Summer Camp in Idaho

We're in the stunning Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho, and we just left our new friend, Idaho State Advocate Paul Holle and the wonderful atmosphere at Camp Perkins and Luther Heights Bible Camp.  We spent two days at the two camps talking with 200 kids and playing two games with each session.  We played some old standbys like "Step On It" and "The Itinerary Game," and we were also able to debut "The Leave No Trace Relay" which tested the campers on each of the seven principles as they ran the course.  We had a wonderful time being immersed in camp life for a couple days and would to thank the staff at both camps for making us feel right at home.  
Now we're in Ketchum, ID to pay our respects to the late Ernest Hemingway (he spent his last years in this area), and to start the long drive to Mt. Shasta and the Oregon coast.  Our drive through Idaho was as scenic as it gets. Highways 93 and 75 take you to great small towns like Challis, Salmon, and Stanley as you follow the Salmon River through the mountains with plenty of hot springs along the way.
