If there's one thing my husband absolutely hates, it's when I go into the Foothills without my phone. Between how klutzy I am and the wildlife out there, he's just got this overwhelming fear something bad is going to happen to me.
This is only about 80 miles from Boise up north and well worth the trip. An easy day hike or you can pack in and out and stay a while! The views were serene and the day was made by taking this jaunt outdoors.
