Four Wheeling in Idaho

Monday was our first day for 4 Wheeling. Some people had ATV's and they and some of the others who didn't have Jeeps took one route and the Jeeps, which included us, took another route in basically the same area. A lot of trails, including the ones the leaders of the HOP had picked are still closed due to the winter weather. The owner of the campground also has property across the way and gave us permission to go through his land and so we headed up that way It goes up toward Sheep Mountain. The views were awesome.

                 Luckily someone had cut part of this tree that was laying across the road so we could slowly make our way through.

We stopped for lunch in a meadow and then made our way back down the mountain. The trip was not as challenging as our trips in the past years but we had a good time and enjoyed the scenery.

     I had made Beef Stew with wine and hoisin sauce in the crockpot before we left. We invited Tara and Ernie to join us. They are from the Dallas area. They have a ranch outside of town but haven't been there much this last year as they have been traveling the country. They brought biscuits and wine and so we enjoyed that and the stew over rice. We then went over to their site and had huckleberry ice cream and a little more wine and conversation. It was really warm even at night. Also it doesn't get dark until after 10:00 which we like.
