iWARRIORWALK USA TOUR – STOP #10
WALKED ON AUGUST 27, 2010
On Friday, August 27, 2010, I (Stanley Bronstein) walked for 5 hours along the Snake River trail system and the surrounding downtown area in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
On Saturday, August 28, 2010, I passed through the western portion of Idaho, including Boise, on my way to Stop #12 – Ontario, Oregon. There are a few lovely pictures of the mountainous area of Oregon that can be found at the end of the pictures shown below.
The Idaho leg of the tour went well:
- It was peaceful and relaxing.
- I found 7 cents (total) on the ground in 2 separate places.
- I was interviewed by KIDK TV – Eyewitness News – Channel 3 in Idaho Falls (see the video immediately below).

Here are 5 fast facts about the state of Idaho:
