Went hunting Saturday and were coming down Deer Creek, when we came across a big orange rock crusher over the bank. They had the road blocked off and were working at the site, so try to avoid this area. The truck was on a trailer at the Y near Swiftwater RV.

I spent last Saturday afternoon amidst happy chaos at the youth zone at Kamiah Barbecue Days. I volunteered at the obstacle course, a large brightly colored inflatable feature with two lanes. Kids of all ages attempted to leap from one large ball to the next landing on their feet, their bellies, however they could manage, making their way across the course, then climbing out and shooting down the slide at the far end. My role, trying to keep some semblance of order, was an interesting challenge.
