ALL IN A DAY’S WORK AT GEERTSON CREEK
As much as many of us want to curl up by a fireplace, eat and ultimately hibernate during winter, the work still must go on; and if you can’t beat winter, we recommend you join it… figuratively that is. Check out these amazing winter photos captured by Salmon Field Office Staff Lacey Whitehouse near Geertson Creek.
Geertson Lake sits nestled beneath Center Mountain, which rises over 10,000 feet along the Continental Divide. The BLM Salmon Field Office manages a cabin at the headwaters of Geertson Creek, located within a ¼ mile of this high mountain lake. While the road to access the cabin is impassible during winter months, Salmon Forestry Tech Whitehouse, and forest service counterpart, braved the elements, skiing just over five miles on their weekend to check on the shelter and complete some winter maintenance.
Permission is needed to cross private property to get to the cabin so if you do decide to brave the weather, call the Salmon Field Office at 208-756-5400, before heading out.
