    Thank you! No, he didn't pan much and didn't see any color. The pan was used more for rolling dice in than finding gold. :)

    I think that all of the dead trees in that section are from an old fire burn. Not 100% sure on that though

    WOW!! That is incredible! We are possibly thinking about a trip into to the High Uintas in late July. I guess if we do, we better plan on hitting some snow.
  14. VIDEO: A snowy trip in to the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness

    We were looking to try to escape the snow that is still in the mountains near us. The Blue Mountains usually melt out before our mountains do, but not this year.

    The forecast was supposed to be...

    Great recap! That sounds like a rough trip to be sure. I know that I rely on map technology too much myself, and I've had a hard time even breaking myself of the habit.

    Thank you! The panhandle of Idaho is truly a beautiful place. Far too many people sit inside and wait for winter to pass. You've got to get out in it!!

    Usually that is about all the colder we get in Northern Idaho. Stanley, Idaho, which is farther south and in the Sawtooths, gets a lot colder than we do.
