Sun Valley

Outsidechristinas
Fred and I spent a few days at an event in Sun Valley this past week.  We had been there once before with the family skiing.  Not easy to get to but once you do it is well worth the travel.  It is just beautiful. 

We decided to do a little exploring one morning.  When Fred and I graduated college we drove around the country for six weeks.  Our small adventure brought me back to that although we weren't camping out at a Motel 6 and existing on cheese and crackers.

We had breakfast at Christina's.  Definitely the best place in town.  Christina has put out three cookbooks.  The food is delicious.  Fred went with Christinas eggs.  House made bread toasted with crispy spinach, roasted tomatoes, poached eggs, shaved Parmesan and basil over the top.  Fred opted out of the drizzled balsamic that went with it. 

Mybreakfast
I went with my standard, poached eggs with some toast served with fresh jam and honey butter.  We sat outside in the backyard.  Really nice.

Foodcase
Inside the restaurant are a few cases.  One of cheeses and salads another of desserts and the last of huge beautiful breads.  I couldn't help but buy a few things for the road. 

Metalflowres
We traveled up the road and stopped in an annual summer art show.  Here are the highlights.  Custom metal work.

Road
Then we drove up into the mountains.  This is the view from the road.  Pretty breathtaking.

Snowpeaks
This is another angle where you can see the snow covered mountains in the background.

Always good to get away and see another part of the world.  I am sure we will be back.
