Sawtooth Wilderness: Backpack to Basecamp

This is an 8-day backpack to basecamp trip.

We meet in Ketchum, Idaho, drive into the Sawtooth Wilderness and camp near the trailhead (at about 7.000 ft.). In the morning we pack up and hike in about 7 miles to a beautiful, tiny lake (at about 8,000 ft) where we camp for the next week. There are multiple glorious day hikes - as well as sun-warmed granite to nap on, alpine lakes to swim in and fields of wildflowers to wander through.

We will be enjoying yoga on the rocks with Helen Burke each morning. We will adventure further along the trail each day - to alpine lakes, waterfalls, and high mountains passes. Our last day will be restful as we pack up and prepare to head back down the trail in the morning.

My daughter, Kira McGieson and I are the leaders. We are both Wilderness First Responders and have led many wilderness trips seperately and together.
