We are traveling with a friend, Jane, who purchased a book that describes a good many back road adventures using a Jeep. And this book gives very good detailed instructions of where these sights are to be found. One of them is Bruneau Canyon Look out. So off we went the next day after a good night's rest.
Following the directions, we went down a canyon wall into the nicest, sweetest valley. The present owner of the ranch still ranches and farms the land. We didn't see anyone though. Then it was up the opposite canyon wall onto the flats. Following the instructions in the book, which said to follow the path to a y-junction, take the right hand path and follow it to the playa, then follow the trail to cow path and then across country. We never did find the cow path!!! LOL
But we did find the canyon overlook. Amazing. Well worth the trip in.
Coming out, saw some dust. Turned out to be a pickup with federal government workers checking out the sage hen habitat. Told them that it was nice to know that we weren't the only ones out there. The driver took a look at friend's Jeep and said it was nice to see a vehicle that could pull them out if they got stuck!!!!!!!!!!! LOL
It was well worth the trip in and out. A beautiful sight that most people cannot get to.
Our next day at the campground was a down day, which we took advantage of.
