Hockey and Hiking

A little high sticking and some early fall color for a well-rounded weekend


High Sticking

OK, ladies, for those of you who have ever wanted an excuse to kick some serious butt, the Boise Women's Hockey Association is hosting its fall hockey clinic on Sunday, Sept. 13, at Idaho IceWorld.

Strap on some gear and skates from 2:30-5:15 p.m. and learn why so many women are taking to the ice. Just $10 covers the cost and includes some coaching and skate rental. For more info, visit or call Dominique Tardif at 208-781-0452 or e-mail

It's Fall?

As fall begins to encroach on our summer, it's time to take a walk to catch some early season color. Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area and the Boise National Forest are hosting a fall nature walk beginning at the Shafer Butte picnic area (Mores Mountain trailhead) on Saturday, Sept. 12.

No registration is required although there is a $5 per vehicle fee to park at Shafer Butte. The walk will be roughly two hours beginning at 10 a.m., and hikers need to bring their own sturdy shoes, sunscreen, water and snacks.

Call the BNF Supervisor's Office at 208-373-4100 for more info.
