Today was a BLAST! Little mud but a whole lot of fun. You guys sure missed out! Pictures to follow soon.
Thanks George for leading the way today. Can't wait for February ride, God willing.

It was a great day to be out in the outdoors. No rain, little wind, a bit cool, but perfect for hiking some. Never ran into any bad mud just a little from time to time. Two vehicles showed for the adventure. Thanks Hiko for tagging along.

Images are broken but I really want to see them! I'm getting my new wheels and tires mounted right now. Finally, for real, I should legitimately be ready for the next venture.

Just a reminder of the next trip later this month.

Date: February 27
Time: 6:30 am
Meet Place: Lowes parking lot 305 W Overland Rd, Meridian.
Destination: Jordan Craters/Owyhee Canyon
Estimated Duration: Full day
Distance/Round Trip: 250.00 miles, 6.18 hours drive time estimated

First stop Cow Lake recreation area. Small camp spot to check out maybe for future use. Then if you are ready for some wheeling adventures it is time to see the Owyhee Canyon. Of course to see it proper you must first traverse the road down into the canyon. And what will we see when we get down there? Well some hearty souls once lived down here in the early 1900's and they left us some places to check out. Then, if time permits, on to Jordan Craters, a cool spot to walk around and see different lava flows and of course the crater itself.

Plan on a good long day. Trip calculations come in at just a little over 6 hours of drive time, this includes driving into Jordan Valley for a fuel stop. Most of the trip is scenic and/or fun. Good tires are required for the Canyon road. I lost two street tires when I went in last time. Not fun..... A understanding of basic off road driving skills will be required for this stretch of road. Weather at this time could be good or bad and roads could have snow or mud. Come prepared for what ever is out there.

Great pictures! Idaho never ceases to amaze me with the diversity of her natural wonders.

New tires performed incredibly. Uphill, through two feet deep trail ruts of snow and ice during much of the route, the Cherokee had no problem crushing its way to the top.

Looks good. I think you will like those tires a lot. I had them on my Grand Cherokee and loved them.

Thought I had better clear things up a bit. There are two Lowe's on Overland Rd. The meeting place is at Lowes parking lot 305 W Overland Rd. That is the Lowe's in Meridian not in Boise. It is a big parking lot so look for the yellow Jeep on the eastern (Meridian Rd) side of the parking lot. I will be leaving at 7:00 and it will be a good long day. The weather is looking really good for a day out in the desert.
