I ran across this great blog by Emilie Ritter Saunders this week on the Boise State Public Radio web site. It talked about how Idaho is huge, topsy turvy, quirky and wonderful, and in the spirit of looking ahead to great trips in 2014, they came up with an Idaho 75 bucket list. It's got a lot of outdoorsy things in it, and some foodie things, too, so I thought it'd share it with you.
I went through the list, and checked off the items that I've done. Out of the 75, I checked off 57 items that I've done once or multiple times. But their list got me thinking of other things I'd add to the list, and I bet you've got some other things you'd add, too. Consider it a creative incentive to do some trip-planning!
Before I show you the list, I wanted to remind folks of two things you should do before the end of January:
- River trips! Pick dates for spring/summer river trips and get your applications submitted by Jan. 31. This is for getting permits to float the Main Salmon, Middle Fork Salmon, Selway River and Hells Canyon of the Snake. Go to recreation.gov to apply to reserve trip dates.
- Make reservations for your favorite camp site, cabin or fire lookout before they all get taken. Go to recreation.gov to reserve federal camp sites, cabins and lookouts. Go to the Idaho State Parks web site to reserve their camp sites, cabins or yurts.
