Stateline Trail part 4

Here is my latest hiking video.   this was  a part of my 7 year project to hike across Idaho on the Idaho Centennial Trail.      July of 2011.    

this section was 30 miles of the Stateline Trail, FR391, between Dry Creek Road, Little Joe Road, and Crittenden Peak.  

Day 1 was 10 miles, Day 2 was 20 miles.  both hikes were done with vehicle support.   with me on this trip were Jerry Finnegan and my son-in-law, Tyler Parrish.

Baja Road to Walter's Ferry

this week's big hike was 41.5 miles. on Sunday,  I started at the beginning of Baja Road at 1 pm. I walked 17.5 miles, stopping to pick up my water cache at mile 15. 

Coyotes serenaded me with a desert symphony all night. I named it "Concerto in the Key of Yip"

Monday I rose early and started walking at 7:30 am. At the 22 mile mark I left the high desert plateau and descended several hundred feet into the Snake River canyon. after breakfast at Swan Falls, Dam, I continued west along the River Canyon Trail for 12 miles to Celebration Park. I was surprised to see Halverson Lake along the way.

at Celebration Park, I rested for 20 minutes, then continued west past the Duffy bridge on Laughlin Lane for the last 6 miles.

Tyler met me at Ferry Road near Walter's Ferry. I made it to my tag point of the sign at Highway 45 and Ferry Road at 6:40 pm.

11 hours and 10 minutes, 24 miles for Monday.

41.5 miles for the trip in two days.
