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 the obvious impression that there is a lot of snow pack in the mountains still waiting to thaw.
Arrowrock Reservoir still had ice on it and was quiet and refreshing, again no crowds. Scattered patches of snow and the rivers are running full. It would be some time until the fishing is good once again on the rivers up here.
The fishing this weekend, well, they call it fishing and not catching for a reason. Nothing but a few small trout and even smaller bass. So, I set the pole and did other things. That is, if you call being lazy doing other things.
It was an uneventful travel weekend. Not much going on other than a lot of napping, reading and music in the fresh air and of course hanging out with Gizmo.
I took very few pictures. Unusual for me. It was all about doing nothing I suppose and that I did. After all, this was the first weekend of many to come.
