Spring is coming slowly to southeast Idaho. After a warm and dry March and early April, the weather has turned cool and rainy.
I took this photo today on CRP land in lonely Arbon Valley. Those are the Deep Creek Mountains.
Several of the big valleys of southern Idaho have more CRP (conservation reserve program) land than just about anywhere else in the United States. As you can see, sagebrush is invading the former wheat field. That is a happy sight to see.
As a sidenote: Arbon Valley suffered severely during the Dust Bowl days of the 1930s.
