God’s Country

Image

Arrived in the Sawtooth National Recreational Area two days ago.  This picture is a good beginning. It looks over Lower Stanley, with Upper Stanley(two small towns a mile apart) and the Sawtooth Mountains in the background and the Main Salmon River and typical pastureland along the side.  Blow it up and behold.

We stayed in a campground right on the river the first two nights. Note the river to the left of the rig.

We have seen dozens of Pronghorn Antelope and several deer.

The most amazing thing I saw was an Osprey diving about 30 ft straight down into the river and immediately coming up with a fish.  No time for pictures. I did get several of the Western Tanagers who were all over the campground.  Think this male can attract a mate?  They migrate from Mexico to Canada.
