I am so gratified to see that our Idaho delegation has joined forces in supporting the newest version of the Boulder-White Clouds Wilderness bill. I hope that our governor will get on board as well.
It is crucial that we express our appreciation to Sens. Crapo and Risch, as well as to Reps. Simpson and Minnick. In the 44 years that I have spent in Idaho, I have backpacked into the Boulder-White Clouds many times, and I know how important it is to preserve this stunningly beautiful landscape for our grandchildren. I'm hopeful that this time we will succeed in passing the enabling legislation.
