the Sweetgrass Sisters perform. Bring a blanket, lawn chair and/or a picnic dinner. There can be far worse ways to spend a Friday evening in Idaho.
