Bear Valley, Three Forks Hot Springs, Middle Fork Of The Owyhee, Mt. Borah, Seven Devils And A New Bike

This is the blog to cover many of last summers trips. Yeah, I kinda lumped them all together, but summer is too nice to be blogging right?

The stairway out of hell? Turns out it's cold

I think I saw an alien back in there


Be prepared for extreme winds at night at Bear Valley Lake! Many tents were blown down


Bear Valley hot springs, highly recommended!







Three Forks hot (warm) springs. It's an entire creek and extremely beautiful!



Lucy, Joey, Ozzy and Laura crossing the Owyhee River













And to think that is all nice and warm at about 95 degree. Best soaked on a hot summer day.












The mouth of the canyon along the Middle Fork of the Owyhee River. Watch for rattlesnakes before the canyon on warm days! We saw three

Crawdad warfare







It's a small creek in the summer with deep sections!



Just outside of Arco

After climbing 2,000 ft, only 3,000 to go



Starting Chicken Out Ridge



The Lost River Mountain Range
