Yes, I'm happiest when in the forest with a dog or three. But when I'm in Idaho, I also spend a little time in town. Groceries must be bought. I visit with friends. Errands are run.

After walking through Ponderosa State Park with Finn, Linda and her dog Wally, I stop briefly on my way home to enjoy a different sunset.

Sunset on Lake Payette from Marina Park, McCall.

The boats in the marina will soon be hauled out of the water and stored elsewhere for the winter. The lake will freeze over, and - if the ice is thick enough - this portion close to shore will become an extension of the park and McCall's winter downtown scene.
