Nature trips

A fantastic road trip for all nature has to offer, except if the road is wet. Today under the rain we were force to use the 4x4 on the main road for many many miles and still had some very close calls at a very low speeds. This road trip turned into a very dangerous odisey. I would like to try it again in full summer or early fall to get the best out of it, but for sure I will never drive it again in April or May.

This is a beautiful drive with plenty of opportunities to explore, camp, and hike on the side. The Uplands are different from any other ecosystem in Southern Idaho and fall is a great time to drive it, as the cottonwood trees are changing color.
