#34 Sun Valley

Sun Valley

Sun Valley is actually an area made up of Hailey, Ketchum, and Sun Valley in Idaho. I stayed in Hailey at the Ellsworth Inn (B&B) in a delightful, although tiny room. The Sawtooth room has a fireplace and possible pseudo-celebs have slept here.


I drove out to the resort proper and spent a couple of hours wandering around the grounds and watching the ice-skaters. Ice-Skaters! In the summer, on a rink with a zamboni and everything! Crazy, rich people.







When I started driving out of the resort I realized my brakes were making a horrific sound, so by the time I made it back to Hailey I went stratight back to the Ellsworth and called for a replacement. The nearest rental agency was in Twin Falls...70 miles away, but the innkeepers were nice enough to make me breakfast for dinner...especially after finding out that I'd be leaving tommorrow too early for breakfast. Awesome fried potatoes, pancakes with homemade raspberry jam, and sausage. Delicious. They also busted out a fruit parfait with raspberries, strawberries, and bananas. The strawberries were marinated in a special vanilla sauce. So good.
