It was late in a very dry season and there was no running stream. The pools were still there but just barely. Tiny frogs were the main attraction at the pools. The non-hikers in our group enjoyed it.

This race has a combined start for 10K and 5K, but at the corner they each go a different direction. Lots more participation in the 5K. This is part of a race series hosted by the city of Pocatello.

Staying on the outer edge of the park, you can run a grassy mile loop. The playground in the park is is reportedly one of the biggest all-inclusive playgrounds in the country with access for kids with mobility issues. Tons of rubberized base, and multiple zones and themes. I learned of this park when an Arizona friend added this as a stop on her road trip through the Northwest.

The pay to park system does not seem to reduce the large number of visitors to this beautiful alpine lake. Most of them are coming up from Bear Lake for an afternoon diversion.
We were surprised to find that the water wasn't lower than any other year, despite the droughts in the west.

Luck was with me. I found the glove that I lost two weeks ago, in a random place among the sage bushes. Today was the last 'warm' day in the 50's before winter temps set in and highs of 33 are predicted for the next 10 days. Brrr. I think I still have Arizona blood.

Nice day for exploring the foothills. As I was leaving a Fish and Game truck showed up and went up the hillside. Several other trucks also arrived and seemed to be watching the first one. It's possibly a pheasant-release date, and those guys were watching for the location.

The 'start when you want' helped with social distancing, but it made it hard to compete with anyone near the end.

Hiked along Beaver Dam Creek up along many cow paths. This forest is so full of cows that the wildlife count is low. Still we saw several grouse about midway up, and deer near the top once you get past the 3 miles of cows. Maybe there is another trail with less cows.
At the beaver ponds there were quite a few aspen trees freshly cut by beaver teeth, up on the side of the hill. Near this were signposts from an old trail.

Many people don't know about the Idaho State Park called Castle Rocks. Lots of rock spires and places to climb. I hiked beyond and followed a nice stream for miles, and then on to another. The only flaw was how much it smelled and looked like a cow pasture in places. It seemed like just recently the cows had been pulled off the mountain. It's hard to get used to the mixed-use forests of Idaho where cows seem to dominate. Only $5 per car or buy a state pass.

Down the Road is the City of Rocks National Reserve, and it was very full of rock climbers and camping. You can drive right up and start climbing. Driving through there is free, since it is on county roads.

One of the few road races still being held this pandemic year. Adjusted rules at the finish to prevent crowds, but still a great race. Very poor visibility this year due to fires in CA; The Tetons were not visible. But the haze kept the heat of the sun down just a little bit.


Split times mostly for my own notes (*some really not placed in the right place?)
6:45, 6:44, 6:38, 7:14, 8:39, 7:40, 7:27, *6:53, *7:42, 7:07, *6:21, 7:23, 7:18, 35.

Near the Snake River and within the Massacre Rocks state park are several easy trails. The Wagon Rut Trail is paved and includes two underpasses of the freeway. The trail starts and stays far above the river. Along the way we saw a family of orb spiders bouncing in the wind between sage brush. Too bad that none of the millions of small grasshoppers that met us seemed to land in their webs. At the end of this trail, the ruts can be seen coming down a hillside. Now they are more like a single large 'ditch' in the earth than two ruts, but interesting nonetheless.

Access to Idaho State Parks is $5 per car if you don't have an annual pass. This state park has a campground with 4 cabins that can be rented. A boat launch allows fishing and kayaking to the small islands in the river.

Just down the road is the Register Rock State Historic Site where Oregon Trail and California Trail travelers carved their names. One even carved faces (he eventually became a sculptor). We enjoyed looking at the names on the rock and trying to find whether our ancestor carved their name or not. Maybe? This was a very shady place for a picnic and we had the park to ourselves.

Sunny morning with snow on the ground. Lots of interesting tracks, from mice to grouse, to deer, and elk. When I saw the bear track I decided to turn around.

Wander through the snow. Deer tracks and a few elk were found, and tracks from a cat, which were far enough apart it seemed it could be a cougar. In the lower elevations we saw turkeys in the fields.

Lots of cows in the forest. Everywhere I looked for wildlife, there were cows. There were also partially buried pipes running for miles through the forest, to put water in the water holes for the cows. That seems a little too far beyond just 'sharing' the land.
