Headed to Duck Valley
Well let’s see, I think I got a bit ahead of myself at the last post so let’s catch up.
My plan was to visit with Joe at his tire shop which is also his home.
I pulled into his driveway to find Joe working on tire stuff in his yard, because that’s what he does.
I shot the bull with Joe for about an hour and bummed some drinking water to fill up my bottles than headed for the Tribe’s store but stopped at the Tribe’s computer lab to do my internet stuff on the way.
Headed to the Town of Bruneau
I drove into Bruneau and checked the library for internet and it was open and good. I checked email and started driving around exploring. I drove down a road that went near the Bruneau River and stopped here in a day use area.
I checked a couple other places but the ones didn’t find any of them that I cared to put my boat in as the bodies of water were huge, more for power boats.
Looking for a camp
Of course big ranches mean private land so things were tight in this area as far as public access to stuff so I headed back out a road into the desert to look for a camp.
I remembered a rock quarry I passed on the way in so I drove back to it and pulled in as the sun was going down. After checking it out, I felt boxed in and decided to look some more so decided to go for an evening drive to look around.
Which way to go
Right now I’m trying to decide which way to go from here. Back to the reservation or across the desert through the air forces bombing range to the town of Jarbidge or what. I’m fairly close to Jarbidge so I’m leaning towards that way which I will likely do.
Either way, I’ll go back to Bruneau tomorrow and post this blog before heading out.
Nice day and the night’s weather is improving going above freezing for a spell which is nice. Otherwise the days are sunny and clear.
Next morning in Bruneau
I’ll post this blog and check email and weather then I’m headed to the Jarbidge area through the bombing range called Three Creeks Road.
Not sure where the next post will be from, maybe Jarbidge or back at the reservation.
