It looks to me like the dirt road from Highway 20 to the Cow Creek bridge and either go to Prairie or go to Anderson Ranch Dam once you cross the bridge. I would think the mist is coming off the Boise river just have to wait and see LOL.

Nope, it's not that dirt road. But you are very very close. You have the answer in your post.

The dirt road that you are talking about is about 200 yards to the left of this picture.

I'm hoping someone else will at least give a guess!

Jessie, guess I didn't know there is 2 roads in the same area, so looks like nobody else is going to try and figure it out, so may as well tell me LOL.

Well, actually that is Hiway 20. We are far enough up and away that it looks small enough to be a dirt road, but Hiway 20. It was a beautiful morning and I love looking back to where I rode from and take pictures. I took shots all along the way. This photo was taken in..... hmmmmm... maybe May? Early June? Somewhere about then...and of course early morning.

Thanks for playing! You don't let me down. You don't remembe the cowboy statue? I'm under the impression you were here then.

I don't remember much about the cowboy statue, but if memory even comes close I think I have seen it but not enough to remember where it may have been. I got here in July of 1968 and alot of things have changed since then. I have traveled around most of this area either deer hunting or snowmobiling. I have been on top of trinity on the road if you could find it with over 20 foot of snow on the ground, same going over James creek summit to Atlanta in the winter. It has been interesting to me to see all your pictures.

I got here about the same time...maybe a bit earlier, but was 4, so don't remember everything from then, but yes....lots and lots of changes.

Yep, been to top of Trinity too. Even in summer still snow to be found there. 4 Wheelers have taken me there, but lots of horse back hours too. I used to want to be in the mountains, but in the last ten years or so, I've found such fascinating things in the desert. It's just not flat and barren as it looks from the hiway. I find something every trip to take pictures of. I'm hoping to get a shot at (camera shot) at some wolves, so crossing my fingers over that. I got the badger, moose and elk, so those were very exciting. I've seen bear, but they don't seem to linger long enough (even seconds) for me to get a shot at them. But I'm working on it!

Thanks for the friendly banter! I enjoy it.

Jessie: I've been traveling Idaho for a little over 20 years in a row and another 20 something, with breaks, and the only animal I've not seen alive is a cougar. Three most precious were a gray wolf, bobcat, and wolverines (pair). I hope you get a chance to see them and take a picture but you will have to be ready as all but the wolverines took off in a hurry. The bobcat was just east of Picabo, the gray wolf behind Donnelly and the wolverines right up on US 20 at milepost 132.2. Big Horned sheep north of Challis at I remember as MP 187 something. They seemed to like picture taking.

Thanks for the comment Skeeter. I really do appreciate friendly banter. ah.... yes...I've seen bobcat, but that was before my photo taking addiction hit me.... and had forgot about cougar, I don't have that one either. I've seen the tracks of wolves, and I'm AMAZED at the print they leave.

The badger I got was out in a field, and I felt a bit foolish for tracking him/her, but I KNEW it was there, since I'd seen it walking. I got the photos, and didn't see the teeth til I was looking at them on my pc. Some he was just looking, others his teeth were showing. All good.

I hope that as much time as I spend out, I'll get the ones I want.

The moose were fun to get, though I was actually a bit more skittish about them, than the badger, since there was a baby and all. But worth it.

Thanks again

Jessie

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
