On Labor Day, we drove over to Driggs, Idaho to pick up a friend and her son. Then we headed over to Darby Canyon to hike up to The Wind Cave. We'd been there about 2-3 years ago and had talked about going back but just now made the time. It was a stroke of good luck that we had extra company with us this time.
It was a beautiful day for a hike.
|Jack happy to be a long for the trip.|
|Tank and his new buddy Summit. Tank didn't realize that other dogs could run fast, he's used to Jack.|
The last time we were up here it was earlier in the season and this area where the dogs are playing was a pool of water at the bottom of a small waterfall. Because there was more water last time, we assumed the dogs would have plenty of options for drinking, luckily our friend had a handy doggy water bottle. We'll be better prepared next time.
|Looking up into the cave.|
The water was coming out with such volume last time, we never attempted to climb into the cave.
|Making our way in.|
It's about just over 2.5 miles to the cave and about an 1800 elevation gain.
