Every time I’m chagrined about living in the most isolated capital city in the continental United States, I remind myself what a privilege it is to be in such close proximity to an unparalleled abundance of nature’s grandeur. The Sawtooths contain so many trails I’ve yet to explore. Nearby Stanley, Idaho also has the distinction of being one of the coldest places in the States during winter. Plus, all that is Sun Valley is not far away either. On this particular stretch of road, the boundaries of fence and mountain range merge into undeniable eye candy. In the fall, it’s possible to watch Salmon swimming upriver to Stanley Lake. It’s safe to say, the day captured above was a good day.
