Getting High in Central Idaho (Jul 2019)

In what has become a two-year tradition, the 4th of July weekend found us back in Idaho with Ben and Kirsten, exploring around the central part of the state. This year, we made our way to a few places we'd been before - namely Railroad Ridge (the highest road in Idaho), and the creeptastic Livingston Mine. But, we also visited several places that were new - often the best part of any trip - Deadwood Reservoir, Dagger Falls, Washington Basin, the Old Custer Motorway, and Twin Peaks.

In the process, we crossed avalanche- and scree-fields, explored lost mines, and found ourselves with views to infinity. It was spectacular.

It rained on and off through the night, but it was warm enough that the tents dried off quickly each time it did. And of course, cloudy skies meant no sunrise - and for me, more sleep! Having circled the trucks in camp, things were reasonably peaceful…

In perhaps our most-traveled month to date, July was nearly an entire month in Idaho. In fact, we've had four trips in the last couple of months to this tiny state - after only having visited once before. After our SE Idaho trip to Indian Hot Springs…
