Saturday we left Palisades lake and came to a spot on the Lost river just outside Mackay. Idaho. Our friend told us about a camp spot that is right on the river with lots of trees. We couldn’t get the rig in a spot on the river, but we found a great grassy spot with nice trees.
Saturday night we took a back road that goes from here, down in to Sun Valley. We have an art show in Sun valley this weekend and wanted to see if we could get there from here, and find a place to park. No, we can’t drive the trailer there. There is one spot in the canyon were the road is steep and narrow. Which is too bad, the rest of the road was great. But we think we found a place to park. We just have to drive down and around to get there. Anyway, the drive was amazing. What a beautiful area this is, and the canyon we went through was gorgeous.
We stopped beside a small river. The water was so clear and their were Indian Paintbrush everywhere.
As we were headed back to the trailer, we saw a herd of elk. They were beautiful. I have seen a lot of elk, but the color on these guys was amazing. And the babies were adorable. It was 9 pm when I took these, so the sun was down and they were pretty far away. Not the best pics ever.
The next day we set off to find a place to hike. Not a hard thing around here. We ended up at a trailhead for Mt. Borah, which is the tallest peak in Idaho. Not wanting to climb 4000 ft in 4 miles, we headed off into the woods instead. We prefer to go our own way anyway, that’s how we usually hike. Wandering in the woods. The dogs had a blast, we haven’t been on a good wander in a while.
We stopped for a lunch break under a pine tree and suddenly Torrey took off. I yelled stop, which she does so well now. She was after this baby bird that had come out of the tree. The mama was not happy, dive bombing Torrey and chirping up a storm. The baby made it to this branch, and of course I had to get photos. I think he looks kinda grumpy. LOL
We plan on leaving this spot today for the one we found above Sun Valley. Hopefully we will still have service there.
There are tons more photos on my Flickr and 500px pages of both these places. Links are in the sidebar.
