I always knew you were out-standing in your field. Now we have proof! Nice ones John. — Bob
The treasure valley is quite featureless in real life. If your driving I-84 anywhere in the valley it's going to be mostly farmland. It's not until you get north of I-84 that the scenery gets a bit more interesting. With that said, Boise is a beautiful city that sits on the foothills of the rockies. I had a real life flight from Minneapolis to Boise, and we flew over the rockies, then essentially did a loop around the entire city, then landed on RWY 10L. It was fabulous.
Great shots of "Potato Country" John,there are some huge agro outfits up in that area and I've picked up loads at a lot of them back when I hauled produce!
Very nice texture and so great country in Idaho for flying. (thumb up)

Kinda like West Texas, John. You have to have to look to get a true appreciation of what you are seeing.
I like these. Think I may go try this flight; even though I'm not an Orbx user.
Always love to see your flights.
