August 26 Rich with family history by Jim Cooper
park review stars; one to five Among a collection of family photos was a photo of my Dad when he was a toddler and Grandparents at Balanced Rock ca 1910. They ranched south of Filer. In 2004, I visited the park and camped in the County Park. Beautiful!
