Boise, ID driving trip suggestion?

Jump to last reply

I've driven through the Northern part of Idaho on I-90 once, but have never been to southern ID. I can get some cheap last-minute air/car package for this weekend from Houston to Boise, so I'd like to see some mountains.

From the maps and ID tourism guides, it seem like the Ponderosa Pine scenic byway and the Hell's Canyon scenic byway are both pretty interesting. But I will only have one full day for the driving trip, so I wonder if I can do both, and if not, which is more interesting.

I love mountain and curvy roads. The scarier the better. And high mountain passes are my favorite. But I don't want heavy traffic. I can also drive 10-12 hours a day, solo, with no problem.

Or other roads out of Boise that I should do instead?

Also, I'm looking at some beautiful pictures of Shoshone Falls. Would you consider it a "must see" in southern Idaho?

Thanks for any advice for this likely last-minute trip.
