The summer is fast slipping away! There's only a couple of weeks left before school starts, so time is running short to get the kids and family out of town for some mountain adventure in our state's top scenic locations in SW Idaho -- Stanley and McCall.
For my outdoor tip this week, I'm recommending five kid-friendly hikes in these cool, high-elevation areas:
|4th of July Lake (courtesy panoramio.com)|
|Drew and Quinn take a breather on the way to Alpine Lake|
|Gorgeous basin you climb through to reach the lakes|
|Alpine Lake, the best spot for camping|
|Sawtooth Lake ... beautiful but not much flat space for camping|
|Steve and Drew at Snowslide Lake|
|Steep trail to Snowslide!|
|Drew catches a little brook trout|
|Huckleberry Trail, Ponderosa State Park|
There you have it!
