Dagger Falls, I Freeze

I ride for an autumn night by myself near Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains but am kept from my intended destination by wildfire. I find myself camped instead near an old fishway and falls along the Middle Fork of the Salmon, gateway to wilderness and “river of no return.” I spend the evening exploring on foot and the morning trying to warm up.

Hard Road to Boulder Basin

Jess and I narrowly avoid fire closures as we make our way north of Ketchum to spend the night high within historic Boulder Basin. The last five miles are quite challenging. They take longer than the first 200. It’s evening when finally we make it to the breathtaking basin.

Hike into Beaver Creek Cabin

Jessica and I plan a backwoods cabin getaway at the end of a short hike through snow north of Idaho City. It’s only two days after hernia surgery but I figure I can walk slowly. I didn’t anticipate needing to chop wood.
