Passage of time

The South Fork of the Boise River cuts deep into prehistory. Its short stretch between Anderson Ranch and Arrowrock Reservoirs marks the most scenic canyons around Boise, I think.

 

As usual for this direction, I followed the rocky tracks behind Micron along the Oregon Trail wagon route from the early 1800s — a route to the American Dream now marked by discarded mattresses and shot out TVs.

 

At first I hit the rough two-track to Bonneville Point at KTM 500 speeds. The 1290 seemed to be soaking it up well until the top luggage box I was taking on a test run popped off (I hadn’t secured it correctly). Then I tipped over while turning around on the rolly rock hill where the box landed and scraped up more things. It was not a proud moment.

 

So that’s how this ride started.
