Ski Shots?No score for this post

Not many this year so we've been taking advantage of the "spring" conditions here in the valley. The desert and foothills have been mostly dry this year allowing for a very early hiking season. Last year at this time I was chopping ice dams off of roofs.
Blacks Creek hike
Nothing like a hot dip after a hike. Givens Hot Springs
Surprisingly, Table Rock is dry this winter
Highland Valley trail
104 degrees and jets! See a theme here?

I was up in the Ketchum area on Saturday, snowshoeing the Parker Gulch trail. I did not make it too far up the gulch, only to about 7400 feet. I was just out enjoying the day rather than trying to reach an objective. The south facing slopes had almost no snow on them once you got off the trail and the north facing slopes had wind blown snow that was probably about 1 foot deep.

Thanks for posting.
But your google photos are not appearing. And I really want to see them.

Oh no, they appear fine on my screen. Does anyone have any suggestions? I used google photos, copied the photo address, then I added the ?.jpg to the end of the link. Finally I took the "s" off of the https. Is there anything else I need to do? I did this in Chrome. I will take a look after work and try to fix it later, sorry about that.

fixing them, but I can't even view them in Google... is it a permissions thing perhaps (i.e. you have to make them public or something)?

Good stuff Scott, thanks for sharing. I've been to the Bruneau Canyon, but missed out on the Roberson East trail. Now I have a great reason for a return trip!

Thanks Dave! It's a short hike but worth the visit in my opinion.

Thanks for the extra effort, Scott.
Great pics, well worth it.
I once tried to find the Roberson Trail, but had to give up because my 4-year-old (she's 25 now) was in the truck with me and I was afraid of getting stuck out there. After seeing your pictures, I need to try again.

I also had trouble finding the access road in the past, but it looks like the BLM may have worked on the road within the past couple of years. They also put up metal signs that lead you right to the trailhead. Just take the Clover Three Creek road south until you see the turnoff for the Bruneau Canyon overlook. About a half mile before reaching the overlook, there is a metal sign indicating the way to the trailhead. It is a two track that cuts across the desert for probably around 7 or 8 miles. Definitely avoid it after a rainstorm, but other than that it's not too bad. A little rocky just before the trailhead. I have a newer 4Runner still with the original tires and they made it out OK.

Nice report John, I was just thinking about the Rubies the other day. I have heard of terminal cancer couloir but I am not familiar with where it is in the canyon. I am curious how far the road was open relative to the Camp Lamoille and Thomas Canyon Campground areas.

Scott, though there was a snow floor, we drove up past Thomas Canyon Campground. It looked pretty well traveled.
