The Stories We Could Tell

Ketchum/Sun Valley, ID

What a beautiful part of our country! Who knew Idaho could be so mountainous and scenic? We really enjoyed our visit to Ketchum and Sun Valley.

Here’s some of what we did:
*Farmer’s Market in Hailey – made the Santa Barbara Farmer’s Markets seem huge, but pretty charming nonetheless!
*Outdoor concert – Once a week in the summer, the town of Ketchum puts on a concert series in a park. We caught a group from Ghana that was awesome… although I think we liked their dance moves better than their beats.
*Took a day trip to Stanley to see the most beautiful lake ever created: Redfish Lake. Next time we hit Idaho we are plopping down right in front of the lake and we’re not gonna move. The scent of the pine trees there is like heaven! And the water is so clear it is almost unreal.
*Almost killed ourselves hiking to the top of Bald Mountain (see previous post).
*Walked on the moon (see previous post).

All in all, a pretty amazing visit to Ketchum!
See you in Wyoming!

  1. Idaho is a beautiful state – if it just didn’t get soooooo cold in the winter. We always enjoyed going to the small farmers’ markets and catching those free outdoor concerts. Looks like you’re seeing lots of our amazing countries’ prettiest spots. Keep going because there’s lots more!

  2. I rechecked my journaling of our adventures and we stayed at The Meadows RV Park in Ketchum. From there we watched a rancher on a 4-wheeler herd his sheep up the mountain. Did you get to visit the Sun Valley Brewing Co. while there?

  3. I wish i would have known you guys were going there, i spent many of nights at redfish and pettit lakes in SV. If you swing back through there you have to stop at the Pioneer, a great old saloon that shmezz, matt and i used to work at. You are lucky you did not run into the ELK (easiest lay in ketchum) aka Matt Stoll. Sounds like you are having a great trip, love reading about it, but am super jealous! Safe travels,
    Chad, Lisa and Logan
