I'm combining my new Facebook page, Speaking of Idaho, with this long neglected blog. My plan is to post daily, with few exceptions. Here's the first Speaking of Idaho post.
The Railroad Ranch saw its share of celebrities during its history, before becoming Harriman State Park. This picture shows then Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation Director Steve Bly with Elliot Richardson at the ranch in 1974. Richardson was US attorney general during the Nixon administration. He famously resigned rather than fire special prosecutor Archibald Cox during the Watergate scandal. This was probably a better day for him.
