I had read an article in a travel magazine about 'America's Alps' located in Idaho.
This article went into our bucket list as a place to visit.Ketchum began as a silver mining town in 1880. It was once a sheep herding mecca. In 1920 Ketchum was second in worldwide sheep exports only to Sydney, Australia. Skiing first came to Ketchum out of necessity for miners, sheepherders and townsfolk as winter transportation. In 1936 Sun Valley became a winter resort destination for the rich and famous.
With a little driving on secondary roads Ketchum was sorta on our way home. So we headed across Oregon on a secondary road headed towards Ketchum. Idaho.We drove through farmland that grew onions...
Once we got to Ketchum we found that the bike trails that the article talked about were every bikers dream. 40 miles of paved biking! It was great!
