Top Owyhee Country Trips For A Day Or A Week!

Owyhee Mountains IdahoPlanning a trip into the unknown Owyhee desert country can be daunting. Before I started rafting and chukar hunting in this vast and often remote area I heard horror stories about the roads, the general inaccessibility of the area and conventional wisdom that told you… “Don’t go after it rains or you will never be seen again”, I assumed this was how the ghost towns came to be. As it turns out after 15 years I have yet to get so lost I did not find my way back, I only lost one hunting companion and that was only for 6 hours. Only once have I slid off the road into a barb wire fence! The Owyhee’s seem to be full of

BOISE, Idaho -- It’s raining at The Peregrine Fund’s World Center for Birds of Prey — and not in a good way. With record snowfalls and subzero temperatures hitting Boise these past few weeks, followed by rapid thawing this week, the interpretive center’s roof began to leak and create small waterfalls and all-out torrents inside the center.

Skijoring In Southern Idaho!

What The Heck Is It?

It is part walking the dog, part cross country skiing. Boise real estate agents Mike Carr & Erica Carr love their dogs and cross country skiing! A marriage of the two only seemed natural. It is easy and fun. One common misconception is that the dog does all the work. The tug of the dog does allows the skier short respites, but basically it turns an out of shape 50 year old realtor into a high quality athlete. At the end of a 5 mile ski, you are still drenched in sweat and exhausted. The benefits are many, the heart is healthy, the dogs is thin and lays quietly at your feet for a good day! Not to mention the skier's low key demeanor after whizzing past all the natural goodness!
