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.

This meandering road leads to the South Fork of the Boise river and Read more »

I like to get off the normally traveled path and see where it goes, spend time there and move on. Sounds like a journey to me.
