Just an hour north of Boise, Garden Valley lies in a valley formed by the confluence of the South and Middle Forks of the Payette River. Here you’ll find the leisurely pace and friendliness of a small mountain town, and some of southwestern Idaho’s most prestigious housing subdivisions.
The tiny town of Crouch is part of Garden Valley, and its old buildings retain the rustic flavor of the old West. The community is on the Wildlife Canyon Scenic Byway, eight miles east of Highway 55. Mountain peaks soar to 7000 feet above the town and below it stretch meadows bisected by the meandering South Fork of the Payette River. Those meadows provide winter range to large herds of elk and deer and host numerous migratory birds such as Canadian geese and eagle, osprey, heron and hawks.
The Payette River system offers whitewater classifications from I to IV. Outfitters offer half-day, full day and overnight trips spring through autumn.
If you find a keyboard or mouse difficult to use, speech recognition software such as Dragon NaturallySpeaking may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls.
If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.
A text transcript is a text equivalent of audio information that includes spoken words and non-spoken sounds such as sound effects. NAR is working on adding transcripts to all scripted video and audio content.
A caption is transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally rendered visually by being superimposed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio (e.g., when in a crowded room). Most of NAR's video content includes captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device's volume controls and your media players' volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
