On Saturday, Carma and I went for a little hike in the foothills behind Hillside Jr. High to hide a series of seven letterboxes that I had made. The weather was perfect for our activity and our dogs enjoyed getting away from the snow and ice at home. We had a lot of fun hiding the boxes, though there isn't much to hide them in up there but sagebrush. The foothills provide a nice view of Boise with the snow covered Owyhee Mountains in the background. We couldn't resist taking a couple of pictures.
