So pack the sunscreen, grab your favorite pair of flip-flops and get ready for a taste of tropical paradise on the Oregon Trail–Bear Lake Scenic Byway. Along this breathtaking byway, you’ll find beautiful Bear Lake, which straddles the Idaho–Utah border. Known as the “Caribbean of the Rockies,” due to its vibrant turquoise-blue water, Bear Lake is the place to be if you’re eager to sink your toes in the sand and have some fun in the sun. Hop on a Jet Ski, enjoy some fishing or just spend the afternoon relaxing on the beach. If you’re looking for more idyllic lakes and sandy beaches, head to northern Idaho. Lake Coeur d’Alene Scenic Byway runs along the eastern shoreline of the ever-so-captivating Lake Coeur d’Alene, making it one of the most stunning drives in the state. The area around the lake is worth more than a pit stop. Play a round of volleyball at City Park & Beach, or spend some time navigating the trails and taking in the views from Tubbs Hill, a picturesque 120-acre peninsula.

The Mesa Falls Scenic Byway winds through the lush landscapes of the Caribou–Targhee National Forest, and it’s from this road that you can hear the magnificent thunder of two of the most spectacular waterfalls in the West: Upper and Lower Mesa Falls. Gaze upon the breathtaking, 10-story cascade that is Upper Mesa Falls before heading over to the Mesa Falls Nature Trail. Starting from the visitors center, this trail meanders through a tranquil forest and ends at an overlook at Lower Mesa Falls. Portions of this trail are wheelchair- and stroller-accessible, including a boardwalk providing fantastic views of the falls. Keep in mind that some viewpoints are not accessible due to staircases.

When you just can’t get enough waterfalls, add Thousand Springs Scenic Byway to your itinerary. This route follows the Snake River Canyon and provides many opportunities to stop and admire the region’s natural beauty. Earl M. Hardy Box Canyon Springs Nature Preserve, one of the largest springs in North America, flows at 180,000 gallons per minute, resulting in stunning waterfalls and serene pools.

WILD ABOUT WHITEWATER HELLS CANYON SCENIC BYWAY & PAYETTE RIVER SCENIC BYWAY

When you’re craving an adrenaline rush, or maybe just looking to cross something off your bucket list, southwest Idaho is the place to go. The beauteous Hells Canyon Scenic Byway offers unbelievable views as it winds its way along the east side of Hells Canyon, America’s deepest gorge, which is, in fact, deeper than the Grand Canyon. The Hells Canyon National Recreation Area encompasses the mighty Snake River and offers adventurers a chance to take in the majestic, rugged terrain. Grab your paddles and experience the dramatic whitewater of Hells Canyon on a thrilling, guided raft experience. Or join a jet boat tour to take in the views and spot wildlife.

Continue your journey through Idaho’s exquisite wine country by heading to north central Idaho and hopping on the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway. This splendid byway follows the Clearwater and Lochsa rivers— leading to the charming town of Lewiston, which is part of the Lewis-Clark Valley AVA. Home to 16 prestigious vineyards, this region is the Inland Pacific Northwest’s best-kept wine secret—making it a must for your weekend (or week) of wining and dining.

Following the same path that Lewis and Clark took centuries ago, the Salmon River Scenic Byway in central Idaho runs alongside its namesake river and through the Salmon–Challis National Forest. If getting whisked away to the pioneer days sounds like a dream, be sure to plan a stop at Land of the Yankee Fork State Park. Home to several historical sites—including the ghost towns of Custer, Bayhorse and Bonanza, as well as an interpretive center offering museum exhibits and a gold panning station—this state park brings frontier mining history to life. Central Idaho has even more fascinating history to offer along the Sacajawea Historic Byway. Visit the Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural & Educational Center and spend some time perusing exhibits centered on the life of Sacajawea and the Agai’dika Shoshone–Bannock tribes. Enjoy a stroll on one of the scenic trails located throughout the 71-acre park, or sign up for one of the center’s programs and learn about Lewis and Clark Expedition from the experts.

Idaho’s Fire Lookouts It’s time to take your adventure to new heights W O R D S A N D I M A G E S BY EL I SA BET H B R E N TA N O

fter my first stay at an Idaho fire lookout, I was hooked on the idea of spending several nights each summer perched high above the pines. Rattling up and down rutted dirt roads requires patience, but those willing to venture several hours from civilization are rewarded with scenery and solitude. With nearly a dozen historic fire lookouts available for overnight rentals in northern Idaho, there are over a dozen more road trip opportunities surrounding each one.

Sleep Above the Treeline in Idaho’s Fire Lookouts

Prior to visiting Surveyors Lookout near Avery, I called the U.S. Forest Service to inquire about road conditions and lookout basics. An enthusiastic ranger noted that the last half mile to the lookout was rough but manageable without a 4x4 vehicle; however, I should be wary of two food-habituated bears in the area. Once bears learn to associate humans with easy access to food, it’s difficult to keep them away from campsites, vehicles and cabins. To help keep bears wild and healthy, it’s imperative that visitors pack out all trash and food scraps and keep food and all scented items in a secure location—like a bear canister or bear locker. My friend and I figured if we followed these safety guidelines, along with creating a warning system, we’d be fine—and the ranger agreed. After crafting an alarm with cowbells, rope and piles of firewood, we tucked into our sleeping bags for the night—confident that our backcountry booby trap would do the trick. I woke to an electric-pink sky beaming through the windows, and I caused quite a commotion as I scrambled to grab my camera. This startled my friend, who assumed I was yelling about a bear, but once she

FIRE LOOKOUT TIPS • With the exception of Crystal Peak, all of the lookouts mentioned in this article are booked via recreation.gov on a six-month rolling reservation system (i.e., six months in advance of your stay). Reservations generally fill up quickly, so it’s best to have several backup dates in mind. • Always check fs.usda.gov for directions, as GPS–based mapping apps rarely provide the correct route on lesser-known forest roads. • High-clearance vehicles with sturdy tires are strongly recommended, as most of Idaho’s fire lookouts are accessed via narrow, steep forest roads.

SURVEYORS LOOKOUT, NEAR AVERY

saw the colors splashed across the horizon, she bolted out of bed as well. The glowing sun was mesmerizing as it rose above the treetops and transformed the sky from purple to red, and it was easily one of the most incredible sunrises I had seen all year. The lookout had a fully functioning gas stove and oven, so shortly after enjoying a cup of coffee on the deck, we took advantage of the kitchen setup and whipped up some pancakes with sautéed apples and maple syrup. The lookout heated up considerably under the late July sun, but the screened windows provided us with a wonderful cross-breeze, and the overnight temperatures were perfect for sleeping. We departed in the late morning, and after making numerous stops along the scenic St. Joe River Road, we grabbed pizza at a restaurant called TFP’s and gassed up in Avery. Our next stop was Arid Peak Lookout, which would be home for the next two nights. The lookout trailhead is about an hour from town, and while Road No. 1997 has a handful of tight switchbacks at the end, a 4x4 vehicle is not necessary. The hike to the top is just under 2½ miles, and the first mile is the steepest, with approximately 600 feet of gain. From there, the trail is mellow and shaded by trees. Before our visit, we checked with the local ranger station to get the scoop on water sources, as we suspected the spring near the lookout was potentially dry. Our suspicions were confirmed, so we opted to hike back down to our vehicles on the second day to replenish our water supply. The trail was beautiful and easy to follow, so we didn’t mind the extra mileage. However, it did feel more like a backpacking trek than a leisure trip.

• Each of the lookouts on this list have outhouses, and while many have stoves, guests are generally advised to bring their own as a backup. Most lookouts do not have electricity or potable water nearby. • Idaho’s fire lookouts are located in bear country. In addition to making noise while hiking and staying near the lookouts, carrying bear spray is a must, and it’s imperative to store food properly and pack out all trash. • Beyond checking with local ranger stations regarding road conditions and fire restrictions, please familiarize yourself with Leave No Trace principles, which promote minimizing our impact on the outdoors. Find out more at LNT.org.

Sleep Above the Treeline in Idaho’s Fire Lookouts

On our return fire lookout trip, we took a completely different route. While the majority of Idaho’s fire lookouts are managed by the Forest Service, Crystal Peak Lookout in Fernwood is the notable exception. This privately owned lookout is available to rent via Airbnb, and its cozy, chic space beckons you to sleep in and truly unplug. Not only is it the definition of rustic luxury, it’s perfect for a romantic retreat. In addition to a wood-burning stove, the lookout has a pump sink and a wealth of kitchen amenities, including a pour-over coffee setup with a grinder built into the wall. The last quarter mile to the lookout requires a 4x4 vehicle, and if you wish to visit during the winter, transportation can be arranged via a vintage snowcat. If you’ve never stayed at a fire lookout, this might be the perfect way to test the waters. But be warned, it will spoil you. Unlike Crystal Peak, Forest Service lookouts don’t come stocked with hot cocoa and marshmallows. From Fernwood, we made a side trip to Elk Creek Falls on our way to Lookout Butte—near Riggins. The drive from Idaho’s tallest waterfall to the summit took four hours and was doable without a 4x4. The 60-foot lookout tower feels like a modern-day treehouse with panoramic views of the Seven Devils Mountains and the Selway–Bitterroot Wilderness. The lookout’s distance from the ground, and the trapdoor under the deck, gave me an extra sense of security from wildlife. And after hauling overnight gear up five flights of stairs, I was glad we had booked a two-night stay. At dinner, we set up colorful LED lights, which created a wonderful ambience as we listened to classical guitar music and gazed out the windows. The journey to a fire lookout is just as much of an uncharted adventure as spending a few nights in one. It’s unlike any other outdoor experience, and the reward at the end of the road is even sweeter when you’ve worked hard to get there. I often feel like I’ve traveled back in time, to a place of peace and quiet that is so rarely found these days. If you flip through the lookout logbooks, you’ll find dozens of other visitors who echo these sentiments—and who keep coming back, year after year.

ROUTE: WHITE SLABBATH (5.9)

WORDS BY L EN N EC EF ER

A

s an avid adventure climber and outdoor enthusiast, I jumped at the opportunity to climb in northern Idaho’s wild and secluded Selkirk Mountains with my friend Tara Kerzhner, a professional climbing photographer. I was intrigued by her sense of connection to place when she told me that climbing in Idaho “feels like home.” I’m Navajo and live in my ancestral homelands of the desert Southwest. I love exploring alpine landscapes—with jagged peaks, green meadows and spring-fed creeks—that offer a stark contrast to what I see every day. There is something expansive and exhilarating about feeling at home in such different places, and climbing is a particularly powerful vehicle for making that connection possible.

way north to Canada. Much of the climbing here can be defined as “large effort for large reward,” with many of the approaches being lengthy and steep. Climbers who aren’t deterred by the trek are rewarded with incredible climbing and impressive views. Chimney Rock, Harrison Peak and the Selkirk Crest are some of the most visually dazzling features in this range. Shades of gray, white and black create tapestries across the granite-covered domes, faces and peaks that tower above green meadows. Our climbing team, which also included Navajo climbing guide Aaron Mike and adventure filmmaker Isaiah Branch-Boyle, was eager to get started as we faced the stunning terrain ahead.

WHY CLIMB THE SELKIRKS

Most of the climbing in the Selkirks is considered alpine, which requires extensive preparation, research and prior experience in the backcountry. Our trip coincided with a heatwave, so we opted for a climb near a trailhead and a water source. This led us to a beautiful multi-pitch route in the Lions Creek area, at the western edge of the Selkirks. Lions Creek offers a variety of sport (where protection is already placed along the wall), traditional (where the first climber places temporary protection that is removed by the final climber) and mixed climbing. The routes are mostly moderate,

Tara was the only one of our group who had ever climbed in Idaho. Although she has climbed all over the world, Idaho is one of her favorite spots. She was especially excited about shooting photos in the Selkirks since the range is known for its pristine and nearly endless alpine granite, as well as being home to Idaho’s most wild landscapes and adventure climbs. The Selkirks are located in the Idaho Panhandle, originating at Mica Peak—just west of Coeur d’Alene—and extending all the

Climbing the Selkirks

GRANITE SLAB NEAR LIONS CREEK

SIMPLE JOYS, BIG VIEWS After a short hike to the base of the climb, we gazed at the long rightward-facing flake on White Slabbath (5.9) and roped up. Aaron was the first to climb. He gingerly placed his hands in the crack and smeared his feet against the face of the slab, pausing only to place a piece of protection. As we moved upward, we found the granite solid and the placement for gear to be equally inspiring. We knew the views from above would be spectacular. The climbing was fun and mellow. Not being overly challenged by tricky moves allowed us to appreciate the expansive sky and increasing distance from the ground below. Moving up the crack systems and large flakes that characterize much of the climbing in the Selkirks instilled a simple

joy that is often elusive in daily life and on more stressful routes. Our team seemed to float up each pitch. I could sense the elation from my climbing partners as they shared beta and remarked on particularly fun sequences. Our movements were fluid and fast, fueled by an eagerness to reach the peak. Topping out on the cliff, we high-fived each other and took in the 360-degree views with Priest Lake to the west and the many peaks of the range to our east. The ease of the climb did not diminish our feeling of accomplishment at reaching such a height. Just before the midday sun started to bake the rocks, we began our descent by rappelling off the south-facing slabs. We got down quickly and made our way to Lions Creek, where granite pools brimming with frigid crystal-clear alpine snowmelt greeted us. We walked into the water, hollering as it shocked our systems. Our voices echoed off the granite domes above us, shimmering in the heat. I closed my eyes, returned to the rhythmic feeling of pulling upward on the flake and thought about the other magical climbs I could do in this range. Northern Idaho, I’ll be back!

single- or two-pitch routes with ratings from 5.5 to 5.10 (see rating system to the right). The longest climb is the 1,300-foot, 15-pitch, 5.9-plus route called The Lion King. Water-polished cracks in the rock make for good gear placement. On the steep faces and lower angle slabs, the granite is peppered with quartz crystals and other sharp features that inspire confident foot placements and crimps. A 70-meter rope and a single rack of traditional climbing gear with extra draws is sufficient for most of the climbs in the valley. Many of the established routes are well bolted and easy to locate with a little research.

CLIMBING TERMINOLOGY & RATING SYSTEMS BETA: Tips, tricks and advice for completing specific moves or sequences on a climbing route PITCH: The length of a climb that can be completed successfully with one rope length. Multi-pitch climbs extend past one rope length, so climbers must anchor after each pitch, pull their rope and start a new pitch. YOSEMITE DECIMAL RATING SYSTEM: Most sport and traditional climbing routes are rated by level of difficulty according to this system. Vertical face climbing ranges 5.0–5.15, with the higher numbers indicating an increased level of difficulty.

ops, barley, water and yeast. This recipe has been done thousands of times at thousands of breweries—but there’s something about Idaho’s brewing industry that sets it apart from the rest. Each of Idaho’s 80-plus breweries possesses a unique culture, capturing the hearts and palates of beer-lovers everywhere. Amid these breweries are the pioneers of Idaho’s beer industry—the legends who paved the way for the rising stars making their mark in the world of beer production. But regardless of whether these businesses have been around for decades, or just a few years, they each have something special to offer. From tried-and-true trailblazers to envelope-pushing newcomers, here is just a small sample of what you’ll find on tap.

SEASONED FAVORITES

GRAND TETON BREWING | VICTOR Grand Teton Brewing holds the unique position of being the first brewery in both Idaho and Wyoming. Brothers Charlie and Ernie Otto obtained Wyoming’s first brewery license in 1988, but outgrew the space 10 years later and moved 17 miles west to Victor, Idaho, for better access to the Gem State’s barley and hops. “It’s not easy for breweries to say they use local ingredients. Barley and hops don’t grow just anywhere,” says Chris Furbacher, whose family purchased the brewery from the Ottos in 2009. Several of the Otto family recipes are still in production today. The original flagship beer, Old Faithful Ale, is a slightly sweet golden ale with a crisp body that pays tribute to nearby Yellowstone National Park—both in name and in seasonal donations to the nonprofit organization, Yellowstone Forever. “Tourism through Yellowstone National Park ... is the core of our business. It’s nice to give something back,” Furbacher says. Teton Ale, the brewery’s longest-standing beer—a classic American-style amber with a smooth finish. Grand Teton Brewing’s prime location puts it within reach of two national parks, a world-class ski resort and hundreds of miles of trails and rivers for all kinds of outdoor adventures. “We’re seeing lots of people getting out into the wilderness and making those memories,” Furbacher says. “We have a mix of different people wanting to enjoy beer in a beautiful setting after a day of recreating. We’ve even had people ride their horses up for a beer.”

WESTERN COLLECTIVE

HIGHLANDS HOLLOW BREWHOUSE | BOISE Head brewer Chris Compton has been making beer since 1993, giving him nearly 30 years of experience at Highlands Hollow Brewhouse’s historic building in Boise. Megan Jones, the general manager and granddaughter of the original owner, knew Compton and most of the staff for years before they began working for her family’s business. “Chris makes a great beer every time,” Jones says. “He’s explored new things in the latest craft-beer boom, but keeps it consistent. And that takes years of mastering the craft.” Locals and tourists alike enjoy Highlands Hollow’s flagship beers, including Jones’ personal favorite, Toads IPA, a balanced amber ale named for her beloved grandfather’s smoke-jumping code name. Also on tap is the Full Moon Stout. Made from six types of barley, this complex beer is smooth, creamy and bursting with flavor. When winter arrives in Boise, skiers, tubers and showshoers swing by the brewery on their way home from nearby Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area. In the summer, there’s a hodgepodge of mountain bikers, hikers and runners. “We’re a hub for outdoor enthusiasts year-round,” Jones says. “We’re the final piece of their day, where people get their beers at the finish line.”

WESTERN COLLECTIVE, GARDEN CITY

FRESH FACES WESTERN COLLECTIVE | GARDEN CITY WESTERN PROPER | BOISE

Where many of Idaho’s breweries embody tradition, there are new players in the industry that choose to push the envelope and break boundaries. In three years, Western Collective has expanded its menu—beer, wine, coffee and a highly coveted frosé—and its operations from a brewery in Garden City to an additional location in downtown Boise. “I’m

most proud of our inclusivity,” says owner Melissa Levick. “There’s something for everyone—not just the beer drinkers. It is truly a place where everyone can come and feel welcome.” Western Collective pursues the best of the best, pulling together several opportunities into a mosaic of the ultimate good time. Arcade games, bowling, a coffee bar and more await visitors between the two locations—and that’s before touching a beer menu. “[Western Collective] is meant to be an incomparable experience,” Levick says. “The best in Boise, period. We continue to raise the bar.” visitidaho.org

MILNER’S GATE | TWIN FALLS Having opened its doors in 2019, Milner’s Gate may be new to Idaho’s beer scene, but this brew pub has quickly made a name for itself with its sensational suds, creative pub fare and eye-catching interior design. A local favorite, Fall Down Brown, was crafted by brewmaster Quay Marshall and was the very first beer to be brewed at Milner’s Gate. This award-winning Idaho brown ale blends together notes of chocolate and nuttiness to create a full-flavored brew. Banjo Shredder IPA, another of Marshall’s masterpieces, is a juicy, hazy IPA with hints of tropical fruit and coconut.

Besides its impressive interior, part of what makes Milner’s Gate so special is the building itself. “It’s a 100-year-old building,” says Erke. “It came with a bunch of stories, and we’re excited to start some new ones. We’re taking this little gem and turning it into a diamond.” Old and new, traditional and experimental, these Idaho breweries are places for everyone to come together—to share a memorable experience with friends, neighbors and strangers over a thoughtfully crafted, thoroughly Idahoan pint.

Milner’s Gate offers more than top-notch brews—the brewery’s unique visual appeal

is just one more reason to stop by for a cold one. Large stainless steel and copper tanks on the building’s basement floor extend upward through a cutout in the center of the main floor, providing visitors with an amazing view of the brewing facility. “The design is the heart of the restaurant,” says Christopher Erke, one of the partners. “[Not only that,] these tanks can brew over 500 gallons of beer at one time.”

Western Collective’s beer selection raises the bar indeed. Its Hazy Series, a monthly IPA release with new combinations of hops, has garnered attention from beer-lovers across the state and showcases everything from tropical, juicy notes to experimental hops. Straight Outta Idaho is another one of the brewery’s unique offerings—a crisp brew with notes of lemon and apricot, crafted with 100% Idaho-grown pilsner malt.

daho may be known for its spectacular spuds, but the Gem State is also home to many other delightful delicacies such as morel mushrooms and huckleberries. Due to their rich, earthy, nutty flavor, morels are considered a gourmet ingredient. On the other hand, huckleberries—which happen to be Idaho’s state fruit—are a harmonious blend of sweet and tart. These little berries can be found in a wide variety of locally made treats across the state, including ice cream, pies, jams and more. If you’re itching to pick some Idaho ingredients to make tasty creations of your own, we talked with local experts and gathered a few tips to help you get started.

BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT Keep in mind that good foraging spots are considered precious—you’ll likely come across locals who would prefer to keep their favorite locations a secret. Do some research so that you can find prime picking spots of your own. Please use caution before consuming wild plants and mushrooms.

MOREL MUSHROOMS

WHEN TO FORAGE Morel hunting season generally runs late April through May.

WHERE TO LOOK “Morels of the Northwest can be found in many areas,” says Tim Gerlitz, Club Educator of the North Idaho Mushroom Club. “Set your sights on mixed conifer forests and places that have had recent ground disturbances, such as hiking and game trails and campgrounds. Morels can also be found a year after a forest fire—in areas containing burnt soil.” HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE FOUND A MOREL? Morels come in a variety of colors ranging from blonde to gray to black. As for the shape, look for something resembling a cross between a sea sponge and a honeycomb.

TRUE OR FALSE (MOREL)? Before you embark on your mushroomhunting adventure, be sure you can spot the differences between true and false morels. False morels have reddish-brown caps that are wrinkly and “brainy” with a solid surface. When cut lengthwise, false morels have a solid stem that continues through to attach to the top of the cap; whereas, if you’ve found a true morel, the cap will be fully attached to the stem. And if you slice the mushroom in half, it should be completely hollow inside. If you’re unsure what you’ve found is a true morel, do not eat it. As serious mushroomers say, “When in doubt, throw it out!”

A Foraging We’ll Go PICKIN’ TIPS FOR MOREL MUSHROOMS • For those gathering mushrooms for personal use within the Boise National Forest, permits are not typically required. However, you are only permitted to harvest up to five gallons of morels per person per day, and the mushrooms are not to be sold for profit. Inquire at the local Forest Service offices for further information regarding commercial permits and special cases where personal permits are required.

HUCKLEBERRIES WHEN TO FORAGE Huckleberry season is typically mid-June through August depending on elevation.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE FOUND HUCKLEBERRIES? Huckleberry bushes have dark green leaves with thin stems. The berries themselves are small in size and colors vary from deep red to purple to blue-black.

WHERE TO LOOK “Most huckleberry species grow in mid- to high-elevation forest areas—high elevations are where they’ll be most ripe,” says Kruz Robles, a huckleberry expert from Schweitzer. These berries typically prefer environments that have a combination of ample sunlight and partial shade, and they can often be found on steep slopes. Look for brushy, old clearcuts and burned or heavily logged areas. Coeur d’Alene National Forest, Priest Lake, Payette National Forest and Teton Valley are some of the best places to begin your huckleberry hunt.

BEAR IN MIND... Remember that bears like berries too! Make noise or use a bear whistle as you venture through berry patches—this will let bears know that you’re in the area and will aid in preventing an unexpected encounter. Carrying a can of bear spray is a good safety measure as well—make sure that it’s quickly and easily accessible.

• “Several studies have shown that pulling [morels] actually results in greater production of morels the following season,” says Gerlitz. So feel free to pull the morel from the earth, stem and all. • “There’s no need to worry about ‘over picking,’” says Gerlitz. “You can’t really over pick a mushroom as the mycelium in the ground is the actual fungal organism. It’s like picking all the apples from a tree—it doesn’t bring any harm to the apple tree.” • Use a net or paper bag to hold your morels. Cool, dry airflow is the key to keeping your mushrooms fresh.

12/2/21 5:47 PM


PICKIN’ TIPS FOR HUCKLEBERRIES: • “It’s recommended to pick huckleberries one at a time by hand,” says Robles. Do not clip or break off branches as this will cause damage to the plant.

“Remember that bears like berries too!”

• Do not attempt to remove the plant from the ground altogether. Wild plants live in a competitive environment, meaning if you were to remove a huckleberry bush, another plant would ultimately take its place—resulting in the bush essentially disappearing forever. • Bring a small bucket or basket to hold your berries, preferably a hands-free container that can be tied through your belt loops. • Be aware that “picking huckleberries with the intent to sell them is illegal in Idaho Panhandle National Forests,” says Mark Chorzempa from the Priest Lake Ranger District. Should you need any assistance on your huckleberry hunt, “Feel free to stop in any ranger district station for more information.” • If you don’t have the time to go foraging but still want to get a little taste of Idaho’s state fruit, huckleberries can often be found at local farmers markets.

A World of Culinary Options How one Boise neighborhood is supporting the growth of international cuisine newcomers to the City of Trees, the Boise Bench neighborhood can be a perplexing F ordestination. Named for its perch overlooking the heart of the city, the neighborhood

stretches from the Boise Train Depot all the way to the Boise Airport and over to the Boise Towne Square Mall. It’s a sweeping swath of land that varies considerably from street to street—with sleepy strip malls giving way to leafy cemeteries and used car lots abutting mansions with million-dollar views. But the Bench has another uniting thread that has little to do with geography: culinary diversity. The area is home to many of the city’s unique ethnic markets and eateries. Whether you’re on the hunt for pussy willow water, plum marmalade, pickled red cabbage or pasilla peppers, you can find it all on the Bench. If you can’t wait till you get home to enjoy your delectable discoveries, sit down for a hot meal that’ll transport you to far-flung locales around the globe.

FOOD LAND MARKET Baghdad, Iraq, native, Hana Mutlak, insists that making things from scratch is what makes all the difference at her Mediterranean Food Land Market. Whether it’s soaking and grinding garbanzo beans for falafel or chopping parsley and tomatoes for tabbouleh, Mutlak doesn’t cut corners. “I want my customers to eat what I like to eat in my home,” she says. Mutlak’s family-owned multiple grocery markets in Iraq before they fled the war in 2007 to rebuild their lives in Boise. Food Land Market combines flavors from their homeland—like fresh-baked pita bread and baklava—with a Turkish coffee counter and a well-stocked dry-goods shop offering everything from pomegranate molasses to smoked sardines in oil. At the back of the store, Mutlak’s hot food counter turns out crisp, yet pillowy, falafel plates, along with spiced lamb and beef shawarma served on elegant wood platters.

BAGUETTE DELI A longtime staple of the Bench sandwich scene, Baguette Deli is the spot for bánh mi in Boise. The popular Vietnamese street food is all about simplicity—meat, pickled and fresh veggies, cilantro, a smear of mayo and white bread roll. If any ingredients are off, the whole sandwich suffers. Thankfully, Baguette Deli nails all of the components—fluffy, fresh-baked bread that practically melts in your mouth, slightly sweetened slivers of pickled carrot and daikon, cool crisp cucumbers, fresh tufts of cilantro, fiery shaved jalapeño and your choice of protein. While barbecued pork is a perennial favorite, the vegetarian ham is a hearty meatless choice. Located in the Fred Meyer complex on Orchard and Franklin roads, Baguette Deli is owned by Tracy Pham, who also runs the nearby Orient Market on Emerald Street. Other not-to-miss specialties at this deli include the steaming beef pho and a summery option you won’t spot on the main menu: bún bowls. Essentially cold pho, bún combines rice vermicelli, cilantro, lettuce, pickled veggies, chopped peanuts, fish sauce and any two proteins or fried egg rolls. Toss everything together for the perfect picnic dish. FOOD LAND MARKET, BOISE visitidaho.org

DAS ALPENHAUS DELIKATESSEN Do you know your Doppelbocks from your Dunkelweizens, your Landjaeger from your Leberkäse? If so, Das Alpenhaus Delikatessen is your home for traditional German fare in Boise. Opened by Jamie Webster and Greg Hanson on Vista Avenue in 2016, Das Alpenhaus offers an assortment of German, Austrian and Swiss products along with a deli counter and a well-stocked selection of brews on tap and by the bottle. Raised in a German family, Webster spent time living in the central German state of Thüringen before deciding to bring a slice of Deutschland to the Boise Bench. Das Alpenhaus’ small kitchen serves up hot specials throughout the day— everything from bratwurst and currywurst to the ever-popular pork schnitzel. The plate-sized, thinly pounded fried pork cutlet spills out from between a fresh pretzel bun that’s slathered with mustard and mayo, then garnished with onion, tomato and lettuce.

CARNICERIA COALCOMAN The lunch rush at Carniceria Coalcoman is serious business. Make your way through the busy parking lot of a dated strip mall complex and you’ll find the unassuming entry to this Mexican meat market and taquería. Inside, long tables are packed with patrons squeezing lime juice on steaming bowls of menudo and savoring crisp sopes crowned with carnitas and tomatillo salsa. Veer to the left, under fluttering piñata tissue tassels, and you’ll find the carniceria, a meat market and grocery store where you can buy queso fresco and lengua by the pound. To the right, past glistening sheets of fresh chicharrones, you can order from the small restaurant counter, which offers everything from street tacos on handmade tortillas to traditional soups like pozole and birria de res.

“Specialties on our meat side would be our carne asada—we have a seasoned carne asada, which is a must-have for barbecues,” explains owner Alberto Contreras, who opened the business in March of 2013. “On the restaurant side, it would be our quesadilla.” Coalcoman’s quesadillas have little in common with the kids’ menu classic. Here, thick, handmade masa tortillas are fried on a flat top with melted cheese and meat, then filled with avocado, shredded lettuce and tomato. From there, diners can top off their plates at the salsa bar with an assortment of red and green salsas, crisp radishes, spicy pickles, diced onions and cilantro.

MR. WOK/VONS CHICKEN In South Korea, mom-and-pop fried chicken shops dot most street corners. Korean fried chicken, or KFC as it’s winkingly dubbed stateside, has gained a cult-like following for its crunchy, non-greasy crust, moist meat and spicy sauces. In Boise, you can find a handful of Korean fried chicken joints sprinkled around town, including an outpost of the popular Vons Chicken franchise housed inside the unassuming Vista Avenue haunt, Mr. Wok. The ordering process is simple: First select fried or oven-roasted chicken. Then pick wings, drumsticks, a combo of the two, or boneless meat. Then choose your sauce. On the fried front, sauce options include garlic soy, honey butter and vang-nyeom, made from smoky gochujang pepper paste. For oven-roasted chicken, take your pick of honey mustard, sweet garlic, mild or hot sauce. Served with a side of creamy coleslaw and a bowl of light pink pickled daikon radish cubes, Vons fried chicken nails the addictive formula. And most importantly, it’s a vehicle for ice cold beer. At Mr. Wok, you’ll find Japanese staples like Kirin Ichiban and Sapporo alongside American craft brews like 10 Barrel Apocalypse IPA.

TANGO’S EMPANADAS If it’s your first trip to Tango’s Empanadas—a popular Argentinian hand pie restaurant on Orchard Street— it’s best to peruse the extensive menu online before you walk through the doors. With 29 savory and 19 sweet empanada flavors, you risk holding up a line of hungry regulars if you dawdle too long mulling over the multitude of options.

TANGO’S EMPANADAS, BOISE

BAGUETTE DELI, BOISE

Opened by Monica and Louis Bremmer in 2006, Tango’s honors Monica’s Argentinian roots with choices like The Gaucho—ground beef, onions, bell peppers, eggs and green olives—or the Caramelo, filled with thick, housemade dulce de leche. Fried to a bubbly crisp and served with chimichurri—or dusted with powdered sugar and topped with ice cream—Tango’s empanadas have earned such a cult following over the years that the Bremmers recently opened a second location in Meridian.

Translation through Art Native artists within Idaho explore connections between land, culture and generational knowledge WORDS BY LE N N EC EF ER IMAGES BY TA R A K ER ZHN ER

Native artists are often translators of the natural world. They turn sensory elements—like sounds and color—into distinct pieces of art and translate plant and animal life into tangible, physical representations. Their art is born out of a connection to nature and from skills that have been passed down for generations. Most native artists source materials from the environment around them, tapping into knowledge grounded in both indigenous science and ceremonial traditions. These artists and their work provide a window into indigenous cultures and ecological knowledge that connects the people to the land, the past to the present and the present to the future. The vibrancy of native art speaks to the strength and resilience of cultural traditions that pass from one generation to the next. There are five sovereign Native Nations within the state of Idaho: the ShoshoneBannock, the Nez Perce, the Shoshone-Paiute, the Coeur d’Alene and the Kootenai. Each of these groups represents a unique artisanal tradition that has been passed down since time immemorial. The three artists featured here are knowledge keepers of artisanal traditions in their communities, and they represent three of the five tribes of Idaho. These profiles provide a glimpse into the diverse artistry of these tribes, from a pair of elder artists to a younger artist following in their footsteps. As elders, Reggie Sope (Shoshone-Paiute) and Philomena Nomee (Coeur d’Alene) are community pillars and knowledge holders. They possess a breadth and depth of experience regarding the many different art forms that are critical to cultivating the next generation of artists and community members. In their roles as master artisans, Sope and Nomee are strong advocates for their communities as well as mentors to the many young artists who follow their paths. Hunter Osborne (Shoshone-Bannock) works in a traditional medium—roach making. Roaches are traditional headdresses worn by a number of tribes in North America for style, ceremony and formal purposes. Osborne’s artistic practice grew out of his love for fancy dancing at powwows and is informed by his career as a biologist. While all three artists have different stories and are at different places on their journeys, each creates a bridge between past, present and future through their work.

“Nomee’s beadwork provides a direct connection between the past, present and future of the Coeur d’Alene people.”

NOMEE WITH BEADED CRADLEBOARDS

PHILOMENA NOMEE Coeur d’Alene Master Artist Philomena Nomee’s beadwork captures the vibrant colors and delicate shapes of the details in northern Idaho’s landscape—the flowers, grasses, birds and contours of a summer sunset. On one of her dancing shawls, a beaded flower patch ambles across the buckskin like a bunch of wild lupines reaching toward the sun. Nomee’s beadwork provides a direct connection between the past, present and future of the Coeur d’Alene people and the cultural traditions that shape each of her masterfully executed designs. Elder artists are the first to acknowledge the importance of their elders in educating them in their craft, now occupying a role that they once relied on for knowledge as young artists. Nomee is the daughter of Bill and Tillie Nomee and the granddaughter of Mary Massaslaw and Joseph Falcon. Nomee learned how to bead from her mother and

has now been practicing the craft for nearly 60 years. She is also an accomplished cornhusk weaver, combining her skills to create powwow regalia and cradleboards and works with the Idaho Commission of

the Arts as a Master Artist. Having taught fellow elders and children how to make traditional crafts, her passion and skill have inspired many to take up beadwork and cornhusk weaving.

REGGIE SOPE As the sun crests the rolling hills surrounding Duck Valley, in the very southwestern portion of Idaho, its soft light illuminates the deep green fields of Reggie Sope’s ranch. Sope is a master of multiple mediums, who considers his artistic beginnings to be when his mother and grandmother taught him how to prepare and work with hides. He starts by unfurling a roll of smoked deer buckskin he had been saving to make a new pair of leather gloves, his laughter carrying across the valley as he reminisces about pestering his mother with questions when he was learning. He brings out a pair of gloves he previously made; the hide perfectly intact smells and feels strong but soft. The simplicity of the gloves hides the many hours of work and skill needed to make them. Sope shows more examples of his mastery: a traditional infant cradleboard made from woven willows and antelope hide, intricately beaded feather fans, a traditional bow and arrows, ranching gloves and a beaded bag made without the use of a needle.

Sope is from the Shoshone-Paiute and the Pit River Paiute people, and he is a member of the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes of Duck Valley, where he lives today. He is deeply connected to the land where he lives and works each day as a rancher and

knowledge keeper. As a passionate, multiskilled artist, Sope is committed to mentoring the next generation of Shoshone-Paiute artists, as well as passing on his unshakeable connection to the land and cultural traditions of his people.

Translation through Art

“Strength and toughness are required by the dancers as well as the ornate dress and headpieces that make their movements so beautiful and almost otherworldly.”

OSBORNE WORKING ON A ROACH

HUNTER OSBORNE Fancy dancing, a form of traditional dancing commonly seen at powwows, is known for being colorful, conspicuous and highly energetic. Strength and toughness are required by the dancers as well as the ornate dress and headpieces that make their movements so beautiful and almost otherworldly. Dancers wear roaches, which consist of a delicate weaving of many thousands of small bundles of hair, carefully sorted by size and color, and folded and fastened by a small knot over a main string. Roaches were traditionally made out of porcupine guard hair, but now they are often made of artificial animal hair, which artists expertly sort and knot into bundles to create a seamless flow of parallel light and dark colors down the length of the roach. Shoshone-Bannock artist Hunter Osborne started making roaches to support his passion for competing in local powwows as a fancy dancer. The intensity of the dance puts significant strain on everything the dancer wears. This is especially true for roaches, which are flung about with every quick movement of the dancer’s head. Osborne

46 | Official Idaho Travel Guide

42-49 Artist Profiles.indd 46

|

learned how to repair—and then construct— his own roaches through research, trial and error, and help from other artists in his community. His approach to the art of roach-making has been influenced by his background in biology.

As a biologist for his tribe, Osborne sees the importance of protecting wildlife and minimizing the impacts of sourcing materials like guard hairs from local porcupines. In place of natural porcupine hair, he uses synthetic fiber, as it is more

sustainable and lends itself to much easier sorting of bundles, and a more consistent production of pieces throughout the year. Osborne balances the need to steward his tribe’s natural resources with the need to carry on traditional practices of art-making, just as he balances steps between beats in a fancy dance. PRESS PLAY to watch incredible videos showcasing how a new generation approaches their tribes’ artistic traditions.

Idaho’s Walkable Art & History Encounter local artistry and historical tales on the streets of Idaho

WORDS BY MARISSA LOVELL I M AG E S BY M I C H A E L B O N O CO R E

here is something to be said about exploring a city on foot. Walking slows you down enough to really take in a place—it can give you a more personal perspective. As writer Edward Abbey once said, “Walking makes the world much bigger and thus more interesting. You have time to observe the details.” From magnificent mountains and forests to beautiful cities, there is much to see and do while walking. But when it comes to art and history in Idaho, there is no better way to experience it than on your own two feet.

BOISE Freak Alley Gallery Cost: Free Freak Alley is the colorful vein in the heart of downtown Boise. The Northwest’s largest outdoor mural gallery started in 2002 when local artist Colby Akers painted the back door of Moon’s Kitchen Cafe. His art sparked interest among neighboring businesses who wanted him to continue. Akers collaborated with other local artists to paint the alleys of the 8th Street corridor and, thus, Freak Alley was born. Every year in late summer, local artists gather to repaint the alley, bringing new art, and another year of life to Freak Alley. Preservation Idaho Walking Tours Cost: $12 Walk through 150 years of history in 90 minutes on a Walkabout Boise Tour. Held every Saturday morning, this guided tour shares the stories of downtown Boise’s oldest buildings and beloved architecture and visits key places in Boise’s deep-rooted Basque, German, Jewish and Chinese communities. This fascinating walking tour also reveals the evolution of downtown Boise from the gold rush to 21st century revitalization. Preservation Idaho’s ArchWalk Tours offer a deep dive into specific neighborhoods, buildings and locations that helped shape Boise’s history. A total of five tours take place on the last Thursday of each month, from May through September. Tickets are sold as a bundle for all five tours.

FREAK ALLEY GALLERY, BOISE

Boise City Department of Arts & History Tours Cost: Free Explore the array of public art that colors downtown Boise. Join a two-hour guided tour every third Saturday of the month from April to October, or take the tour at your own pace using the interactive map found on the website. visitidaho.org

IDAHO FALLS Pugsslane Alley Cost: Free Tucked into the alleys of Idaho Falls is Pugsslane Alley, a senior project turned community collaboration. The creator, Gibby Smede, was inspired to create a colorful and ever-changing mural alley after seeing Freak Alley in Boise. She began painting the alley in 2018 while in high school and has since been working with other local artists and the city to continue adding murals and public art to Pugsslane, as well as to other walls throughout Idaho Falls.

LAKE PEND OREILLE

WORDS BY M A R I SSA LOV EL L

S

ome of the best memories are made at the lake. Quiet morning walks on a sandy beach. Long afternoons spent on sparkling water. Roasting marshmallows and swapping campfire stories under a star-studded sky. Idaho’s lakes offer the quintessential setting for a fun, vacation. The scenic drives, mountain views, crystal-clear water and infinite outdoor activities are what keep families coming back for more.

LAKE PEND OREILLE SANDPOINT As Idaho’s largest and deepest lake, Lake Pend Oreille (pronounced pond-oh-ray) boasts 148 square miles of water, 111 miles of shoreline and even more ways to enjoy it. Lake Pend Oreille is one of northern Idaho’s magnificent glacial lakes and makes an idyllic setting for an unforgettable vacation. There are numerous ways to experience Lake Pend Oreille both on and off the water. Sandpoint City Beach Park is one of the main areas for shoreline access. Only two blocks from downtown Sandpoint, this six-acre park offers a big sandy beach and a grassy lawn area with picnic tables, a playground, volleyball and tennis courts and a boat launch. At the southern end of the lake is Farragut State Park, a 4,000-acre state park that was once the world’s second-largest

naval training station. The park is known for its stunning views of Lake Pend Oreille, great camping and easy access to outdoor activities. Visitors will enjoy the warm and shallow swimming area at Beaver Bay Beach and the five different 18-hole disc golf courses within the park. Naturally, getting out onto the water is the main attraction at Lake Pend Oreille. Rent your watercraft of choice from Action Water Sports, Sandpoint Watersports or Bottle Bay Resort & Marina. Take a kayak or paddleboard out to explore the shoreline, or kick it up a notch and rent a Jet Ski. For those bringing or renting a boat, wakeboarding and water skiing on Pend Oreille are some all-time favorite summer activities. On a low-key day, take a Lake Pend Oreille cruise—which departs from Sandpoint—and experience the lake at your leisure. The afternoon cruise travels a 10-mile loop, pointing out scenic viewpoints and historical locations around the lake. Don’t Miss: Discover a wide variety of summer activities at Schweitzer. Grab your mountain bike and tackle more than 40 miles of epic terrain, or lace up your hiking boots and explore lush forests and meadows dotted with vibrant wildflowers. Hop aboard the Huckleberry Shuttle or check out the guided e-bike rides before enjoying a scenic chairlift ride with sweeping mountain views. visitidaho.org

PRIEST LAKE

LOON LAKE

COOLIN

NEAR MCCALL

Located in Idaho’s panhandle, just 30 miles from the Canadian border, Priest Lake is one of three impressive lakes in the northern part of the state—and is nicknamed Idaho’s crown jewel for good reason. Known for its exceptionally clear waters, gorgeous mountain views and stunning beach, Priest Lake is a great choice for those seeking outdoor adventure. Rent a boat from Blue Diamond Marina & Resort and take the kids water skiing, tubing or to explore the coves and beaches around Priest Lake. If you’re in need of some gear, the marina also rents life jackets, kayaks and paddleboards. Guests of Elkins Resort can rent all their watercraft and accessories directly from the resort and use its private boat launch. Priest Lake State Park is ideal for families with three distinct areas—each with their own unique amenities and experiences. Lionhead Unit is on the north shore of the lake and is known for its sublime beach and easy access to the Thorofare and Upper Priest Lake. Indian Creek Unit is the largest and offers camping with amenities such as big beaches, volleyball courts, bathrooms with showers and the Indian Creek State Park store—convenient for quick grocery runs and to-die-for huckleberry ice-cream cones. The third unit, Dickensheet, is a small campground along Priest River with wading for littles ones and access to a bike path.

Tucked away in the peaks of Payette National Forest, Loon Lake is one of Idaho’s prime locations. This picturesque mountain lake sits about 40 miles north of McCall and is best experienced by hiking the Loon Lake Loop Trail. More likely than not, your stay at Loon Lake will be a backpacking trip. It could also be a full daytrip for particularly ambitious families. At 10-plus miles, the full loop is a long one, but it’s pretty flat, very scenic and comes with a big reward. Your trek begins less than a mile after Chinook Campground—the trailhead is well-marked and there is a small parking area. The trail will immediately fork. To the left is the six-mile Secesh River Trail (#080), which meanders along the Secesh River for four miles before crossing a bridge and climbing the last two miles to Loon Lake. To the right is the Loon Lake Trail (#081), a five-mile hike that begins with a bridge crossing and continues on a rolling ascent to the lake. Pick one trail for the way there and head back on the other to make a loop.

LOON LAKE

DON’T MISS: During the summer, Hill’s Resort hosts a weekly movie night on the sandy shores of Priest Lake. Grab some snacks, spread out the blankets and enjoy a family-friendly film at the beach.

HENRYS LAKE NEAR ISLAND PARK Sitting high above eastern Idaho at 6,470 feet, Henrys Lake is a wide and shallow alpine lake known for its large fish, abundant wildlife and amazing hiking trails. The biggest draw, of course, is the lake itself. Henrys Lake spans 6,000 acres, and while it has nearly 17 miles of shoreline, it’s only 15-feet deep. For anglers, Henrys Lake is heaven on earth—it’s the headwaters for Henry’s Fork of the Snake River, a world-renowned fly-fishing river. Anglers come from all over the world to fish for huge cutthroat, brook and cut-bow hybrid trout in Henrys Lake and Henry’s Fork.

SOPHIE SESTERO

This scenic lake is a great place to enjoy calm, clean water from a kayak or paddleboard. Bring your own or rent one from Experience Island Park. When you’re ready to take your adventure to dry land, explore any of the six trails that wind through Henrys Lake State Park—perfect for short day hikes and bike rides. Some trails are paved, and all are fairly flat.

DON’T MISS: Kick things up a notch with an exhilarating off-road experience in Island Park. This area has plenty to explore—offering hundreds of miles of Forest Service access roads that allow all-wheeled traffic. Hop on Sawtell Peak Road and take in the spectacular panoramic views from the top of Sawtell Peak. Or enjoy a short, scenic drive on the 10-mile Big Springs Loop.

In January of 1943, the small plane skated across Loon Lake’s frozen surface and ripped through the forest, coming to rest where it lies today. Miraculously, only one man was injured in the wreck, and nearly a month later the entire crew was rescued. Now, all that remains is the weathered shell of the old airplane and the incredible tale of how it got there.

Enchanted by the singletrack here, I’ve made numerous return trips of my own over the last few years. So when a group of friends—active, passionate mountain biking parents all with kids of varying ages in tow—asked for a recommendation for a weeklong biking vacation, I immediately suggested McCall, with one condition: I get to tag along. We round up the caravan the first night at the bustling parking lot of Brundage Mountain Resort, just northwest of McCall. The next morning, it quickly becomes clear why there are as many picnic blankets sprawled across the lawn of the base area as bikes: the expansive mountain vistas alone are worth the trip. From the top of the Bluebird Express Lift, the sight of Payette Lake, with McCall at its edge, astounds.

Mountain Biking Bliss

It’s nothing but spectacular views all the way down, if riders can take their eyes off the rock drops of experts-only Hidden Valley. Fortunately, beginner tracks like Elk Trail, with its small rollers and refreshing stream crossings, bring some of the picnic-blanket vibes to the trail system. Tag in, tag out, tag along with the grooms—on this trip, there’s always a ride coming or going. It’s a bike rodeo in the Brundage parking lot as a group of dads takes the preteens out for a lap on the cross-country trails, which comprise a quarter of the 26 miles of singletrack on the mountain. Meanwhile, I round up a couple of moms for brunch laps at Bear Basin. Only five minutes from downtown McCall, Bear Basin is the closest trail system to the community. While we roll up on a bustling parking lot, it takes only a few pedal strokes to find trails to ourselves. As we pause for breath—and to take in the wooded scenery—at the mid-point of Drain, an aptly named stretch of swirling bermed turns, we hear only birdsong. Despite the small footprint of stacked loops, Bear Basin feels truly remote.

It’s representative of McCall, where, with the mountains so close, you can have the best of both worlds: feelings of mountain solitude five minutes from the microbrewery and backcountry trails built to bike park standards. The Payette Lake Trail (PLT) is an excellent example. Modeled after the famed Tahoe Rim Trail, the 33-mile route circumnavigates the mountain lake on mostly new, modern singletrack. Like the Tahoe Rim Trail, the PLT features near-constant views of McCall’s main attraction far below. That afternoon, we move to our basecamp for the remainder of the trip at Lake Cascade State Park, outside Donnelly, about 20 minutes south of McCall. It sits conveniently close to the base of Tamarack Resort, where we’ll put in both lift- and lung-powered laps over the next few days. Tamarack has earned its reputation among downhill racers in the past two decades for its gnarly doubleblack-diamond downhill tracks. But in the last couple of years, the resort has thoroughly reinvented itself as an all-around destination bike park, with buffed out, beginner-friendly flow trails and a base area dirt jump park constructed with input from regional pros.

The next morning, the dads draw the long straw for first laps. Twenty minutes later, we’re unloading our bikes in the trailhead parking lot at Jug Mountain Ranch. Proving that polo shirts and padded shorts easily coexist in McCall, the immaculately tended fairways of this private golf course community bump up against one of the region’s most beloved trail systems. The trails, from the massive gap jumps of Exfoliator to the flowing, forested tread of Vandelay, exhibit the same level of attention as the golf course greens. Amazingly, if riders opt to pedal for their laps rather than reserve a spot on the shuttle—which costs $30 and takes riders to the top of the mountain—the trail system is free to the public. Even the shuttle vehicle—a World War II-era open-air artillery carrier— looks right at home next to golf carts and luxury cars.

up before the kids for a quick lap on Wild Turkey at Tamarack, finishing off the ride with a cold brew from Clearwater Coffee Company in the brand-new Village. Sometimes it means late-evening rides on those same trails through the golden evening glow of aspen groves. Whether chasing a buddy’s back wheel on park laps at Tamarack or a kid’s push bike through the parking lot of the campground, it’s a quintessential bike trip. With trails like these, even the shortest summers can feel endless.

As riders come and go, the stragglers head over to a sandy beach where kids, dogs and adults laze on the sand or stand-up paddleboards. From bike saddle to SUP to camp chair, we settle into a satisfying daily routine. But the experience is anything but routine, and there’s always time to sneak in another ride.

While all 18 of Idaho’s mountains offer terrain for any level of skier or rider, as well as excellent instruction programs, it’s helpful to be familiar with a must-try trail or two before hopping on the lift. Here are a few suggested slopes for each skiing or riding level.

• Lookout Pass Ski & Recreation Area • Mullan

Aptly named, Powder Puff ’s northerly slope catches and holds powder, providing great lines accented with an awesome view. Groomer cruisers will want to check out West Road to Upper Bonsai to Easy Out and onto Sunshine.

• Pomerelle Mountain Resort • Albion For great beginner terrain, look no further than Milk Run—a long, wide groomer with the perfect pitch for newbies. Instructor is another lengthy, spacious run offering fantastic views of the resort with a double fall line to make things interesting.

The Montana side of this border-straddling resort offers two long, fantastically pitched runs: Cloud 9 and Keystone. Both trails are flanked by grand glades featuring widely spaced trees perfect for dashing in and out.

• Tamarack Resort Donnelly For a vertical drop of 2,300 feet and epic views of Lake Cascade, set adrift on Upper and Lower Bliss. Pro tip: If you’re not ready to descend to the base, take the cutoff at Rumba at the bottom of Upper Bliss and head back to the top via the Summit Express midmountain lift.

ADVANCED • INTERMEDIATE • Bald Mountain Sun Valley For a fun leg workout, take on the 3,000 vertical feet of Upper–Lower College to Lower River Run. Skiers and riders in search of playful terrain will enjoy the Leigh Lane to Broadway run in the Seattle Ridge area.

• Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area • Boise Don’t miss Paradise—a gloriously wide groomer that serves as the mountain’s longest run (1.5 miles) and offers the greatest vertical drop (1,800 feet). Pro tip: Skip the black-diamond section by taking the cutoff from Bonanza and enjoy bluesquare terrain the rest of the way.

ach winter, snow falls on the jagged peaks of eastern Idaho, covering the ridgelines in a glistening white dust. High in the alpine basins, snow crystals cling to the trees and sunshine streaks across the landscape. Snowmobilers from around the country flock to eastern Idaho—a snowmobiling mecca boasting extensive trail systems, superb backcountry opportunities and massive amounts of snow. Average annual snowfall in this part of the state ranges from 100 inches in Idaho Falls to upwards of 500 inches near Driggs. Here, you can cruise on groomed trails through lodgepole pine forests and carve through deep powder in open meadows. Snowmobiling is an adventure like no other, and an excellent activity during a winter family vacation. Eastern Idaho snowmobiling destinations, such as Island Park, Swan Valley, Idaho Falls and Teton Valley, offer hundreds of miles of groomed trails to explore. At each destination, you’ll find knowledgeable outfitters who can recommend some great itineraries and get you set up with the right gear, should you need rentals. For Steve Dutcher and his family— who own High Mountain Adventures, an outfitter in Island Park—snowmobiling is in their blood. Steve, his wife and their four sons spend winter days riding through fresh powder. The boys have been riding since they were two. “Just watching the kids ride by themselves is such a blast,” says Dutcher. “They’re all smiles—they don’t ever want to get off the snowmobiles. They just want to ride all day.” If you’re new to snowmobiling, you’ll want to stick to groomers in order to learn the basics. Groomers are compacted trails without any fresh powder, making them relatively easy visitidaho.org

rides. For a family-friendly ride to scenic views, “Mount Two Top is a local favorite, and a great place to start your family adventure,” recommends Dutcher. “You’ll ride past snow-covered trees that look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. We call them ghost trees because they form wild shapes. When the mountains get a lot of snow, the wind freezes the snow to the tree branches.” The ride to the summit takes about 20 to 30 minutes, but it’s well worth the effort. Once you reach the top, you’ll take in outstanding views of Island Park, the Tetons and the western side of Yellowstone National Park. For seasoned snowmobilers looking for a bit more adrenaline, ditch the groomed trails and head for the mountains. Island Park’s terrain has a lot to offer beyond the marked trails, such as Black Canyon’s powder-filled meadows or the alpine bowls near Lionhead Trail. “When you’re more experienced, powder riding is where the real fun is. It’s such a rush,” Dutcher exclaims.

For Dutcher, one of the best parts of snowmobiling is immersing yourself in nature and experiencing destinations that you can’t easily reach on foot. “When you’re going on a family ride, everything is so relaxing,” says Dutcher. “You can really bond with your kids because you’re not getting distracted by the busyness of life and technology.” If you and your crew are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle, Mesa Falls is the perfect destination. The trails here provide spectacular views of the surrounding winter landscapes and the icy cascades of Mesa Falls. As you ride along the forested route, be sure to keep an eye out for moose and other wildlife. While eastern Idaho lures visitors with its lofty peaks, epic views and impressive snowfall, the rest of the state also presents some amazing snowmobiling opportunities. Northern Idaho is home to the Silver Valley, where more than 1,000 miles of trails weave into the rugged and serene Bitterroot Mountains.

t’s fitting that Idaho’s nickname is the Gem State—this emerging destination is a treasure trove of unexpected discoveries that fall well outside the realm of some of the more common, spud-centric topics. One of the most underrated? The wine industry. The unique geographical and geological attributes that are responsible for other draws to the area (hiking, snow sports and fresh farm-totable cuisine, to name a few) are the very same that make the wine from this state so mysterious, complex and downright delicious. Though, with Idaho’s recent growth in population, and the exceptional quality of wine production, it won’t be flying under the radar for much longer. Check out some highlights below, and start planning your winetasting experience in Idaho.

ALL OF THE FLAVOR, NONE OF THE NONSENSE Both the wine sophisticate and the wine curious (and, really, anyone in between) are welcome here. One of the standout features of the state is how kind, open and passionate everyone is about sharing their excitement for the quickly growing “new American frontier” of wine. You can explore a tasting trail, such as the Snake River Valley’s Sunnyslope Wine Trail, or enjoy an intimate day of wine education at one of the many wineries—such as Telaya Wine Co. in Garden City. Thanks to its young “maverick” wine industry status, viticulturalists and winemakers in Idaho have the freedom to experiment with growing and making all kinds of incredible, unique wines, like viognier—a relatively rare varietal due to the fact that the grapes are difficult to grow. The state’s various wine regions fall roughly on the same latitudes as Spain’s Rioja region, France’s northern Rhône region and even Argentina’s Uco Valley region in the southern hemisphere. The conditions are perfect for growing grapes, such as syrah, merlot, riesling, chardonnay, malbec and tempranillo. Not only that, Idaho is home to a variety of terrains and three very distinct American Viticultural Areas (AVAs): Snake River Valley (est. 2007), Eagle Foothills (est. 2015) and Lewis–Clark Valley (est. 2016). The presence of these diverse AVAs means that the state isn’t limited in its grape production, as some other parts of the country may be.

Speaking of Idaho’s grapes, they’re pretty impressive. The characteristic volcanic soil left over from many years of eruptions under ancient Lake Idaho, as well as the graniterich soils found near the Idaho Batholith, combine in various ways to make for some of the most diverse and ideal growing conditions. The porous, nutrient-stripped earth encourages the plants to seed rather than continue growing—thus creating rich, flavorful crops of grapes which are literally ripe for the picking. And then there’s winter—which is actually essential to the formula for growing good grapes. “You need a winter and a summer cycle. You can’t really make grape wine in the tropics because winter is critical—it resets the grapes and makes them all bloom and have their fruit ready at the same time,” says Cinder Wines co-founder and winemaker Melanie Krause. Idaho’s cold winters also contribute to a unique, rare offering: ice wine. Ice wine is essentially nature’s magic recipe—a serendipitous combination of the time between when the growing season ends and when the weather remains cold enough for an extended period. To be more precise, the temperature needs to get down to 13° F for at least 6–7 hours, so that the grapes can be picked and pressed when they’re completely frozen. See for yourself what makes Idaho’s ice wines so incredible at Koenig Vineyards or Ste. Chapelle.

IDEAL GROWING CONDITIONS

CINDER WINES, GARDEN CITY

The care and attention to detail of local winemakers spans far beyond grape growing, harvesting and wine production— you’ll notice an immense sense of passion and belonging every time you visit an Idaho winery. Telaya owner and winemaker Earl Sullivan says, “We continue to focus on hospitality and finding new ways to surprise and delight our customers and come up with innovative events and ways to interact.” Throughout the state, you’ll find events that both educate and whet your palate— like Telaya Bites, featuring food and wine pairings with local chefs—as well as gatherings that give back to the community, like Split Rail Winery’s Wine Not Give donation events. Idaho’s wineries are not only incredibly supportive of one another, they strive for excellence and are amplifying all the state has to offer. Plan a trip, pour a glass and get a taste of Idaho’s exquisite wine regions.

HOW TO VISIT • Given that the terrain (terroir) and geology of the state are so wideranging, you will find vinicultural variety no matter which AVA you visit. Upon landing at the Boise Airport, you’ll find yourself roughly 10 minutes away from Garden City, which neighbors Boise. • The southwestern urban wine region falls within the larger Snake River Valley AVA—encompassing the new Eagle Foothills AVA—and is home to wineries such as Split Rail, Cinder, Telaya and 3100 Cellars (within Telaya). Be sure to add downtown Boise to your itinerary and enjoy a glass or two at Coiled Wine Bar or Scoria Tenth & Main. (Fun fact: Scoria is the technical term for the volcanic rock that makes the soil of the region ideal for growing.) • Explore more of the Snake River Valley AVA by sipping your way through the famed Sunnyslope Wine Trail, featuring locations such as Ste. Chapelle (the state’s largest winery), the nearby Sawtooth Winery, Snake River Winery, Kerry Hill Winery, Scoria’s tasting room and many others. • Up for a little more adventure? Head north to Idaho’s youngest AVA—the Lewis–Clark Valley AVA. This region straddles the Idaho-Washington state line and includes destinations such as Clearwater Canyon Cellars and Colter’s Creek Winery, where you’ll find amazing petit syrah, petit verdot and cab franc, among others. visitidaho.org

Beauty Beyond Words: The Northern Lights How to experience the aurora borealis in Idaho WO R D S A N D I M AG E S BY C R A I G G O O DW I N

N

othing beats a sunny day exploring the outdoors of Idaho. But for many, the real magic begins at night—when remote, dark skies sparkle with galaxies, shooting stars and, if you’re lucky, the northern lights. Instead of making the journey to Alaska or Iceland to see the aurora borealis, a strategic trip to northern Idaho presents an incredible opportunity to check this celestial phenomenon off your bucket list without leaving the lower 48 states. While the lights are regularly active year-round, they are quite elusive. So if you want to increase your chances of a sighting in Idaho, there are a few necessary conditions to keep in mind. To begin, the sky has to be dark, with no light pollution from the glow of cities or the moon. The week before and after a new moon is the best monthly window for viewing. The skies also need to be clear, which means that the summer months—July and August, in particular—are best because there are more cloud-free days. Thankfully, these months are also prime times for camping—campfires and mild temperatures make for comfortable late-night stargazing. Next on the list, you’ll need an open view of the horizon to the north. The shorelines of large lakes and high peaks are ideal

locations for aurora watching, which means northern Idaho is abundant with opportunities. Because there are no guarantees of seeing the aurora, it’s best to plan trips where viewing the northern lights is a potential bonus on a bigger itinerary of other outdoor excursions. The most important ingredient to a successful aurora hunt is that the lights have to be active. When the sun releases bursts of energy toward Earth, those charged particles create colorful auroral displays when they hit the planet’s atmosphere. The National Weather Service regularly monitors these eruptions on the sun’s surface and forecasts when they will arrive and how strong the storms will be. The predictions are not always precise, but they are definitely helpful for planning. The University of Alaska provides a handy 27-day forecast that is a good place to start or head to the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center website for real-time information. Scientists measure the strength of the aurora on a Kp index from 0 to 9. The lights are generally considered active when the index is 3 or higher; but in northern Idaho, you’ll want to look for stronger readings of at least 4 or greater to see them with the naked eye. visitidaho.org

Beauty Beyond Words: The Northern Lights

We may know the science behind the aurora, but the lights always appear on their own mysterious schedule. It’s best to think of seeing the northern lights as an ongoing pursuit, rather than a one-time event. It’s not unusual to see big headlines in the news about a coming solar storm, only to be met with nothing but darkness. Meanwhile, on other nights, the aurora can make a surprise appearance. Veteran light hunters know that while there will be disappointments along the way, persistence does pay off. One way to enhance your experience of the northern lights is to bring your camera along so that you can capture this spectacular event. While astrophotography may seem like an activity reserved for advanced photographers, it’s surprisingly accessible to anyone with a basic digital camera. Here are some tips to get started: • Set your camera’s focus to infinity on a wide-angle lens. This will ensure that the stars and lights are in focus. • Open the aperture of the lens as wide as you can—preferably f4 to f2.8. • Aim toward the north horizon with a shutter speed of 20 seconds and set your ISO to 3200. • While the aurora may seem faint to the human eye, the camera sensor will reveal vibrant colors and surprisingly bright rays of light. Even if you’re not taking award-winning photographs, using a camera is a great way to understand where the lights are active on the horizon and will help show where to focus attention. Remember that the aurora is elusive. So if it’s not immediately visible—even with a camera—keep checking throughout the night. The worst thing that can happen is that you get to spend an awe-inspiring night under a vast universe of stars. Even if you do strike out, the breathtaking Idaho scenery will be there to greet you in the morning, beckoning you on to the next great adventure.

PRIME LOCATIONS TO CONSIDER Heyburn State Park—on the shores of Chatcolet Lake near St. Maries—has clear views to the north, and the nights are so dark that the skies seem almost overwhelmed with stars. The nearby Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes also offers abundant recreation opportunities and wildlife viewing during the day. Schweitzer not only has high peaks with spectacular views, but there are chairlifts available during the day to take you to the top in summer. After an evening of hiking the Selkirk Mountains and picking huckleberries, you can stick around for nature’s light show. Remember that it’s best to stay with a group of people when out at night, and don’t forget a flashlight and bear spray. While Priest Lake is a popular northern Idaho location to observe the aurora, it’s also an outdoor wonderland of hiking and biking opportunities. The beaches at Hill’s Resort and the Priest Lake Museum are magical locations to sit around firepits and watch the night sky. On occasion, Hill’s Resort will even turn off the light at the marina to aid with viewing. For a truly memorable experience, you can camp on Kalispell Island or Bartoo Island—accessible only by boat—for one-of-a-kind night-sky viewing to the north.

HILL’S RESORT, PRIEST LAKE

Arid Peak Lookout near Avery has incredible views in every direction, and is available to rent for camping. You’ll need to hike into this location—which will require extra planning—but the endless night skies will be worth the effort. Visit the nearby Route of the Hiawatha trail and St. Joe River for biking, fishing and other excursions.
