Great weekend in the Mountains of Idaho

We just got back from 3 days in the mountains of Idaho. On Wednesday evening while bringing our Coachmen Apex 215 RBX out from the side of our house, I managed to break a bone in my left foot.. After she-who-must-be obeyed got off work on Thursday (with my foot in a walking boot) we headed north from our House in Meridian Idaho. We arrived at our campsite at dusk, with some help we got set up for the weekend. I have lived in Idaho now for about 40 years and never really realized how beautiful the Sawtooth Mountains are. Even though I was hampered by the foot we explored the area and took almost 150 pictures. (thanks to the digital camera I am not broke) I hope you enjoy some the pictures for our campsite at Little Redfish Lake and Redfish Lake. I have to repeat, what a view we had from Chinook Bay Campground site number 9 on Little Red Fish Lake. We were to early so see the Chinook Salmon returning from the Pacific Ocean entering the Lake system in mass but Anita while in a Kayak on Little Red Fish Lake saw some as she put it HUGH fish....Yes the water was that clear! Oh by the way got into see the Podiatrist on Monday morning after returning and he put my foot in a walking cast for 4 weeks.

The warmest temp that I saw was 77.6 deg. Nights were down into the upper 30's and low 40's perfect...where we were at the elevation is about 6400 feet.

It is a beautiful area. I was in Glacier View last July. Another place for next year is across Stanley Lake. But I do not recommend Stanley Lake Campground; too noisy and the host could care less. However, on the road to the campground are dozens of great dispersed sites.

Thanks for the pictures! Awesome!! The Sawtooths IMO are one of the most beautiful places in NA. How could you live in Idaho for 40 years and not enjoy this most beautiful state in the US. If you can manage, go to McCAll during the week when no one is there. It is another beautiful area in Idaho. I could name many others. Although I've lived in the Midwest for 40 years, I get to Idaho every year. Will be at moms and my sister's in November. Cecil Andrus coined the motto: "What America Was!" Ssshhh, don't tell anybody. Let everyone else go to Colorado or Arizona. Let's keep Idaho to ourselves.

Beautiful photos! We've been there twice and it's high on our list of places to visit again. Add fall color into your photos and truly, it's one of the most beautiful places!!
