Elk-viewing sleigh ride at the Points Ranch is a real treat! Reserve a trip soon!

There were some nice bulls in the herd ...

Quinn had a close visitor too!

Hi all,

So glad that we're finally getting more snow in the mountains! Hurray!

My outdoor tip this week is all about an elk-viewing sleigh ride at the Points Ranch in Donnelly. Wendy and I took our kids on the sleigh ride over the holidays, and it was a great experience! Be sure to make reservations ahead of time and dress warm!

See my article in the Idaho Statesman Outdoors section on Tuesday, Jan. 9.

Contact the Points Ranch for more information.

I also wanted to make sure that people saw the plea by Ridge to Rivers trail managers to STAY OFF MUDDY TRAILS! in Chadd Cripe's outdoor column today in the Statesman. People are brutalizing the trails right now. Give the trails a rest, PLEASE!

The headline was, "Foothills Trails getting hammered."

Best alternatives are the all-season trail in Harrison Hollow, the Boise River Greenbelt in Boise or Eagle, or go xc skiing or snowshoeing at Bogus Basin, Idaho City, McCall or Stanley. 

Enjoy the new snow in the mountains this weekend! I'm heading for McCall to ski Brundage!
