Beautiful country outside of Ketchum, Idaho (IMG_1979a)
I had never been to the Sawtooth Mountains before. I flew over them many times and they looked interesting. I drove through the area in May 2009 - and my reaction was WOW! This is an absolute beautiful area. What surprised me was that the temps were in the 70s, it was a gorgeous day that Alaskans only dream about - and the place was empty and most businesses hadn't opened for the season yet - incredible! I'll definitely go back there. This area is located in central Idaho, slightly NW from Ketchum. Enjoy.
