I love Wallace, Idaho. My parents have a place there and every Fourth of July we go up there for family fun:
^^The backyard makes my heart melt.^^
^^One of my favorite structures in Wallace: the Stardust Motel and spaceship on the left.^^
^^I've always wanted to take floaties to Upper Glidden Lake, so this year we made sure to go. We hiked about a mile to the lake and there was no one there (I love when that happens!). We swam, made lunch, fished, and took a ton of pictures.^^
^^My mom's 'big holiday' is the Fourth of July so she always decks out the place with cute decorations. (see previous years here and here).^^
^^Rooftop pool with the best views.^^
^^My dad took us on old mining/logging trails through the mountains on ATVs (you can see trails on the left of Tate). Oh how I miss the trees and cool weather!^^
Our stay in Wallace was only a few days, but we were out and about the entire time. Next Summer we want to take off a few weeks and stay there to work/relax/play. Idaho, you have our hearts!
