Boise End Game

OK folks, it's just about time to pack up camp and move on. I've mostly gotten into my routine of work, sax, climbing here. Last weekend on Saturday I drove up to Bogus Basin to check out the local ski hill. You drive from downtown Boise where it is spring weather and sunny, 16 miles up a windy mountain road, gaining 4000 feet in elevation, and you are at Bogus Basin. I paid $25 (cheap!) for the lift ticket and skied a bit. It was cloudly, cold (compared to downtown), and snowing a bit. I explored the back side briefly but I started to feel a bit dizzy and the flat light made it hard to see contour, so I headed home early.

Tomorrow night I'm headed to another Boise Philharmonic concert, and then Saturday morning I drive to Bend, Oregon for phase six!

The Boise photos are here.

Here's my favorite bouldering route at the local rock gym. Gratuitous pull-ups included at no extra charge.
