Boise National Forest (7/12/2021)
|Anderson Ranch Reservoir|
Well, it's been a minute. About a year actually. This is my first post since my ex broke up with me, and let me say it's been a bummer. Not only am I just generally a sad sack of shit (please take me back, I miss you so much), but trips like these just aren't as fun without her. I mean, going out at night to take star photos in the middle of nowhere is honest to God terrifying, and it's just one of those things I know I'd enjoy a whole hell of a lot more if she were with me. Regardless, this isn't what I'm here about, right? Just gonna kick the depression for a bit and get to the parks.
This is gonna be the first of (three, I think) posts from my Idaho trip that I'm still currently on. Boise National Forest is located in East-Central Idaho, and unfortunately I only got to view it through the window of a car as we drove from our family reunion in Nampa to the cabin we're renting in Featherville. I got a couple decent photos from the drive I want to share with y'all. The first is the header: a shot from Anderson Ranch Reservoir. It's a little blurry in the background, blame that on focus and on the fact that Idaho is dry as fuck right now (the reservoir is way down), which has stirred up a bunch of dust. That on top of the wild fires have caused quite the haze in the area around the mountains.
My next photo was a bit earlier on the drive, somewhere outside Mountain Home off US-20. Just a nice field and some nice hills. I actually got quite a few photos, but going 90 mph down the highway meant that only a few of them turned out the way I wanted.
The next couple of posts will be of Sawtooth NF and Crater of the Moons (hopefully)! I'll see you around then.
PS. Re: my last post – my next trip to Alabama ended with Rachel breaking up with me, so no, definitely not more fruitful.
