Sun Valley, Idaho
Sun Valley is a resort city in the western United States. It is within Blaine County in central Idaho. The resort is adjacent to the city of Ketchum and within the greater Wood River valley. The population was 1,406 at the 2010 census, down from 1,427 in 2000. The elevation of Sun Valley is 5,920 feet above sea level. The area is served by Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey, approximately 15 miles south. Visitors to Sun Valley are relatively close to the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, accessed over Galena Summit on Highway 75, the Sawtooth Scenic Byway.
Tourists enjoy its skiing, ice skating, golfing, hiking, trail riding, cycling, and tennis. Few of its residents stay year-round, and most come from major cities like Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and more distantly Chicago and New York City.

Idaho hopes to boost tourism with prizewinning night skies
One Idaho city is hoping that its stunning night skies will put it on the map as a tourist hotspot - if it can win the approval of an elite conservation organization, that is. After years of efforts to reduce excess light pollution, on Oct. 31, the International Dark-Sky Association (IDSA) named Ketchum, Idaho an International Dark Sky Community, the Associated Press reports. Ketchum is only the 16th city worldwide to be awarded the designation. In a larger sense, Idaho is “becoming one of the centers of interest in dark skies in the country,” said John Barentine, IDSA program manager. With a population of roughly 2,700, Ketchum joins other, more populous Gem State cities that are currently seeking the rare dark-sky titles, hoping to both attract stargazing tourists and boost real estate values. Earlier this year, Idaho’s Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve became an official International Dark Sky Park earlier this year, one of just 40 in the nation. Nevertheless, the m...

RVing in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area
RVing in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area is probably the best it gets for campers and RVers in terms of raw beauty, peace and quiet, and cool temperatures in the Spring and Summer. There are many forest roads that branch off of Highway 75, but one in particular, Forest Road 146, offers a mix of free boondocking, gorgeous scenery, and still some usable Verizon 4G signal. There is also a dump station here with clean, potable water, and a visitor center for maps and pamphlets.
In this video, we left our campsite after boondocking here for 15 days, hitched up our trailer, and towed it 3 miles to the dump station, just to illustrate what it's like to pull your trailer up this road. It's a bumpy, rocky road, but still doable for most RVers with moderate experience.
Our particular campsite is located at: 43.825174, -114.423140

CROY CREEK TRAILS - MOUNTAIN BIKER HAVEN
Since the mid-1970's, people in south-central Idaho have enjoyed biking in some of the most stunning natural landscapes - on mountain and foothill trails and valley trails crossing public and private lands.
With the help of mountain bike enthusiasts, county, state and federal agencies have created more than 20 miles of mountain bike trails on Bureau of Land Management land in the Croy Creek area west of Hailey, Idaho.
During the summer of 2010, the latest section of mountain bike trail took shape in Wilson Gulch. It is just a little over a mile in length and it is designed and built specifically for mountain bikers. The trail has a lot of different features in it. We've got a lot of different types of jumps, table tops and rollers to really enhance the mountain biking experience.
This new segment of trail features six single rollers, twelve double rollers and eight table tops. This is a table top jump. We have several of these scattered throughout the trail system. The idea is to jump it from one end to the other, but you can also roll through it and never let your tires leave the ground.
The contract to construct the trail was funded with an allocation under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and was awarded to extreme excavation of Shoshone, Idaho. The project represented immediate stimulus to the local economy - and in the longer term, a draw for visitors and future residents.
There is absolutely not any extra dollars available for things other than the requirements that the state government gives us that we have to do. So, if it wasn't for this program, and if it wasn't for the cooperation between Blaine County and B L M, there would be no way that the County could do this on their own.
The thing that really drove this was the demand of the users. Several years ago we had gotten letters of requests of that from state representatives, county commissioners and by me attending local trail organization meetings for several years we realized that there was a demand for spring trail opportunities closer to the City of Hailey. Right now there is an absolutely world class trail system up in Ketchum on Forest Service land, but there was nothing down here where the good majority of the population lives. That really drove the need to have a designated trail system down here in the southern part of the valley.
Located near the growing town of Hailey, the Croy Creek Trail System allows local residents to enjoy exceptional public land opportunities virtually right out their back doors! There's a lot of people that actually ride from town, it's only a three mile ride out here to the trailhead. Then from there you can easily ride for a good two and a half or three hours if you like or you can come out on the lunch hour and get a quick forty-five minute ride in. So it really provides a nice spectrum of experiences for people.
Mixing the cooperation among trail users and local and federal government agencies...with unique public land opportunities...and economic recovery funding will attract visitors and future residents while building and maintaining community in the Wood River Valley.
We have found that the cooperation that we have had between B L M and Blaine County, as well as the Forest Service, allows us to implement visions that we would not have otherwise.

Wildfires threaten Yosemite, Yellowstone
Desair Brown hosts USA NOW for August 21, 2013, covering the massive wildfires scorching the West.
FRESNO, Calif. -- An out-of-control forest fire threatening about 2,500 structures near Yosemite National Park was one of more than 50 active, large wildfires dotting the western U.S. on Wednesday.
The remote blaze in Stanislaus National Forest west of Yosemite grew to more than 25 square miles and was only 5 percent contained, threatening homes, hotels and camp buildings.
The fire has led to the voluntary evacuation of the private gated summer community of Pine Mountain Lake, which has a population of 2,800, as well as several organized camps, at least two campgrounds and dozens of other private homes. Two residences and seven outbuildings have been destroyed.
The fire also caused the closure of a 4-mile stretch of State Route 120, one of the gateways into Yosemite on the west side. Park officials said the park remains open to visitors and can be accessed via state Routes 140 and 4.
This is typically a very busy time for us until Labor Day, so it's definitely affecting business not having the traffic come through to Yosemite, said Britney Sorsdahl, a manager at the Iron Door Saloon and Grill in Groveland, a community of about 600 about five miles from the fire.
The board of supervisors in Tuolumne County held an emergency meeting Wednesday afternoon and voted for a resolution to ask Gov. Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency and free special funds and resources for the firefight.
The resolution said the fire was directly threatening various communities and businesses and beyond our capabilities, according to the Modesto Bee.
The fire was among the nation's top firefighting priorities, according to the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho.
Fifty-one major uncontained wildfires are burning throughout the West, according to the center, including in California, Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. More than 19,000 firefighters were fighting the fires.
But the U.S. Forest Service, the nation's top wildfire-fighting agency, said Wednesday that it is running out of money to fight wildfires and is diverting $600 million from timber, recreation and other areas to fill the gap. The agency said it had spent $967 million so far this year and was down to $50 million -- typically enough to pay for just a few days of fighting fires when the nation is at its top wildfire preparedness level, which went into effect Tuesday.
There have been more than 32,000 fires this year that have burned more than 5,300 square miles.
On Wednesday, the National Interagency Fire Center listed two fires in Montana as the nation's number one priority. They include a wildfire burning west of Missoula that has surpassed 13 square miles, destroyed five homes, closed U.S. Highway 12 and led to multiple evacuations. The Lolo Fire Complex, which was zero percent contained, also destroyed an unknown number of outbuildings and vehicles.
At least 19 other notable fires were burning across the state, leading Montana Gov. Steve Bullock to declare a state of emergency, which allows the use of National Guard resources ranging from personnel to helicopters.
In Oregon, a fire in the Columbia Gorge about 10 miles southwest of The Dalles grew to 13 square miles, forcing evacuations and burning a third home. The fire was 15 percent contained. Strong winds continued to fan the blaze, pushing it into the Mount Hood National Forest.
Firefighters in southwestern Oregon braced for a return of lightning storms that started a series of fires last month that continue to burn in rugged timberlands.
In Idaho, progress was reported in the fight against the nearly 169-square-mile Beaver Creek fire, which forced the evacuation of 1,250 homes in the resort area of Ketchum and Sun Valley. That fire was 47 percent contained, authorities said.
In Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, officials reopened a 7-mile section of road closed briefly by a wildfire. As of Wednesday, the Alum Fire had burned about 12 square miles and was spreading slowly, leading park officials to make preliminary evacuation plans for a community on the shore of Yellowstone Lake.

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.
Learning by listening is a great way to:
- increases imagination and understanding
- improves your listening skills
- improves your own spoken accent
- learn while on the move
- reduce eye strain
Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
Sawtooth National Forest is a National Forest that covers 2,110,408 acres (854,052 ha) in the U.S. states of Idaho (~96 percent) and Utah (~4 percent). Managed by the U.S. Forest Service in the U.S. Department of Agriculture, it was originally named the Sawtooth Forest Reserve in a proclamation issued by President Theodore Roosevelt on May 29, 1905. On August 22, 1972 a portion of the forest was designated as the Sawtooth National Recreation Area (SNRA), which includes the Sawtooth, Cecil D. Andrus–White Clouds, and Hemingway–Boulders wilderness areas. The forest is managed as four units: the SNRA and the Fairfield, Ketchum, and Minidoka Ranger Districts.
Sawtooth National Forest is named for the Sawtooth Mountains, which traverse part of the SNRA. The forest also contains the Albion, Black Pine, Boise, Boulder, Pioneer, Raft River, Smoky, Soldier, Sublett, and White Cloud mountain ranges, as well as Hyndman Peak, the ninth-highest point in Idaho at 12,009 feet (3,660 m) above sea level. Sawtooth National Forest contains land cover types which include sagebrush steppe, spruce-fir forests, alpine tundra, and over 1,100 lakes and 3,500 miles (5,600 km) of rivers and streams. Plants and animals found only in the Sawtooth National Forest and adjacent lands include Christ's Indian paintbrush, Davis' springparsley, the South Hills crossbill, and the Wood River sculpin.
The area that is now Sawtooth National Forest was first occupied by people as early as 8000 BC and by the Shoshone tribe after 1700 AD. The first European descendants migrating from the eastern United States arrived in the area around the 1820s; they were mainly explorers, trappers, and prospectors, and they founded many of the current towns around what later became the forest. Sawtooth National Forest offers facilities for recreation, with four ski areas, whitewater and flatwater boating, hunting, 81 campgrounds, and over 1,000 mi (1,600 km) of trails and roads for hiking, mountain biking, and all-terrain vehicle use, including two National Recreation Trails.
