Why the Owner Chose Albion, ID, USA:
After living in the most densely populated country in Europe, The Netherlands, for twelve years and within hearing of one of the busiest airports in the world, I was looking for peace and quiet and some elbow room. Albion, Idaho(pop.264) fulfills all those wishes completely. Being near Pomerelle ski resort and several wonderful state and national parks with lakes and hiking trails was a bonus. We enjoy spontaneous encounters with local fauna such as owls and deer and sand hill cranes. I especially like seeing the milky way and shooting stars at night. We hear a small airplane about every six months and have very little traffic. Old highway 77 winds through town and people generally observe the 25 mph speed limit. We are less than three hours from Salt Lake City international airport and Boise's too. There is an inexpensive shuttle that runs from both and has a stop 15 minutes away.
