Forecast Changes Every 12 Hours!!

I'm sitting in Stanley at the Mountain Village Saloon having coffee with Kevin, online catching up and updating and getting ready for the "Father's Day Crush"...which is not going to happen if it keeps going on like it has been!  Right now I only have about 7 campers in Sunny right now. It has been a really slow start to the camping season here! But the weather has not helped a whole lot!



Right now it is 40 here, and so far today it has rained, sleeted and snow showered!  Low tonight is supposed to be 29! It is forecast to warm up Monday and Tuesday.  But it is looking like for the weekend it is not going to be nice up here. So that might keep the number of folks that come up here to a minimum. At least, that is basically what I'm hoping!  LOL!

Besides that, everything is rolling along just fine here. I'm happy to be back in "Idahome" for the summer! I'm loving it, as usual! 

And a footnote....Snickers is getting a little more settled each day! Almost acting like a cat!!!

Getting Warm in the Mountains!

It has actually been in the 90's here in the Sawtooths for the past couple of days!  And we had a bit of rain also. But today is cooling down, Hi in the 70's, and supposed to stay cool thru the weekend.

I have still not really had hardly any campers. This season is just getting off to- a very slow start. But my reservations are full this weekend, and 90% full from there out until August 15th (more or less)!

Due to the temps, the snow melt and rain have really caused the lakes and the river to have risen a lot!  And the water is a little muddy looking, even my well water is cloudy!

Compared to last year, the snow pack was awesome from this past winter!

The pic above is from last year.....(the date on the pic is a month off, so that is "my mtns" about 1 yr ago).

This was this morning! There is still a ton of snowpack up there!

'But with the warm days we have been having, the Salmon River here is roaring, and up about a foot and a half. The lakes are even higher right now!


But I'm in my mtns....so all is well with life!!

A Slow SZtart at Sunny Gulch

Been a couple of weeks since I had a chance to update here. Opened the gates at Sunny Gulch on 20 May.  Up thru Memorial Day Weekend, I've only had about 33 campers!  But have about 11 in here now ( June 4).  It has just been a strange start to a camping season! The Redfish Lake campgrounds are all full, so I'm not complaining about the peace over here!



The weather has been just glorious! A little chilly at nite, but very nice during the days.  Today actually hit 82 degrees. But at nite we're dropping down into the low 40's & upper 30's. Perfect camping weather!

Went into town for lunch today. Kevin came in from Mormon Bend & met me at Papa Brunee's. Had a Stanley Cheesesteak Pizza! Oh how I love them! Got a small...and it will feed me for two more meals.  And Idahome is really good for me also! Been here for 21 days &- have dropped 7 lbs already! Which has also dropped my BP by about 30 points! So maybe I've found my "fountain of youth"!!!  LOL!

I'm beginning to start shooting video & stills of Sunny & the area.  And Ill be starting to work on a cople of video podcasts in a week or so.  Once I figure oujt where to post them & get them on here also.

Guess that about covers things for now.  Abbie & Snickers are doing well here in the mountains. I'm working with Snickers now to get her used to walking on a lead. It is rather slow going! LOL!  But we'll get there!
