2002 Jim and Sandra Schmid hike in the Owyhee Desert south of Boise, ID

Sandra and I moved from Maryland to Boise, ID when I went back to work for the US Forest Service. I was assigned to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Owyhee Field Office. I worked on Travel Management Plans. Lots of traveling checking out trails and roads and GPSing many of them. On the weekends Sandra and I would go for hikes. I enjoyed showing her and our two dogs – Dezi and Blue the beautiful country I was working in.
