just my first leg

October 03, 2016  •  1 Comment

This starts at day two-ish because for the life of me I can't remember where I camped that first night, (but I was always thinking, I'll remember).

So, second night I started down a road that promised a campground but it never happened. It was getting late. The road eventually led to a huge clearing at the end of an ATV trail at the top of… guess… Deadman's Pass.

Of course I didn't know that till morning.


I still managed to stir up a stir-fry and in the morning, some bull's eye toast.

Anyway, blah, blah, blah.

Saw every star in the whole universe

Saw planets,


Lots of country side,





King of the HillHow dos one tree get to the top of a big hill like that? It's not an Ent is it? A baby Ent?  




I arrived in Salmon Idaho at a (good) friend's Dad's ranch. This is where I met Bonnie, the goat herder and bear killer extraordinaire.

Later an ATV trip to the mountain to search for rocks from an old copper mine and learn about Blood-Hound Hill and Hood Boarding.


(Thank you Shanna 'banana' Cowan for the $ contribution and the 'suggest' on the ranch visit.)


Two days later I left with a tummy full of sourdough bread, sourdough pancakes, pounds of bacon, sausages, dozens of eggs, and always with more pancakes.

Not to forget a 'mention' on a very large bowl of M&M's.


Some surrounding photos, but no pics of the ranch, (it's a witness protection thing) Can't let them know where I've been.



and the rocks....


I tend to drive long hours so when I stop and get out of the car… sea legs.

Thinking gets a bit distorted too… more than my usual lack thereof.

So if I got any of this wrong, please let me know.


From there I went to SF, but not before hitting 'Craters of the Moon'




Enjoying the writing and the images ...
