Idaho issues new yurt-cancellation policy

If a cancellation for a backcountry yurt operated by the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation occurs 21 calendar days or fewer prior to arrival, the cancellation fee is equal to the first night rental fee. If the cancellation occurs more than 21 calendar days prior to arrival, the cancellation fee stays at the previous rate of $10.


Sheep moving through Bear Basin

About 4,000 sheep and lambs will be in the Bear Basin Recreational Area through July 15. The sheep are escorted by guard and herding dogs and herders leading pack strings. Trail users are advised to use caution if walking their dogs in the area.

Livestock may also be encountered in the Lick Creek Road corridor, at Boulder Lake and in the Warren Wagon Road corridor.

For information, call (208) 634-0400.
