Take a tour of Lake Lowell
It was a bit of a blustery day on Saturday, but we decided to tackle the 26.5-mile loop around Lake Lowell anyway on our road bikes. It was a nice ride, especially on the south side of the reservoir, where you ride next to Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge, a large cottonwood forest and lots of wildlife habitat.
Jim Hine and I recorded our thoughts on video after the ride, and Jim provided a cool interactive GPS map of the ride.
The Lake Lowell loop is one of 30+ road rides featured in the Boise Road Cycling Guide, a two-sided color waterproof map that provides detailed directions to all of the best rides in the Boise Valley and beyond. I'll be giving a presentation about the guide at 7 p.m. Wednesday night at the Boise REI store.
I'm also posting some cool photos that Mike Shipman was kind enough to share. Mike is giving a presentation on his wildlife photography at Deer Flat NWR on Tuesday, April 7, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Deer Flat NWR Visitor Center in Nampa. His photo business is called Blue Planet Photography.
