The Long Winter Is Over - Hello Spring

The Long Winter is Over - Spring is Here!

Winter sports enthusiasts rejoiced this year, as we had record snowfall in the mountains of Idaho. For those people that aren't big fans of the wet white stuff, Spring has finally arrived which means Summer is not too far behind.

Spring can be a bit wet, but that there are still activities that you can participate in that keep you inside. How about a museum trip?
