The snowcapped Lost River Range...

in central Idaho provided a photogenic backdrop during my long drive today.  The closure of I-15 at the Montana border due to icy conditions and gusty winds diverted me to a slower, but highly scenic, alternative route north (click to enlarge):
Borah Peak, the highest summit in Idaho at 12,668 ft, lies ensconced in this range in the distance.  It is also the location of a large earthquake in 1983.  While I've not yet climbed this lofty peak, it is on my "to do" list.  Perhaps next summer.
