Sun Valley weekend

 Cliff and I went to Sun Valley, Idaho this past week.  He had a Speech/Debate conference to attend and I had a couple of days of vacation time. 

We stayed in Hailey and drove into Ketchum each day.  I had some time to drive up to the Valley the last day we were there.  I drove up the road to the Dollar Mt. lift and took these photos. 

We had rain all day the first day we were there. but the next day was beautiful.  There was snow on the top of the hills and the leaves were still changing at the bottom.  The contrast of all the colors was really pretty.  The low clouds on the hills added to the beauty of the whole thing.  
This is also the weekend for the Trailing of the Sheep.
For the last 15 years they have brought the sheep down from their summer grazing and herd them down the streets of Ketchum and Hailey to their winter grazing.  We never stay to watch.  Just don't want to be there with the streets all blocked off and thousands of sheep everywhere. 

 These are just some other views I took while I was in Sun Valley up by the Dollar Mt. lift.
