Into the Outdoors

Call it a convergence of coincidences. We had a beautiful day on Sunday, which made me start thinking about future trips. I ran across this on the Gear Junkie's website, and it's another crazy Idaho adventure by Boisean Steve Graepel, who also wrote about a bike and packraft trip in the Owyhees.
Obviously he doesn't mind suffering. He hiked rim to rim in Hells Canyon in 36 hours, which included 42 miles and 18,000 vertical feet of climbing.
Maybe we can't follow in his footsteps, but we can at least use his trip for motivation to roll our own adventures. They don't just happen, you have to make them happen.

Look familiar? Maybe not. This is the backcountry at Soldier Mountain. The ski area near Fairfield offers cat ski trips, and they're taking bookings now. You can read all about it on Thursday, but you can also get some details on Soldier's website here.

After doing my weekly fishing report for the Jan. 15 Idaho Outdoors, Don Hartman at West Magic Resort sent me this photo taken on Wednesday. Here's what he had to say: "14.4 lbs total, Steve Johns, using baited jigs. Total time: 2.5 hours."
