Ketchum-Hiking Bald Mt and Hailey-July 4th Celebrations

Great day of hiking on Bald Mt

Arrived in Ketchum, Idaho, staying at the Meadows RV Park from June 28th to July 7th. We have never been to Ketchum/Sun Valley in the summer and were excited to explore this beautiful area in the warm sunshine. Our first outing was to go up Bald Mountain (9,150 ft) on the chairlift and hike down. It was a spectacular day with plenty of vistas to see on the way down. The wild flowers were in full blown and the big puffy clouds made the hike even better. Hiking down instead of boarding  down was a lot slower but very enjoyable and we stopped in for lunch at the Roundhouse and sat outside on the deck with a beautiful view of Baldy. A couple came and sat next to us, and we found out that she is going to hike Mt Kilimanjaro. We gave her lots of tips. Click on thumbnail to view images
