Payette Lake, to be exact.
We spent a glorious day at the North Beach area.
We packed a picnic and stayed all day.
Marlee read an entire book!
The water was a little chilly, and poor Zaners, with his lack of body fat, was not loving it!
The day before we left, we went on a huckleberry-hunting hike.
This is huckleberry country, we found out. They grow wild up in the mountains, and we were there for the very beginning of huckleberry season. And boy did we find some! The boys really got into it. We took home a bunch and made huckleberry lemonade.
This ended up being one of my most favorite hikes of all time. I wished we had more time to explore this creek. It was so pristine and clear!
Max was convinced that there were real gold flakes in the sand, so he was obsessively trying to collect some the whole time.
It was such a kid's paradise. We could have set up camp & stayed forever!
But, it was time to pack up the cabin & head home.
I can't wait to go back some day. But next time we'll splurge on a place right on the lake!
