We visited the Bruneau Sand Dunes, which are only 20-25 minutes away. They are the tallest still-standing sand dunes in North America and yes...we climbed to the top of them. And while I could jabber on about how amazing they were or how difficult it was to climb them...I'm sure the pictures will do it much better justice!
As much as I hate how I look in this picture, I think Aaron's creativity of capturing Edmund in the picture was worth noting...
Edmund and his "bear-claws" as he sits perched over the crest of the sand dune. He was getting tired of sliding down the side of the dune every time he tried to lay down... :)
My handsome hubby posing for the camera...aka...hating the fact that I had taken more than 2 photos of him. :)
We also stumbled upon Anderson Dam/Reservoir and the river that flows from it. The trail head we took was only 15-20 minutes from town, but we drove for almost an hour before we stumbled onto a huge canyon with a creek at the bottom. It grew and grew until it became a river and then we came upon the dam. I was surprised by how many fishermen and rafters were out floating the river...it seemed like quite the popular spot! And the dam was HUGE with a overflow system that looked like a giant concrete slide. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera (...I know...*gasp*). So...I found a random google picture to use instead.
