Eagle Greenbelt Stroll

Meridian, Idaho

We live about two blocks west of the Boise city limits and a couple of blocks south of the Eagle city limits. So we are literally minutes from what all three cities (Boise, Eagle, and Meridian) offer.

One of the best things about the Treasure Valley is the Greenbelt. It runs for miles along the Boise River.

This morning Sophie and I took a stroll along the Greenbelt in Eagle. It was a beautiful morning and the walk was so very nice. We started out in a park…

Part of the walk was along wetlands that are lush with greenery…

0620151047aI was all excited thinking they were trout, but then a man walked by me staring at them and said one word to set me straight, “Carp.” 🙂

One of the houses along the river has the most beautiful cascading petunias I have ever seen…

I’m a sucker for bridges and can’t pass them up without taking a picture or two…
