Saturday morning at 5:00 a.m., we got the kids up for a Road Trip to Idaho’s Sun Valley, which seemed like the perfect place since it was raining pretty hard in Eastern Idaho. As you will see in some of the pictures below, some of the kids (hmm hmm . . . Emma) were not at all happy about the early rude awakening.
Our first stop was Loving Creek and the Gaver’s Lagoon in Picabo where the kids enjoyed catching a few planter rainbows. Eden even caught one on her brand new barbie fishing pole. Fortunately for the fish, it got away before we could take her picture with it.
Since it was still a little cold, our next stop on the road was north to Ketchum. There, we went to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, the Gold Mine (a cool thrift store) and the local fly shops. I personally could do without the shopping, but I wanted to make this day fun for the family too.
Next we traveled south to Bellevue for the best tacos in the world and to fish one of my favorite rivers, the Big Wood. I caught a few small rainbows on the Big Wood and enjoyed just being on the river.
Last, but certainly not least, I got to fish Silver Creek for a few minutes and caught a decent brownie. All in all, it was a fun day. I think even the kids ended up having a good time.
