Camel's Back Park

A large plot of land in northwest Boise is managed by the City, but not all of it is owned by the City. The actual park, Camel's Back, is mainly a large grassy area with a playground and tennis courts. The foothills beyond the park are owned by private individuals who graciously let everbody and their brother tromp across their land. Very generous, I say. And we take full advantage of it.

Looking out across the valley

I call this Gold Hill because the dirt is completely orange and gold colored. There are only two visible sections of land that I have seen in Camel's Back that have this color, and this one is definitely darker. Not sure which mineral it is.
