    Just a quick tip. Each state for the most part will have a Department of Transportation App, we’ll most of these Appa have road cameras all around the state. So if your traveling and not sure what the weather is doing miles up the canyon, just check the app and view the cameras! I love using this as a road condition and weather app. Are the roads dry, snowy, rainy.... this has come in handy for me so many times. Just thought i’d share.

    Here’s Idaho 511 App.


    Know the road before you go!!

    Yes iOS but I’m sure it’s made for multiple platforms. We had someone traveling from Idaho to Utah, and wanted to check the road conditions along the way as the storm progressed. It’s also great to check traffic and why traffic is jammed up and how far.

    There was a huge traffic jam for miles, I used the camera and saw it was a massive jam, so took the next exit to get off the freeway. The Utah app has accident alert, construction alerts and general traffic congestion indicators

    I use it all the time to check how the weather might be up near the mountain roads for fishing
