On Saturday, a friend and I were driving back from the Heise area after spending the afternoon rock climbing near Wolf Flats and witnessed one of the world’s great free gifts: an amazing sunset.

Race to the top

Backcountry skiing competition is garnering regional and international status with a world-caliber qualifying event in McCall next month and a shot at Olympic sanctioning in the future.

Bird houses are not only a great way to spend a few winter evenings, but also a wonderful activity for kids to participate in.

The change to daylight saving time forced me to contemplate the long, dark winter evenings ahead. I do hope to get out and enjoy some nighttime activities, but reality suggests that there are still going to be a lot of hours spent at home.
