I woke a little earlier, in time to stroll down to the lake just as the sun hit the far shore, I think this is my favourite picture I’ve taken of Pettit lake. After a flat 6 mile walk along Alturas Creek yesterday it was time for something more challenging, the Alturas Creek trail isContinue reading “Cabin Creek Lakes, Sawtooth Mountains, Idaho”
Having not reached Washington Lake yesterday I thought I should get there today using the regular approach from Fourth of July Road. I managed to roust Biff in time to get an early start (9am) on a beautiful sunny day. A few years ago there was a big fire on Fourth of July road, inContinue reading “Washington Lake, Idaho”
Last year Janet and I hiked up to Fourth of July Lake and a little beyond to what we thought was Washington Lake, as it turned out the second lake we got to was unnamed and Washington Lake a bit further down the trail. Inspecting the map I saw that Washington Lake was also accessibleContinue reading “Germania Valley, Idaho”
Pettit Lake, Idaho Once again I find myself camped at Pettit Lake in Idaho, my fourth annual visit to the lake. I camped one night just outside the forest service campground waiting for a space to become available. Behind The Caravan was a small hill with good views up and down the Salmon River FromContinue reading “Near Pettit Lake, Idaho”
It was a lovely snowy day for a walk, no wind and 34F. I enjoyed it so much that we walked 6.8 miles rather than our usual 4.4 mile loop. The cliffs appeared and disappeared as snow clouds drifted across the Velvet Ridge The Giant Red Monster made a brief appearance (not Biff, the cliff!)Continue reading “Snowy Walk with Biff on Sand Creek”
Finally it was time to start heading north to colder climes. The first stop was only 75 miles north in Parker Arizona, or actually in Earp, California just across the river. I bought a new patio mat in Parker at a very useful RV store, BIff seemed to enjoy his new “grass”. The next dayContinue reading “Mojave Snowbird Trip – The Journey Home”
So, not having found the bridge I needed to make one more attempt, we took a rest day to recover from walking on all those rocks then set off in search of the mystery bridge. We drove the little road stopping at the place calculated to be closest to the canyon with the bridge, atContinue reading “Mojave Snowbird Trip – Tank Bridge”
The maps I’m looking at have a bridge marked up a canyon near where I have been the last two days, near the base of the canyon there is also a notation of some Horse Tanks. I though these would be man made tanks like those for cattle, but not at all! I drove rightContinue reading “Mojave Snowbird Trip – Horse Tanks”
I am camped on King Road which continues up the hill from my site and through a gap in the mountains to the east, I had to see where it went. As I drove through the gap I happened to look over at exactly the right moment to see a tiny arch high on theContinue reading “Mojave Snowbird Trip – Tank Arch”
