There is no doubt that all this snow has been a royal pain in the butt! However, it can also be incredibly beautiful. On a calm weather day you've got to take this drive before the white stuff goes away. 

I traveled HWY 55 along the Payette River during the summer time, and it is breathtakingly gorgeous, but the scene in winter time brings about a completely different beauty.

Along the way you'll pass through the rugged beauty of Horseshoe Bend, Cascade, Donnelly, and McCall. Check this drive out!
