Happy Hiking: Boulder Lake

While in McCall, on two different occasions, the locals mentioned that they hiked to Boulder Lake this week.  They were excited to report there was minimal snow at this juncture, Memorial Day Weekend.  They seemed so enthusiastic, that I added Boulder Lake, located in the Payette National Forest to my hiking list.

Happy Hiking!

Happy Hiking: Bear Basin

Bear Basin Nordic Center

Bear Basin is a Nordic center located in McCall, Idaho.  In the summer, it is a popular mountain biking and hiking area, though more so for mountain biking.  After having driven a decent amount to get to trailheads recently, I decided I wanted a place with an easy hike that was easily reachable.  Bear Basin met both of these objectives.
