Yesterday we headed north to the Sawtooth Wilderness a few hours away from Boise. Jeff’s friend Kelly graciously took the day off work to show us around.
This is what it looked like as we passed Lucky Peak dam.
The weather has improved so much since race day.
As we approached the Sawtooths, they were still shrouded in clouds.
Our first stop: Stanley, Idaho – stepping-off point for the National Forest and Wilderness areas around and the only spot on the road with wireless and food!
The dogs got a romp first after the long drive.
And then a casual lunch.
And a trip to the ranger station to ask about the trails.
Stanley with the Stanley sign.
The clouds were starting to clear over the mountains.
Finally, it was time to hike and find ourselves some snow!
First water stop
The real fun started when we found the snow line.
The characteristic jagged peaks of the Sawtooths
Snow is fun fun fun!
I have to laugh that Kelly took this picture of Jeff and I, and Thatcher is having a little fun with Max in the background.
Happy dogs are my dogs in snow
Stanley is always making friends
Who needs a sled for downhill sledding?
At least someone in the family is swimming. After all, it’s a whole week of no swimbikerun for me.
This rare junk food snack attack is for Jen Harrison (aka Miss Daisy) and D. The Reese’s Pieces aren’t quite M&Ms and the Coke isn’t quite Diet Coke but I thought of you ladies nonetheless.
Overall not a bad day for the dogs after being patient through pre-race preparations and race day. I’m so glad I got to explore more of Idaho as well!
Love the video of the "kids" playing in the snow! How beautiful!
That's like a warm-up, hardly an attack! :P
What a great way to spend post-race. Love it. See ya in a couple days!!
Awesome!!! I always make Glenn look at the dog pics. So great. And it is so beautiful there.
What a hoot - loves those goofy snow dogs!
Glad you are having the chance to enjoy ID more while there. Last year when I drove from UT to MT, I just drove through ID and didn't stop at all except for gas & restrooms. Love the mountains and looking at snow (not feeling the cold, though :-)
Great pics. Looks like fun!
It looks so beautiful out there!! Glad you got to enjoy the state while you are there. It definitely looks as though the dogs had a blast in the snow. The pictures are hilarious!!
lucky dogs :-) I'd have four little fur buckets with hair down to the ground if I had the time to take care of it. They love the cold weather too...
LOL LOVE the snow pics!!!! I'll have to make my way to ID with Athena one day. I think she'd have fun in the high country and she love love loves snow!
shanti and miko are jealous... they LOOOOVE idaho! my in laws are up in CdA, complaining about all of the bikes at the moment! but it is beautiful country, especially when there is snow on the ground!
have i mentioned lately that i am in love with max (what can i say, dorky boys are my type!) :)
have a great time up there!!
How is it that you can go hiking a couple of days after an Iron Man, and I can barely get off the couch after a day of sitting on the couch?
I love the pictures! Mad humper, niceee!
You sound like you're moving about just fine.
