The South Hills


Fall is the most beautiful time of year!  In my list of favorite seasons, it's a close second to summer.  So yesterday afternoon my friend Amy and I loaded the kids into the car and took off for the South Hills (aka Sawtooth National Forest) just a few miles from home to enjoy it.  The canyon was in full autumnal bloom!  The hillsides almost looked like they were ready to burst into flames; the aspens were so yellow.

Amy introduced me to one of her favorite sites: Ross Falls.  She stayed in the car with my sleeping boys while her two girls and I hiked a short half mile to a small waterfall.  It was a fun little hike!  I can't wait to come back and show Bron.  Then we drove further up the canyon and let the kids stomp around some campgrounds and climb rocks.  We had so much fun and we even made it home in time for dinner.  We're so lucky to live so close to the great outdoors!
