Best Reason to Have Patience 

High Water on Idaho's Rivers

Editors' Picks

In Idaho, we've gotten so used to droughts, it feels like uncharted territory to be dealing with above-average spring runoff. But this year, after good snowpack and a really, really, really rainy spring, the state's rivers were overflowing. While it was good for irrigation, it kept rafter off the rivers. Even the Boise River through town didn't open until well into July. Still, given the increased risk of drowning that comes with high water, we're big fans of being patient. It's worth it.
