Ok… we actually went to McCall, Idaho.

We’ve had the tradition of going to Idaho and/or Montana for our summer vacation for quite some time now. In the past we’ve camped out on the Salmon river or just stayed in random hotels along the way. But, this time we actually rented a vacation cabin like we were grown-ups.

I must say that this is definitely the way to go from here on out.

We first heard of McCall because our dear friend Kati Sheldon grew up there. Since she seemed to turn out OK, we decided to check it out. It is f’ing beautiful.

McCall is kinda like a perfect blend between Sun Valley, ID and Chico, CA. It has the mountains and trees of Sun Valley and the small town hippie community of Chico. Unfortunately we missed the Mother Hips when they rolled through to play at Common Ground Cafe the week before.

The wife, the dog and I had a great time just chillin’ out. We had fun hanging out at the lake, going to some hot springs, eating some good food and relaxing in the sun.

These are fabulous pictures…the area is so beautiful!

The three of you look like you’re having the best time ever. Where is this cabin? Around McCall somewhere? Send me their website. Are the pictures of the stream and lake around McCall? Is this Payette Lake and the Payette River? The cabin looks like it was perfect for you. You guys are looking good.
