    Boise article on NG Adventure

    Did y'all catch this article in National Geographic Adventure magazine?

    http://www.nationalgeographic.com/ad...ise/idaho.html

    A few pages about how Boise is the hot new place to live for adventure types. I thought it was interesting that they featured Sweet Connie (which I think is supposed to see limited use) and The Garage (which has been closed for what, 6 months?)

    fair enough....

    i do like the line that says "There is sprawl, but most of it has been confined to the outskirts"

    isn't that what sprawl is?

    development moving away from the center of city/town, etc?

    did that article mention 105 degree days?

    There are some air quality problems but they're confined to PM 2.5, PM 10, and Ozone.

    There are a lot of chain stores but they are limited to the big box stores such as Walmart, Staples, and Home Depot.

    There are really hot days but they are limited to the summer months and generally only fall between 90 and 110 degrees.

    There is traffic congestion but is generally limited to the streets.
