My first out-of-California extended backpacking trip. I chose Idaho, 'cause you wouldn't.
About this blog
I'm not quite sure how I chose Idaho for my next backpacking trip - especially after considering Glacial and Denali as other potential destinations. Breaking down the circumstances around choosing the trip helps:
- Idaho is a less-publicized backpacking haven with the Sawtooth Mountains and Hell's Canyon within a few hours driving distance of Boise. - An old friend moved to Boise recently. He couch surfed my place so he offered to return the favor. - This is the best way to keep my mind off of being layed off from my job. - My plane ticket was only $131. - I hear there are a lot of Mormons in Idaho.
