Trip planning can be rewarding, fun, or just plain stressful. Everyone’s experience is different. But in the end, a good successful day-hike, climb, or backpack takes time and energy to execute. I am a planner, dreamer, and lover of the shear thought of the process.
Recently Silly Chili started Tuesday Family Hike Night in Boise, Idaho. He is using the guidebook The Hiker’s Guide Greater Boise by Scott Marchant as his reference. Silly was even able to meet the author and buy the book at the local Farmer’s Market. It is a huge understatement to say that I am totally ecstatic with this new development…OR as my eldest daughter would say, it is totes fab!
Dan and I of course participated in the weekly activity while we are visiting in Boise. Last night we hiked the Mores Mountain 2.1 mile loop in the Bogus Mountain Recreation Area. This short hike featured wildflowers, vistas, green open meadows, deep woods, aspen groves, rock outcroppings, and butterflies. This well-maintained trail has a 500 foot elevation gain that circles Mores Mountain. I think our whole fam would agree that Family Hike Night and the Mores Mountain Trail were a perfect match.
