Camas Prairie

The more time I  spend in Idaho the more amazed I am. We have resumed our weekend warrior schedule, making the ambitious exploration jaunts on the weekends. In grad school this killed me; Mondays left me longing for sleep. Here it is different. My backyard still holds so many undiscovered treasures that the weekend warrior missions are not the previous 3+ hours of driving just to get there. AND I am no longer writing a thesis. That helps too.
 This past weekend we made our way to the Camas Prairie. To the passing eye it looks nothing more than a sagebrush flatland. Passerby you are deceived! This place is fantastic. We explored on foot for hours and discovered deep blackrock canyons, cavernous lava tubes and even came across an old junkyard. One man's trash is another's treasure. When you take the time to set out on foot it is impressive what you may find...
