Wendell is a small town near Gooding, ID. Other then the town it self it offers a great experience in it's back yard. Wendell has a beautiful scenery of the Niagara Springs. Also after a very hot day you may take a dip in the nice cool water from the springs. I hope to see Wendell grow in offering family friendly activities.
It changes from day to night pretty crazily sometimes. It can be shorts weather in the morning, but then snowing that night. The summers can sometimes very hot and there is very little rain. During the fall, it can be pretty chilly. It snows early sometimes. In the winter it sometimes gets warm when it isn't snowing. During the spring, it rains and can be windy. All in all though, it is never something unbearable.
