Mid Week

Well, Nothing ever happens in mid week . Life around here goes on as usual. No funny stories to tell.

I thought today I would give you a little hisory of Silver Mountain near Kellogg Idaho. It opened in 1968 as Jackass Ski Bowl. It was renamed Silverhorn Ski Area in 1973 and today is known as Silver Mountain. It's base sits smack dab in the middle of downtown Kellogg, Idaho. The gondola to the top of the mountain is billed a the world's longest gondola - 3.5 miles long and a 19 minute ride to the top. At the top there is Gondola Village with restaurants, Gift shop, arcade and a recently added indoor water park.

It is an all season resort. Winter finds such activities as skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing and ski schools. Summer activities include Mountain biking, hiking and is famous for its summer concerts. Deer, elk, cougar, black bear and wild turkey can be hunted in the fall and winter. Black bear and turkey have a spring season as well.

Back in the archives of my pea brain I dug out these pictures (not very good) of the gondola ride and a summer concert I went to a few years ago The headliner was Brad Paisley.

And "That's it for Today" from Northern Idaho.

I am going to practice putting pictures on my Journal as soon as my little buddy goes home. It is hard to work on the computer when he is setting in my lap...The pictures can wait how long will he enjoy setting in his Poppa's lap?
