Plans refuse to be realized today. Confused by a wrong mileage in our guide, we fail to find the first trailhead we look for, even walking half a mile up a dirt road to make sure. Left with less time we try a shorter hike, but even after starting at the right trailhead on the highway, we go off route. Still, this is a nice sample of the high grassy mountain country north of Boise, and we enjoy the route we end up on. A big rattlesnake in the high grass keeps us on our toes on the descent.
