Boise’s Backyard – The Boise National Forest

Boise’s Backyard – The Boise National Forest

A Summer Spent on The Water Exploring the Middle, North and South Fork of the Boise Rivers and Beyond 2016 Let’s look back at 2016 quickly. I gave up my apartment to move to Colorado. That move ended in disaster; but opened the door to many exciting adventures. I began my 8 month adventure in Pagosa Springs Colorado. My goal was simple, see as much of the North West States as possible before the snow flies, that was the plan anyway. My home while traveling, my 2006 Toyota Tacoma and an Alps Mountaineering tent, keeping it light and simple. My Read more »

Life, Camping and Celebration

A good life. Blacks Creek Rd, Anderson Ranch Reservoir, and Arrowrock Reservoir. A 20-minute drive and the Boise National Forest is my backyard. Life, what a time to live.This month of travel has been a busy one.

The rest is downhill until you get to the next hill, Read more »

I like it here in Boise and after nine months of living on the road, I thought the city would be a change and a change it has been. Strangely enough though, this place works for me, all things considered.

Traveling again, It’s about time

Traveling again, It’s about time

Once gain I’m traveling the Boise National Forest. It seemed as though I was hibernating all winter long, anxiously anticipating the day I can get back into the mountains or just get out and do some traveling. What turned out to be a quick drive to lucky Peak Reservoir turned out to be a two and a half day get away.  Nothing really spectacular but reasonable weather and no crowds. I guess that is spectacular, lucky me. The spillways at Luck Peak and Arrowrock Dams look like they were running wide open, yet the Lakes are still quite low. Giving you Read more »
