We will be spending the 23rd and 31st in Boise, ID they are both drive days. Those continuing the combined backpack trip will be heading to the Eagle Cap backpack on the 1st . This will be a dog friendly backpack at leaders discretion; my dogs will be going. Signing up or expressing interest will not guarantee you a spot. Participants will be screened by the leader, before joining the group. This is a new area to me; information has been gathered from local area experts, maps and guidebooks.
