Sun Valley Arts & Crafts Festival, Ketchum Idaho

Last summer we camped just north of Ketchum and a mama moose with her calf walked between Tom’s van and my tent which were maybe 20 feet apart! Tom heard them then saw them, but I didn’t because I was trying to tune in the news on my iPod. I should have been tuning into Mother Earth instead. There’ll be no distracting devices in my tent this year.
