We usually celebrate the first day of public school (we homeschool) by doing something special. This year we went on a trail ride in the Sawtooth Mountains, just about an hour north of where we live. “We,” here, means me and my kids and my sister and her kids, so nine of us altogether. After the ride, we had lunch at Redfish Lake then went to our favorite waterside hang out, Alturas Lake.
Unfortunately, we have a lot of fires going on in the wilderness areas so the air has been smokey really smokey. You can see the smoke in the air from this view of Little Redfish. I can’t believe this picture came out - I took it from horseback and I was bouncing all over the place.
