Sept 5-7: Llama Uber Driver
The smoky conditions were so bad at the end of the White Cloud trip, that Charlotte and Reuben had had enough and left the trek on Sept 5th. With a truck and horse trailer, I retrieve them and 3 llamas (Timber, Milton and Russell) for a 15 hour road trip returning the llamas to Idaho Falls and the hikers to Ketchum/Sun Valley. Being a gentleman and grateful not to be hiking through heat and smoke, Reuben did most of the driving!
Louise and Bob head for the Boulders together with Apple and Fred.
Thick smoke and unhealthy air quality lift for the beginning of the Pioneer Traverse. For the Pioneers, we are joined by the Outdoor Idaho PBS TV crew for a day and one-half of filming as part of the December Special on these iconic mountains.
