Hello Yellow

July 27, Wednesday Today I drive into Yellowstone National Park to meet up with a friend from Amazon and Quartzsite. It’s a bit of a drive from Island Park, ID where I’m currently boondocking. I’ll be camping in Yellowstone from August 1st until the 6th for a family reunion, but as I’ll be busy with…

July 20, Wednesday There’s a heaviness to the air as I pack up and prepare to depart Beaver Dick County Park, near Rexburg, ID. Insects hum from the protection of the scrubby woods, there’s not a lick of breeze to be found. It’s going to be a hot day. Luckily my destination is at a…

The last couple days at my camp in Sawtooth National Forest go quickly. Perhaps it’s the sleep deprivation from last week’s¬†sunrise photoshoot catching up. I spend my time reading and writing, and don’t go anywhere. When you’re living in as beautiful location as this, the desire to go explore isn’t as compelling. Having a new…

July 13 & 14, Wednesday/Thursday It’s a lazy day along the Big Wood River, in Sawtooth National Forest. I sleep in intentionally, and hang around camp reading and writing for the blog. A plethora of birds keep me company, I have yet to see a single chipmunk or ground squirrel at this location. The grass…

After the fun hike in Sun Valley, ID, the weather cools down. On Sunday the 10th it storms, bringing hail and rain. Not a lot, but an on-and-off spattering of drops and plinking of pea-sized pellets that keeps me cooped up inside the Casita, reading. Even with all the windows closed to ward off the…

I’ve met up with Nina of Wheeling It to go on a hike, Paul is staying back at their motorhome with their dog Polly, who had surgery recently. Polly’s the reason they’re here right now, attending doggy rehab in Ketchum this month…

Wednesday, June 29 A severe thunderstorm warning goes out for the town of Bellevue, ID, where I’m currently camping at Hayspur Hatchery. Nickle-sized hail pings off the roof of the Casita as I peer through the rain-splattered window of my diminutive home, parting the blinds farther to make sure my eyes aren’t deceiving me. Is…

Monday, June 27 My Walmart neighbor (the retired rodeo clown) tells me that since I’m heading north out of Twin Falls, ID, I need to stop at the visitor center and see the Snake River and bridge. When I wake up this morning their Bounder is already gone. Safe travels and happy trails, folks. I’ve…

The Long Way Around

Thursday, October 1 I’m about 90% sure I see a wolf when driving to my morning truck appointment in West Yellowstone. The air is cool, traffic is almost non-existant, and puddles grace the pavement from last night’s rain. Around a curve a light colored shape is trotting along the shoulder towards me on the other…
