Tuesday September 26, 2023 Riddle Ranch Idaho
When I returned from exploring later in the day, I ran into them as they were getting ready to leave. They were from Petaluma, a city close to where I live and were hunting birds of some sort. I shot the bull with them.
That was the plan for the day. I would explore some of the roads out here. The ranch area is huge and there are roads, but not nearly enough of them for the size of the place. I soon learned that the best way one could explore this place is with a horse and even that would take a long time. It’s been a cattle ranch for a long time and it’s all still run mostly with horses.
Took this road
I saw a road that headed south towards the Reservation, so I took it to see if I could get all the way through to the Reservation as the map showed it did,…………But.
The road going south was iffy at best. Sometimes the road was on the map but not on the ground and so it went.
The road that the map showed I needed to take, wasn’t there anymore so I took the other one that went sorta the right way, but it was getting worse fast. It got rocky just past this area, so I wisely turned around and went back the way I’d come, just to be safe.
I didn’t really have a plan for tonight’s camp spot, so I went back to the hay field I was at this morning, chatting with the two hunters on the way there.
I’m not sure about plans for tomorrow. I’ll likely go back to the Reservation to gas up and post blogs and then figure it out from there.
