Cool day serves up views at Ellen's cabin, Sun River Canyon
Ellen led Katie, Debbie and Susan up a steep, but not too long, climb to what her family has dubbed "the cliff," which provides a gorgeous view of the Sun River Valley and the surrounding mountains, including the distinctive Sawtooth and Castle Reef.
It was fun to look down on the cabins and pick out Ellen's from on top.
The weather was cool with clouds shrouding the mountains until later in the day. But we were still able to identify some mountains as well as see Gibson dam.
Ellen showed us where her sister's ashes are scattered and talked about how her family has enjoyed the area and other hikes she has taken. She has invited the GIG to stay next summer. The cabin has three bedrooms, a loft, a covered porch with a total of eight beds.
The hike was around four miles and included a stop at the prehistoric rock paintings before returning to the cabin. On the way home, we saw many deer in the fields.
