Hunting, Day One: No Deer

Writing a 7-page paper in 3 hours flat, combined with working late Friday night allowed me to take the weekend off! A nice break during this challenging project at work.

How better to spend my first day off in 10 days, than to don as much orange and red as I could and traipse around the Idaho wilderness with my husband?

It was really fun. And we hiked around a lot. But, we didn't get anything. In fact, we didn't even SEE anything. 'Cept a LOT of bear poop.

Gratuitous "big gun" shot. Would be better with an actual deer under his foot, but we'll take what we can get.

Huntin' picnic: turkey sandwiches on the tailgate.

J: OK, we're gonna pull over here and you can make samiches and we'll take a little break.

A: Why am I making samiches? You could make samiches, you know.

J: No, I can't.

A: Well why not?

J: I don't know. I don't make hunting samiches. Brad always makes hunting samiches.

A: Well heavens, I hope MY samiches can live up to BRAD'S samiches.

J: Yeah. Me too.

The way to a man's heart is through his stomach? Naw. I think it's through showing him your awesome truck driving skills. Keeping it at a steady 10 mph. While driving a standard transmission. IN HIKING BOOTS. For hours on end. Without driving off the cliff. Or fussing with the satellite radio.

Perhaps my best 'shot' of the day. ;) The South Fork of the Boise River at Arrowrock Reservoir, taken on our way home, in the last minutes of daylight, around 7 p.m.
