Kim and I decided to take a walk along Shafer Butte yesterday. Shafer Butte, which includes the Bogus Basin Ski Resort is about a 45 minute drive (16 miles of winding road) from downtown Boise.
It had been years since we had done this simple 2 mile hike and we had forgotten about the parking fee.
We'd also forgotten our wallets.
Luckily Kim asked the host and was told there is no penalty for not paying, no fine or ticketing involved. So, vowing to pay extra next time, we set off on our hike.
At an elevation of 6,600 ft fall has definitely arrived. The colors of the day were red and yellow.
It's a great hike; some uphill involved but not too strenuous and includes some gorgeous views.
Chelsea has always been smart enough to locate a little piece of shade while she waits for us to catch up.
