One of the best Magic Valley Facebook groups is the "You Might Be From Twin Falls, Idaho" page. There was a photo that Lee Glaesemann scanned and shared on that page over the weekend which floored me. It's a picture of Blue Lakes as it was back in 1967.

Yes, this tree-lined street is Blue Lakes facing north near Lawndale. What would eventually become a huge commercial area on both sides was a very scenic trip through the heart of Twin Falls back in the day.

This is my best guess where this photo was taken from based on how Blue Lakes looks today.

Looking at these pictures makes me feel like Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future when he first stepped out of the DeLorean after going 88 mph.
