Eleven mile out and back to a glacial lake surrounded by peaks and glaciers.With the trail-head 27 miles west of Radium British Columbia on the "Horse thief" forest service road, we were surprised how popular this hike is. Four groups totaling twelve people were on the trail on a Monday. Starting at 4700 ft. the trail is only open mid June till freeze-up as they remove one of the bridges necessary to cross "Hell Roaring Creek". The lake is at 7100 Ft. and a lot of the elevation is in the last 2.5 miles so it's a bit of a grind.

Reports of Spoonbills visiting the Recharge Ponds this week made them a must stop for me this morning. I arrived to find two photogs busy snapping away at not one, not two but five wading in what little water there was in Pond 1. Joining them were egrets and Great Blue Herons. I stayed for a while then went off to check out some other areas. I found more egrets in another pond. Heading back I saw the Osprey that had been around earlier. It flew to a pole right by the pond where the Spoonbills were and I discovered that some White Faced Ibis had joined the crowd. Leaving the area I came upon a Turkey Vulture up on a pole.

Lush and green out here thanks to the rain. Chuparosa and Brittle Bush may soon flower, but the grass is also thick.

July 13, 2022 I was looking forward to my hike around the Idaho Falls River Walk.  Idaho Falls is along the old Montana Trail.  I had a half-waffle at the Super 8 and a small cup of coffee before heading out.  I started at the bridge on W Broadway Street and opted to go counter-clockwise.  This walk is on the Greenbelt along a portion of the Snake River.  Your first look is a great preview for the rest of your show.  I spent a few moments taking video of the falls, both natural and man-made. 

Next to the flowers I started my walk and headed for the bridge to cross over the Snake River.  At 1,078 miles long, it is the largest tributary of the Columbia River, in turn the largest North American river that empties into the Pacific Ocean.  I would then head north on a paved walkway.  There was a variety of trees and unique seating accommodations with occasional flower gardens and benches; everything was well manicured.   The Veterans Memorial was very nicely done and they even had a long-range gun of some sort set up next to it. Further along there is also a band shell.  There were some great benches and seats like one set of four that had dog paw marks on top, An old fashioned penny-farthing bike bench, and bear seats to name a few.

Here is where you will also start seeing the animal sculptures that have plants growing out of them, mostly succulents.  What a great idea.  And there were many of these sculptures on both sides of the river.  You eventually make your way by the Idaho Falls Temple.  It made its way into many of my pictures as I walked around the river.  As I continued I noticed lines painted on the walkway for passing, no passing, and slow.  I didn't initially notice these. 

I would walk across another of the Snake River bridges, this time on Highway 20.  I would come down to a big cul de sac as I headed south.  I saw some geese across the waterway (like a natural canal) and continued passing by a great variety of trees.  This side of the river (west) is definitely the commercial side with hotels and eateries.  I assume it's a little more expensive to stay next to the river but it is a nice view.  If I stop here again, I would want to hike it in the evening after having dinner at one of the restaurants looking over the river.

You pass by Keefers Island (an old gold mining claim) in the river before coming to where the main falls are flowing.  They have a viewing ramp to get you above the spillway-like area and where you get a sweeping view of the man-made and natural part of the falls.  As you continue you can get closer to the river as they have a couple areas you can drop into for a different point of view.  The greenbelt part continues with flower gardens and various trees along with benches, some very quirky.  I finished where I started enjoying the flora and flow of the water.  I am sure I missed a lot along the way but I couldn't dawdle much more than I did as I had several hundred miles to drive.  I highly recommend this walking hike; well worth your time.
Part 1  [ youtube video ]
Part 2  [ youtube video ]

And now to continue my drive to Big Arm, MT but not before stopping at the Starbucks for a large iced skim-milk cappuccino, the perfect drink for my long drive.  The first part takes me through an area that someone planted a lot of Russian Olive Trees that my cousin loves.  It's just intriguing how many there are along here.  Before getting to DuBois, I would pass by trucks transporting a wind turbine in about six different trucks for the blades and the base.  Initially I couldn't tell what big long cylinder the trucks were hauling but figured it out fairly shortly.  They do travel somewhat together but some had pulled off the road.  And then there was the tarp covered hay around DuBois. 

Eventually I would hit my first big hill at Spencer ID before descending into the big valley toward Montana and Monida (named for Montana/Idaho) Pass.  You can see mountains in several directions that still had quite a bit of snow for mid-July.  I do try to identify a lot of this in my videos including what looks like an old dilapidated house that was actually a schoolhouse and barn.  It's sad to see it disintegrate.

I arrived in Montana and continued to enjoy all the scenery including the beautiful green valleys and tall mountains of various textures.  It's a pretty drive with so much to see.  The weather was pretty nice though very windy.  It was interesting that almost every time I saw a 3-pup FedX truck there was a UPS 3-pup not too far behind (sometimes it was UPS first).  I saw at least five of these double 3-pup trucks (UPS and FedX). 

I passed by Red Butte, Clark Canyon Reservoir before coming to a mountain with spires near Grasshopper Creek.  I didn't realize that the side of this mountain had a formation called Pipe Organ.  As I neared the Highland Mountains (I thot they were the Pioneer Mountains) I did see in the distance the Humbug Spires.  They are quite interesting and would be fun to get up a little closer with the impressive outcroppings of quartz monzonite, part of the Boulder Batholith, that rise 300 to 600 feet.  I did my usual stop at the Rest Area just southwest of Butte and the I-90.

The weather started turning as I headed west on the I-90.  It became overcast especially as I rolled nearer Anaconda and Deer Lodge. I did manage to get several pictures of the Smelter Stack, the tallest surviving masonry structure in the world.  Once again, there were various mountain ranges in all directions, some still with snow.  I finally made it to Missoula where I stopped at Costco for fuel before heading north on Highway 93.   

The weather gradually improved and was actually pretty toasty when I got out at Allard's (St Ignatius) for my "huckleberry" stop.  I had my first dish of huckleberry soft-serve ice cream and while it was good, regular huckleberry ice cream with bits of huckleberry is much better.  While I was wandering around I found more huckleberry stuff to buy.  They have the best huckleberry taffy.

I finally made my way into Polson at the south end of Flathead Lake and drove the last fourteen miles to my friend's house at Big Arm on the west side of Flathead Lake.  If you'd like to take the drive with me, here are the three videos and once again, I tried my best to identify the landscape:

Another orchard trip this time with my pickin' pal.
Was hoping for peaches on this trip, but they only had Gala apples ready.
Such a beautiful, green & lush loop around the orchard.
It looks like a million apples in there this year.
Also many peaches, pears & apricots to boot (just not ready yet).
We left with 10 gala's, 1 apple pie, 1 apple bread loaf & apple jam.
Quick stop at RTM CG to check out Noon Creek's flow ... Medium
We then took our bounty to Roper Lake to sit and share with a friend.
A night lap around the park/lake ended our trip.
Baby King snake, Glossy snake (I think) & 2 Scorpions spotted at Roper.
:D

I hiked Pete mountain via the Agua Caliente canyon trail.

I under estimated how long it would take to do this hike. The main reasons why it took longer than I expected was because (1) the Agua Caliente trail was hard to follow in so many areas especially in the 1/2 mile below the saddle North and West of the canyon, and (2) the trail going to the peak from the saddle was very overgrown and hard to follow, and (3) there was a hard rain after I got to the peak which made going down a bit slippery. About 1 mile up the trail, past a stream crossing, I saw a very interesting looking caterpillar that was gray and white with big round eyes that were black with a blue center. It was about 3 inches long and almost looked like a tiny armadillo. I have photos of this amazing creature if anyone is interested.

Going Northwest of Agua Caliente saddle there is a faint trail which is very overgrown and hard to follow. I lost that trail several times but ended up getting back on it each time also. When I was at the peak, I found a glass jar in a pile of rocks which held a registry. While looking around I found a walking stick bug and got some nice pics. About 10 minutes after I got to the peak there was a light rain which turned into a strong rain. I put my rain coat on and carefully started the descent. The water in the canyon was flowing very nicely. The trail probably crossed the stream 5 times.

Excellent peak hike, and easily extended into a nice loop that bags two other 10ers on obvious peak-bagger trails. Loop is definitely best in the clockwise direction. The 3.5 miles of dirt road to the trailhead was not too bad but high clearance advised.

Went out on an exploration ride this morning to check out the area south of Cantamia. From google maps, it looks like a development was started and abandoned early on. Took an interesting route down and rode the "big oval". Rode Big Kahuna Loop / Big Kahuna on the way back and a quick spin through FINS to finish it off.

I was hoping it wouldn't be quite as muggy today. Nope, I was just as drippy at the end.

Kept my pace strong the whole walk. Passed a group of about a dozen seniors. It may not be long before I'm a member of them.

Quick and easy loop this morning. Saw another mountain biker and a hiker. Stopped to chat with my neighbors on my way back to the house. Great sunrise.

If there is anyone who thinks a golf course wouldn't make for a great hike, hit up the outer loop at Mt Graham Golf Course right now and take a gander across the foothills and up the mountain ... Wow!
Tonight looked like a postcard. Super green, yellow desert sunflower explosion and lot's of fire in the sky at sunset.
So many birds now around the 4 ponds and the biggest bullfrogs you will ever see.
There were also a lot of people out there this evening hitting little balls into holes with crooked sticks?
:D

I figured that I would stay close to home and do this hike again. Humidity is still up, but there were a few clouds that filtered the sun a bit.

I saw a few white sphinx moth caterpillars, but there weren't very many of them -- unlike this time last year when they numbered in the thousands.

I knew I was going to be happy to see how fantastic it looked in that area. :D The road in was in good shape and the grader was blading it when I was there (from the highway to the forest boundary). A few days earlier that probably would not have been the case, although that road handles heavy weather pretty well.

Nothing big just out enjoying all this mountain water!
Entered Jacobson at about the mid section and down to my secret waterfall.
Then a bit up Helldive Spring. Never even came close to the spring, tall grasses has the trail completely hidden.
I ended with the RTN where I was greeted with the evening's storm cells & a faint rainbow. Was heading up the road when I noticed the FS horses in the opposite direction up in the canyon. I can never pass up the horses so up the canyon I went at sunset. Reached and had a great interaction with the 8 of them before heading back down in the low light. It's always a little nerve racking hiking through the grasses wondering where them rattlesnakes are.
So beautiful up there with all the water & green!

Well, what a perfect morning for this hike. We got hit with some major rain last night and it shows on the trails. This specific area of trails goes all over. The preserve itself is like a 2-mile by 2-mile triangle. It is completely fenced end. But as far as the trails go you could hit an easy 15-mile hike without hiking on the same trail twice of course you will cross over sections you have done.

Now as far as dogs are concerned I would suggest they be kept on a 6-foot leash and nothing longer. I know, I know Rowdy is always off leash but Rowdy always hikes behind me unless he needs a water break and then he will pass me and wait in a shady spot. Rowdy does not bark at anything and he does not chase anything. And he does know what a rattlesnake is without the electric shock training. As a matter of fact, we came across a rattlesnake that won't move so I decided to put myself between Rowdy and the snake and Rowdy wouldn't have it. He move off the trail and just laid down so I decided just to go around it in the brush and Rowdy was happy with that.

Because this is a preserve when people call for snake removal this is where they turn them loose including Gila Monsters. Needless to say, this is where I see the most snakes, lizards, and other creatures. Last year I saw 5 Gila Monsters here and numerous other snakes.

Saw another rattlesnake today, a small diamondback. It was stopped in the middle of the trail. A man stopped there, said that we should figure out how to get it off the trail. I just walked behind and past it. Should have told the man that if he moved away from the snake instead of just standing there, it would continue too.
