Where did you go? Don't recognize the area.

That's right off the road at the narrows.  Coal Mt Road.  Not all the way down where all the trash is.  It's the first turn to the left.  You can see the highway from where I shoot.  Now do you recognize it?

I ended the year by leading an unofficial mini-appleseed yesterday...3 hours in 19 degrees with a strong wind and 82% humidity...Brrrrr....The good folks that attended were cold but happy....The essence of Appleseed.

21 showed up this morning for a "Frozen Chosin" here in Idaho Falls.  Bright and sunny, mild breeze and 0 degrees.  Course of fire - 4 minutes for an 80 yard run to firing position - 7 rounds ball from 1911A1 at F target at 40 yards, 16 rounds from M1 Garand at F target at 100 yds, full silhouette at 200 yards and full silhouette at 300 yards.  Botched my pistol shots - 2 hits of 7 shots, but with NPOA, breath control and trigger squeeze, "cleaned" my rifle shots prone in the snow with 6/6 at 300, and 5/5 at both 100 and 200. :))
The British learned to dread the frequent appearances of this dire rider at unexpected points along the route of their passage, for his aim was true, and the economical principles in which he was trained forbade his wasting powder and ball.

Bad Idea to get between a Momma Bear and her Cubs.

Not too far from my house actually. Should have called, I would have met you there.
