Idaho – part five

We started off the day with about a 2.5 hour drive to Boise in order to drop off puppy at summer camp (aka Camp Bow Wow) so that he could make new friends and learn new crafts. No, but seriously, we were planning on doing some kayaking and puppy needed a place to crash for a few days for us to be able to do that; so Camp Bow Wow it was. After dropping him off we hit up the local Whole Foods to stock up on meal fixins.

We drove another 2 hours to Hailey, Idaho and stopped at Sun Valley Brewing for a late lunch, one beer for me and a couple for hubby. Both the food and the beers were just okay, nothing special. I had already reserved our campsite for the night ahead of time. We would be camping at Glacier View Campground at Redfish Lake. We didn’t get there til early evening. We knew that if we wanted to get on the water with our kayaks we’d have to move fast and set up camp later.

Everyone had left the lake for the day so we had it pretty much to ourselves. We dropped the boats in for the first time this year and we had a blast. The sun was setting and it was the perfect temperature.




By the time we got back to camp we had a lot of setting up to do and the sun was setting fast. Neither one of us were really hungry so we just snacked a bit and cracked open some beers. As soon as we did, it started raining. We quickly set up the rain shelter, pulled both chairs underneath, and tried to keep dry. I snacked on a concoction of beans, rice, peppers, onions, and cilantro. I had a pale ale from Coda Brewing Company in Colorado. We sat under the shelter while it rained and read Indian Creek Chronicles by Peter Fromm. We’d been reading the book every night and intended to finish it by the end of the trip (we did). We when had a small break in the rain a deer walked along the south edge of our camp. I freaking love nature!


The sunset was amazing that night. It reminded us of the Grateful Dead song “Fire on the Mountain” because it truly did look like the mountains were on fire.
