21April2014_2g_Sun-Valley-Trip_Sawtooth-Mountains_From-GalenaMonday after Easter. Time for a day trip. Highs today in Boise supposed to be in the high 70’s. It was. Robin, Buddy [- our American Eski – and I escaped to a 360 mile round trip journey from Boise to Mountain Home, Camas Prairie Centennial Marsh (which is always interesting), Fairfield, Hailey, Sun Valley, Galena Summit, Stanley, Idaho City and back to Boise. In through the flatlands then on to the mountains. It was a great little trip with no time restrictions. Left-Click any of the photos to see enlarged. The one here is of the Sawtooth Range from Galena Summit. Is that snow? Yup! Enjoy the photos and our trip.

The Sawtooth Mountains from the Fairfield area. We will eventually be on the other side of them. There is a photo below.

There she is! A neat and interesting place in Fairfield where the wives can take their husbands and have the establishment "watch them" while the ladies go shopping or whatever. The only cost is the food and coffee that the husbands eat/drink. Interesting concept.

One must always partake in the local cuisine.

As\ Charlie Pride once said, "It's burgers and fries and .....", oops! No cherry pie at The Wrangler.

As Charlie Pride once said, “It’s burgers and fries and …..”, oops! No cherry pie at The Wrangler. The burger was really good. Well prepared and not cooked to death. That might be our “stopping place” in Fairfield. We recommend it, if you are passing by.

The Lodge at Sun Valley. A beautiful place.

Headed towards Galena Summit the Avalanche Alley!

Headed towards Galena Summit and then Avalanche Alley! And yes, we did see the results of a big avalanche. It’s not pretty. We can now visualize what the folks in Oso, Washington are going through.

Buddy and I stop for a romp in the snow. Galena Summit or close to it.
