One of the things I love about living in Boise, Idaho is the beautiful mountains and wilderness around us. We are a bit isolated in terms of nearest cities but we have outdoor activities galore.
For example just 2 hours north of Boise is the beautiful mountain resort, McCall Idaho!
My first experiences with this beautiful place was the boy scout camp and religious retreats....
There is activities for everyone. They have skiing, boating, walking, hiking ( not quite the same thing), hot springs, horse back riding, maybe a zip line. They also have wonderful hotels, cabins and camping sites along the beautiful Payette lake. Ponderrosa State park is just minutes away from McCall. You can be as rustic or pampered as you like. This time we are going for pampered.
The town has some pretty good restaurants and some cute shops (as you expect a tourist destination).
So today hubby and I are going to get in our car and drive along beautiful highway 55 and end up in the beautiful town of McCall. We have an agreement not to use our computers. We will probably have some nice meals and take long wonderful walks.
McCall is less famous then Ketchum (Sun Valley) which makes it a wonderful gem.
If you need help planning your Idaho vacation the state runs a wonderful tourist sight.

They booked my hotel (very reasonable), told me a about Zimms hot springs and Yahoo Corral. Sad the Corral is closed until June. No horseback riding for Debbie!
Time to sign off and start packing!
