So, while I work my way through the Ridge to Rivers Trail System during the week, on the weekend I like to select something further afoot. Yesterday, this meant my first trip out to the Wilson Creek area in the foothills of the Owyhee Mountains south of Nampa, Idaho. I was on the trail by 8:15 am, and it was worth the early hour to have the trail to myself and explore at my own leisure.
If you're in the area, I highly recommend checking out this hike. I completed 9.5 miles in about four hours with a short snack stop to refuel and enjoy the view. Idaho is a beautiful place, and my goal is get out and explore more of it.
