A NOTE FROM US…

I

t is June, and springtime in the mountains is nearing its passage into summer — the often gone-toofast season that has facilitated the filling of many a bucket list. Ready to show off her last secret stashes of morels in the forest and wild onions on her mountainous slopes, Mother Earth readies herself for summer. Glacial thaws fill alpine lakes, soak meadows and begin the journey down the peaks. The surge brings vigorous life to streams, which wind their way down the crags to become ripples in the rivers — nourishing local flora and fauna along the way. The valley becomes vibrant in the summer months and it is evident in the community. The mountain air sustains the vitality of locals and visitors alike, who enjoy the extra vigor. The arts and entertainment scene is seemingly endless. Indoors we have performances by local theater troupes, gallery walks, lectures and art classes. Outdoors we have arts and crafts festivals, ice shows with U.S. Olympians, plein air paint-outs, and concerts in a variety of places with beautiful outdoor

backdrops — including Bald Mountain. For shopping there is just about everything you could dream of — from the grocery stores, which offer hosts of natural and organic goods, to the Farmers’ Markets with local fare. We have clothing boutiques, jewelry stores, souvenir shops, sporting goods stores, consignment furniture and clothing shops, an amazing kitchenware store, thrift stores that support local non-profits and more. We also have antiques fairs and plenty of yard sales. And, let’s not forget the abundance of real estate opportunities. And, last but not least, we have plenty of places to enjoy the great wide open that surrounds us. From the skate parks and state-of-the-art rodeo park, to the bike trails that connect our cities and the endless hiking and biking trails in the mountains that surround us. There is plenty of opportunity to explore and discover. We hope that you will find this magazine a useful tool to help maximize your summer enjoyment. – Leslie Thompson, editor

Art walks

For art’s sake t an elevation of 5,945 feet, the air in Sun Valley is rarefied—and so is the clientele of the area’s top-flight art galleries. Serving the valley’s plethora of well-heeled and well-educated art collectors are art galleries that could hold their own in Manhattan, Berlin, London or Los Angeles.�— Art Ltd Magazine You can check out these works in some two dozen galleries yourself any time, of course. But it’s especially fun to indulge in the Gallery Walks where galleries open from 5 to 8 p.m., raising the bubbly as strollers meet artists in person. This summer’s Gallery Walks: Saturday, May 24; Friday, July 11; Friday, Aug. 8, and Friday, Aug. 29. Take advantage of a free guided tour that meets at 5 p.m. those evenings at the Sun Valley Recreation Office on the Sun Valley Mall. Another good place to see local artists’ work is the Artists Down Under store underneath Atkinsons’ Market in Ketchum and, believe it or not, St. Luke’s Wood River Hospital, which sports a large collection of art in its hallways. 101 Amazing Things To Do / Summer 2013

Brain teasing uick! Where did the expression “Good night, sleep tight” come from? On what show was the first toilet ever seen on TV? Challenge yourself with questions like these at the weekly Charity Trivia nights held at 8 p.m. Tuesdays at Lefty’s Bar & Grill, 6th and Washington streets in Ketchum. Entry fee is $15 per team of up to six with a third of the entry fees going to local charities. Questions range from sports to pop culture to history, with prizes for the winners. Players can form their own teams or join a team at each night’s competition. P.S. In case you’re wondering, the phrase came from Shakespeare’s time when mattresses were secured on beds by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes, the mattresses tightened, making the bed firmer. As for the toilet, you saw it first on “Leave It To Beaver.”

Access it from the Fox Creek parking lot 5.8 miles north of Ketchum off Highway 75.The five-mile trail offers a relatively flat stretch along the Big Wood River before turning uphill through lodgepole pine and topping out at a rocky area resembling a moonscape. The loop continues back down through woods and meadows. Another favorite of those looking for a short hike or a hike for kids is the hike to Baker Lake. The hike, which is about 2.5 miles round trip, starts on Baker Creek Road 15 miles north of Highway 75. Drive nine miles on the gravel road to the end. A relatively new bridge gets you started on the trail which ascends nearly 900 feet before you find the lake underneath a granite wall.

road biking

Hit the road—or the bike path he wind doesn’t always blow the right way. And the hills through Elkhorn will leave an impression on your lungs. But pedal pushers on skinny tires can find some wonderful scenery from the back of a bicycle seat. Cruise the Wood River Trail bike path, which stretches 22 miles from Ketchum to Bellevue. Take a rest stop at the benches overlooking the Big Wood River at Boxcar Bend—you may see elk or a wolf and you’ll almost surely spot fly-fishermen in the river below. Up for a real challenge? Cycle 30 miles along Highway 75 from Ketchum to 8,701-foot Galena Summit—a mere elevation gain of about 2,800 feet—for a grand view of the Sawtooth Mountains. Ketchum’s bicycle phenom Richard Feldman has stitched together the Ronde Van Ketchum, patterned after the famous Belgian cycling classic, Ronde Van Vlaanderen, on June 23. The non-competitive cycling event, which encompasses 130 kilometers and 1,300 meters of hills, starts at 9 a.m. and will roll over nearly every hill in West Ketchum before heading up and over Phantom Hill north of town, back out Trail Creek to the end of the pavement and then up nearly every road in the Sun Valley/Elkhorn area.

Seasonal beauties ake a walk and smell the roses—or, rather, the lupine.. The Sawtooth Botanical Garden and Environmental Resource Center are teaming up to offer Wildflower Walks each Thursday from June 6 through July 25. Walkers meet at 9:30 a.m. at the garden three miles south of Ketchum on Highway 75 and Gimlet Road and leave from there for spots around the valley that naturalists have scoped out ahead of time. Proceeds from the walk benefit both organizations. (208-726-9358). Want to discover the sego lilies, Indian paintbrush and elephant’s head on your own? The trail on the backside of Dollar Mountain offers stands of lupine and other flowers early in the season—in June or so. Greenhorn Gulch and Adams Gulch are other hot spots, with stands of flowers emerging later in the season on Bald Mountain.
