Castle Rock

Come and see for yourself !

Back country

Took a drive Sunday evening past Castle Rock up to the summit. While the burn area was very much in evidence, there was an abundance of wild flowers and lots of wildlife. These young mule deer were near the summit, the road in background is one of the switch backs. Am looking forward to seeing the changes as the burn area sees growth continue for the next few years. Come visit and get off the beaten track. Biking, hiking, jeeping, trail biking--we have it all.

Triumph at elevation 9863'

The snows aren't melting fast enough for me, but they are melting. The south-facing slopes below 9000' are generally clear. If you go for a hike, expect to see snow still on the north-facing slopes, in the trees, or above 8500'. The photo above was taken on Herd Peak, just north of Sun Valley on the East Fork of the Big Lost River.

Idaho wildflowers

Here are two pretty teens enjoying the wildflowers en route from Boise to Sun Valley yesterday. Come visit. Enjoy the ride. Stop and smell the flowers. It's a perfect time to hike and bike in the Wood River Valley.
