As Captain Bonneville and his men approached what is now Boise from east along the route that would later become the Oregon Trail, they crested the top of a hill that gave them their first view of "The City of Trees." Bonneville's men were so happy to see the wooded valley that they shouted "Let's make wine! Let's make wine!" or "The trees! The trees!" depending on who your French translator is. This unexpected outburst of enthusiasm became the namesake for the Boise River and the forthcoming village of Boise, although it's a bit of a mystery as to when the extra 'e' got added on the end.
