Great Year For The Desert Rivers

Bruneau Near Sheep Creek

Is Buying a home in Boise or Mountain Home a better idea if you want to raft the Bruneau river? Ez just like the mls search tool on our website. It only runs for a few weeks a year. The answer is clearly Buy in Boise. While I made it on an early season Owyhee trip, and being a Boise Real Estate agent with out vacation, I  missed out on the Bruneau river this year. I was busy helping people buy Boise real estate. This shot is courtesy of Dr. Mark Grajcar who nimbly led the boys down through 5 mile! Good job Mark, that is always a tough read and run, even if you have done it a few times! For those of you who raft and have not been down the Bruneau,shame shame. What are you waiting for? At the time of this posting it is running at a respectable 2180 cfs, Big hole river right in there somewhere. Go on, get your boat and get going. For those of you who are not boaters you can drive to the rim and in some places hike to the river for a day of hoodoo admiring or fishing when the water goes down! Just find the wintercamp road and follow it west. There are a number of finger roads that slide off to you right that take you to the rim. I am unsure exactly how the wilderness designation impacted those roads. Also any friends, past clients or future clients who want a morel picking spot this weekend give me a buzz. I have two I want to try and no time. As always if you or any body you know is planning on selling or buying Boise real estate we would be honored to spend this week end finding your new home and next weekend rafting together!
