Bruneau Dunes State Park - Idaho
Another very important place in the state in terms of natural beauty is the park that has the highest dunes in the United States.
Bruneau Dunes State Park contains North America's tallest single structured sand dune. It stands 470 feet high.

The videos have been disabled by the owner to run on other websites or forums, but the images are magnificent about this park.
So I believe it may be of interest to the IDAHO map if it is of interest to SCS Software.[youtube][/youtube]



This magnificent place in my opinion is only parallel in the Americas so, I know with the so-called; "Lençóis Maranhenses" in Brazil, which is also a great formation of dunes.
I don't know if they are bigger or smaller, but it also reminds me a lot of these dunes. I recommend Americans to know more IDAHO is interesting
The park has an astronomical observatory. Interesting!
Some scenes of sunset in the dunes:

Another video with sunset in the park.

Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls Idaho.

Some events on the Perrine Bridge:
  Among the most common events are:
- Kayak rides on the river. Snake.

- Parachute jumps from the base of the bridge.
This video presents several techniques of skydiving on bridges.
It is a very useful video to make simulations of events in the smallest detail where only the most attentive players maybe,
if this simulation is done can find out what technique they are or even practitioners of this sport, maybe the techniques can be identified.
The video above shows the highs of 2019.
  What catches my attention is the sunset at the time 11:28 - 12:00 on the bridge. Really beautiful!
Other scene Sunset 12:48-13:13 Fantastic! You need to see this and put it in the game!
Rare events are:
- Truck accidents.

Sunset Bridge.

Good Morning!
  Today's search tip is about route 51-ID, and some attractions that exist on this route that allows you to access ELK -NEVADA.
and is within a blm managed wildlife area.
  It has some very interesting and even historical attractions.
  So; perhaps it will allow the state map to occupy the Southwest portion with a scenic route, through the great desert of the state IDAHO, making the environmental transition with Nevada.
A scenic route that has some really cool quirks shown below:

There were two bison statues in the old Casino, as I realized from the survey. Input.

The image of the accident is very impactful this occurred on October 4, 2017, on an internal highway of the reserve. The collision between a pickup truck and a truck loaded with potatoes. The result of the accident was: 1 dead baby (on the highway), and the truck driver (in the hospital) also died, and the other 4 in the truck seriously injured.

Indian Highway Safety
Vehicles of this type black color from Fort Hall police follows the state standard with some differences.
The function is to do the Patrol on rural highways, and interstate and national highways that pass through the indigenous territory of the Shohones.

Notice: ... 0af06.html


This is a car standard that the indigenous reserve police used in 2014.
  I have a big doubt whether this pattern, and this type of car is still used to designate the sheriff's car.
The pattern is somewhat similar to the current Road Patrol car.
  We can see the officer badge on the vehicle.
  This mystery remains, and curiosity.
  which vehicle has the police standards set up in county vehicles.

7. Fire Patrol & Rescue:




Firefighting and rescue department of the Indian reservation or operates 3 ambulances and we can see in the pictures.
  The most recent was acquired on January 9, last year 2019 and was donated by the Pocanelo fire department to prevent the ambulance from being scrapped. Being the
second ambulance of its kind that was donated with the renewal of the Pocanello city fleet, the reserve now has better coverage of rescue services.
The news points out that in 2018 alone, made 1700 Rescue calls.

city Fort Hall (Indian Reservation) to Pocatello (city). Idaho.
Recommended delay setting 0.25 to get a better view of the route.
The route includes indigenous farms, and non-indigenous farms (probably). An indigenous farm with bison breeding.
An interesting random event to put on the highway parked car, rescuing over the train line between Fort Hall and Blackfott.

One area has a wonderful, beautiful scenic route.

N Beach Rd, St. Charles, Idaho.
1969 Eastshore Rd, , St. Charles, Idaho.

Map route: ... 0?hl=pt-BR

The main suggestion is a scenic route through Bear Lake.
Secondary suggestion is a link to the town of Ogaden through the mountains, a scenic asphalted road in UTAH and with space to farms and small town.

Below scenes from the IDAHO State Route area on Bear Lake.

Idaho trailer commercial plate:
Link: ... 1811741658

Contribution to research on Idaho.
  Specific commercial plate for truck trailers.




-- Ertl Idaho centinnial --
A great layout with specific and particular symbols of the State of Idaho.
I really liked this layout for the trailer, and this skin for the truck became quite a state identity.

For the semi tractors, the apportioned plates have "PRP" down the left side of them. This stands for "prorate plate," which is another term for apportioned registration.
