Sun Valley, Day 2 - Potato Mountain & Stanley Lake

Drove up to Stanley today (we'll be here the rest of the trip) and headed for the Potato Mountain (Little Creek Basin) loop.

Started with a climb.

It got steep and we had to push a ways. But it wasn't long and it was a small price to pay for the downhill to come.

It was a surprise to pop out into this big meadow.

There were several stream crossing, and other wet stuff like springs, puddles and bogs. I made it across this one.

The trail followed the stream a long ways.

The climb out Kelley creek was mellow and fun. This was a good ride, I think you can see it on our faces.

Driving out from the ride, the Sawtooths cannot be ignored.

We had some time and leg left so went over to Stanley Lake for a quick ride on a mellow trail up to Bridal Veil Falls. The falls were a bust, but the trail was kinda fun. Here's Jolene crossing the stream.

One last mountain shot.

Tomorrow should be Fisher-Williams and Redfish Lake.
