slow start to hiking 2013

what a different winter we are having here in Boise this year!   my total walking mileage last year in 2012 was 1,001 miles.   that is combined trails, snow shoe-ing, and pavement or Greenbelt walking.    for the month of January 2012, I already had 105 miles  (200 by the end of February).   we had a very mild winter during January and February last year.   by contrast, I only have 20 miles total for January 2013, due to the extreme cold we have had this month.    just to get some miles I went once to the mall and walked 3 miles, and once to my work which has miles of hallways and walked 3 miles.   I am hoping that February will allow me to get going again outside.

Stateline Trail video

another part of my 7 year Idaho Centennial Trail adventure. 

the Stateline Trail runs along the Idaho - Montana border for approx. 150 miles. 

this is a section of that trail, which I hiked solo in July of 2009. 

this video is actually Part II. Part I is still in the *production* phase. 

This segment is 22 miles between just south of Eighty Seven Mile Peak along the stateline to a point on Dry Creek Road.

Gospel Hump part B

Gospel Hump part B

I completed another hiking video.  This is part B of the Gospel Hump Wilderness, one of the sections I hiked as part of my Idaho Centennial Trail experience.   in Part A which was titled Buffalo Hump, I hiked with my son Daniel in from the eastern side of the wilderness to Buffalo Hump.   in Part B, my oldest son John and  I hike in from the western side and go almost all the way across the wilderness and back.   from August of 2009
