Break in the clouds

The small meadow at the bottom of the trail descent is chaotic, rutted and littered with white boulders unearthed by last year’s flood of Buffalo Creek, ongoing aftermath of the Pony Creek Complex fires that denuded the hills. Trees and rocks were dumped into the Boise River below, creating a temporary class V rapid out of the usual family float.¹
