July 2017: Castle Rock State Park, Almo, ID

I hesitate to publish this short slideshow as it features two little-known favorite places that I prefer stay that way. Castle Rock State Park, in Almo, Idaho is known to climbers worldwide. In fact, the guidebook, Castle Rocks Rock Climbing, by Tony Calderone, includes: 112 sport routes, 227 traditional routes, seven toprope routes and 10 boulder problems. I don’t know what all of those things are, but I know this is a great climbing location. It also happens to be a great hiking location and has a lodge in the park.

When you make a reservation, you get the entire lodge, including a master bedroom with a queen-size bed, a flat screen TV/DVD and a reading room/den. There's a TV room with a sleeper sofa, a third bedroom with a double/twin bunk bed, and a fourth room with a twin bed, desk and private deck. Other rooms include a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious bathroom with tub/shower, a dining area and living room with a propane fireplace. And it's not expensive.

If that's not enough and you want to camp in one of the most beautiful campsites I've ever seen (outside Alaska), you can visit The City of Rocks National Reserve, which features more than 1,000 traditional and bolt-protected climbing routes. California Trail wagon trains of the 1840s and 1850s traveled through the area and over Granite Pass into Nevada. Names and initials of emigrants written in axle grease are still visible on Register Rock and ruts from wagon wheels also can be seen in some of the rocks. The City of Rocks is also the site of Window Arch, one of the most beautiful and easily accessible natural arches in the region.
