Rattlesnake Station

I recently drove from Mountain Home, Elmore, Idaho to Fairfield, Camas, Idaho.  Along the route, I stopped at the old Rattlesnake Station location off Highway 20.  Rattlesnake Station was on the Overland Stage Line in Idaho.  After the Oregon Short Line railroad came through the valley the Post Office was dragged down the hill to be closer to the railroad.  The Post Office was later renamed to Mountain Home.  But this pictures gives a glimpse of how barren the landscape is in the area (look beyond the highway).
