Deer, Elk & Fox
Fording the river is only advised during low
water (late season) conditions, usually late July to November.
Majority of roads into Atlanta close during winter save for one
route which is sketchy at best most winters especially given the
large amount of deaths that occur on this road during the summer
Plenty of nearby National Forest campgrounds and primitive sites to choose from.
A cold day meant that I wasn't fording the river. From my vantage
point I could see some small, shallow soakers along the river's
edge, just below the source. Looks pretty sweet, but the access
window is small unless you like icy cold, late season river fords.
We just got to look at the steamy mound across the river because of how
high the water was. Apparently, the only time that you'll see a pool is
in the late season because of the river level. Ninemeyer is located right
next to a campground of the same name, and is also located near a bunch
of other hot springs and campsites along the Middle Fork Boise River
