Shafer Butte Fun Run

The first time I heard of the Shafer Butte 50 was a month or two ago on a trail run with my friend Ryan.  He told me that the challenging 50 mile course has been a tradition in the local running community dating back to the 1980s.

Cervidae to Heinen Linkup

When I moved to Idaho in 2011, the first thing I did was get a copy of "Idaho, A Climbing Guide" by Tom Lopez.  I scoured this book, many internet sites, and lots of topo maps looking for potential adventures close to my new home.  The closest steepish named mountain that I could find was Cervidae Peak.
