Victim of fall, Nampa woman remembered for love of outdoors and adventure

Amanda Poole moved her two children to Nampa last November, starting a new life in her first time living away from her hometown of Tacoma.

During Idaho’s school spring break, her son and daughter returned to the Tacoma area to spend time with their father.

Poole used the break to get acquainted with a new friend, and on Saturday afternoon, March 30, the two headed west toward Malheur County’s Snively Hot Springs.

They never made it.

They stopped to admire the sunset from a high bluff south of Adrian and embraced – and then the man turned to go back to his car. He heard a gasp, turned and saw Poole fall out . . .
