Being half way up a cargo net in the mountains isn't going to hold back outdoor director Lance from taking your call. Your thoughts, comments, and questions REALLY matter to us.

Did you know you can sign up for backpacking trips through the city? Advanced backpacking trips spend 5 days in the wilderness. The trips are intended to take people with some experience and help them through the process of planning and carrying out a more ambitious adventure than they might otherwise take. Look for another round next August.

#Treasureclues is starting up tomorrow morning at 10AM. There's over $500 of prizes in this free event. Let's break down those rules:
1) When you find a hidden container only take one prize per group or family.
2) You can take a photo or write down each hidden clue, but please leave the laminated clue inside the container for the next group and hide it the same as you found it.
3)Take a selfie at the hiding spot so when you bring the fake dollar prize claim ticket to the Community Recreation Center (CRC) on 144 Wilson Ave to swap it for the real voucher prize you can prove you didn't cheat (they'll ask to see the selfie as proof).
4) Try to be stealthy, we want this to be as hard for the next group as it was for you.

There are 5 prizes at the first spot, then 4, 3, 2, then all four clues at those locations lead to the grand prize worth $360. You'll want all four to figure the riddle. If you find the grand prize hiding spot after someone else claims it, still take a selfie and you can get a free shirt each at the CRC.

TREASURE CLUES is a one day only riddle solving scavenger hunt being set up around Pocatello. On Saturday 17th at 10, 11, 12, and 1pm we will facebook post a puzzle leading to one of four clues somewhere in town. They will be inside waterproof containers camouflaged into their surroundings. Take note of the four clues and you'll have what you need to find the final grand prize worth over $100. But it's a race, only one can claim the grand prize. All prizes are discount or free entries to outdoor recreation events or rentals.

A mass start of all divisions and distances at the June Fun Run at Highland High School. Walkers, runners, joggers, and sprinters alike took off together as we tried organizing things a little differently this time to mix it up.
