Did the Drive up to the Boise National Forest. Was really surprised just how many Trees was there. Driving to and through the mountains you can't really tell just how beautiful the the Boise Forest really is...!
Stayed a night at Macks Creek Park right in the Boise National Forest. $10 for a night wasn't bad at all. Road going in winds through the canyon along the river that is most definitely not a Creek, but docks from the camp site allow...More
Within a half an hour up State Highway 21 lies the Boise National Forest. There are many different areas and places to access. Idaho City, the first town in Idaho with quite a mining town history is on the route. The Boise River is accessible...More
Awesome views in Winter and spectacular sights to see while cruising thru this National Forest. Don't miss this trip from Horseshoe Bend to Idaho City. River adjacent to road is amazingly beautiful. Just make sure you drive carefully on winding roads, watch for wildlife, especially...More
We did a 1/2 marathon that started up at the Bogus Basin ski area and ran down through the forest. Just stunning views of the mountains. While the area right around the city is mostly desert brown, there are tons of pine trees and lots...More

Once you get into the forest and away from towns, there are no leash laws, except in organized Forest Service campgrounds. There are, however wolves in many areas of the forest so beware with your canines.
Our drive on HWY 84 through the southwestern edge of this lovely state has been perfect. Great highway system, a tailwind, and higher altitude helped us get the best gas mileage to date. The scenic vistas are not as spectacular as the ones we encountered during our drive through Utah, but interesting none the less. From the Hagerman Fossil Beds to the Snake River and canyon to the distant Boise National Forest, all have kept us busily Googling on our Ipad during the drive. We will be back in...More

What route are you taking? I'm not familiar with us 20 (we drove eastern Oregon north to south) but I do know us26. That's a nice drive via John Day Fossil Beds NM's but prob longer than us20. And remember, no self service at the Oregon fuel stations.. (unless that has changed). Tet
