We headed into the quilt shop in Hailey right after eating some lunch and relaxing for a bit. It's an interesting little place. Here's the main street through town (right across from the quilt shop).
Here's what our AAA tour book tells us about Hailey:
Looking north, you see this. The surrounding hills are covered in sagebrush with a notable absence of trees. This is a high desert area.
Walking a little further, we came to the Wood River. Look north, and this is what you see.
Here is it to the south. Lovely, and serene.
The sagebrush is in bloom right now.
Here's what our AAA tour book tells us about Ketchum:
Today we're going to drive around these three little communities, although being Sunday, we expect to find a lot of businesses closed. Although we're not usually people who seek out graves, we'd kind of like to see if we can find Hemingway in the Ketchum Cemetery. Also, the Sawtooth Botanical Gardens are right next door to us, and so we'll check those out too. As one drives the main road south from Stanley, one passes through Ketchum and Hailey, but Sun Valley proper is to the east just a couple of miles. We'll drive up there and check that out too. Here's what our AAA tour book says about Sun Valley. (This one spanned two pages, and so it's in two pieces...sorry.)
So a full day ahead, although we probably won't spend the whole day at it. I'll have more to say about these places in a separate post.
And now I'm caught up!
