The Ranch Run

Boise, ID

Got a bit nostalgic today about our old neighborhood today…

I called my favorite running trail The Ranch Run because it ended at remnants of an old ranch house. It was four miles from our house, and there were times I used to run and/or hike it a couple of times per week.

There was a wildfire on it today. Thankfully the crews got it out quickly, so not too much damage was done.


I love this picture because it shows most of the three mile trail along the water’s edge.

Sophie loved doing the Ranch Run! When she was young, she found every fresh dung dropping and would roll endlessly in the poop de jour… One day eau de deer, essence of elk the next, and her personal favorite of coyote cologne as often as possible.
