Wild Gift backpacking in the Boulder and White Cloud Mountains of Idaho

Joe St.Onge just returned from a 14 day traverse of the Boulder/White Cloud Mountains in Central Idaho with a special group of young leaders from the Wild Gift. While forest fires raged in the mountains near our route, we were fortunate to find clear skies as the so called “doughnut hole” followed the group through its entire trek. Many rugged passes were crossed and beautiful alpine basins and lakes visited on this primarily off trail route through the spectacular Idaho backcountry. Please check out our friends at the wildgift.org to find out more about this unique program and these amazing young entrepreneurs with a mission.

Fathers and daughters hiking in the White Cloud range of Idaho.

SVT guide Joe St.Onge spent 5 days traversing the White Cloud Mountains with a group of fathers/daughters. Joe taught the group the tricks of traversing rugged mountains off trail, climbing peaks along the way in a spectacular setting. The group taught Joe what it means to be an awesome father to wonderful 13 year old girls, a goal joe had for his two little girls… Check out the pictures of a snow slide into Headwall Lake, wild fun in a wild place!
