“Garden Valley is very near the newly designated Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve. Far enough from Boise, the valley is not affected by the glow of a city. This wide valley provides a phenomenal view of the night sky in all directions, and with dozens of access points to public lands, it is easy to find a secluded spot for star-gazing. While there are many good places to camp/set up a chair/telescope (Hot Springs Campground, Station Creek TH, Peace Creek, etc), Weilmunster Park in Crouch is one of the most easily accessible. In 2017, we were lucky to be in the path of totality for the solar eclipse–it was breathtaking.”
