With cold mornings to warm afternoons and bright yellows, oranges, and reds scattered through the hills, Fall in Idaho is a magical time! Rutting season is upon us with large game such as moose, elk, and deer in full antler. Keep an eye on the river valleys and hills for these elusive creatures. Foggy mornings are common this time of year, with intermittent rain falling mostly in the surrounding mountains. October is usually the last month to explore the dirt roads that wind through our local forests as snow already coats the peaks of the Tetons.
This week's pictures were taken in the hills east of Ammon as well as along the Snake River behind R-Mountain. I put Phoebe (my Rav4) to the test in the hill country as fog and rain had made the dirt road nearly impassable. There is a lesser known route to Fall Creek Falls accessed from these hills, which too will be impassable soon.
This time of year is truly beautiful! Any road you take will lead you to adventure. Below are some snapshots into the majesty of our wonderful state, enjoy!
