Today’s Photo: Bogus Basin Road
This was perhaps the most interesting point of my trip to Idaho, the Bogus Basin Road. The road begins near the north edge of downtown Boise and travels up, almost literally, into the Boise National Forest. The drive was only 16 miles and I guessed I would have plenty of time to make it out and back. The drive up was great, with many stops for photos. About 3/4’s of the way, the road switches from the east side of the ridges to the west side. That was when it got real fun. Being from the south, I don’t have too much experience driving in snow and ice packed roads that are about six inches of hard pack. Luckily for me, there were several turn outs which were not completely snow covered. If not, for those, surely I would have been run over by the local skiers.
