Scary Mountain Town

Okay let’s face it, you roll into anywhere in the mountains after midnight and whaddaya get??

That’s right a scene from the Blair Witch Project!!

Don’t Pick It, Just Click It!!

Scary as hell, am I right. Don’t answer that. It’s okay. I know that I’m right. I’ve driven into many a campsites and car camping situations and if you are among the pines with car headlights hitting them, your mind says it’s cool…. it’s a place I love and feel comfortable in the day, I’ve got no reason to be scared. The mountains are my happy place. When those headlights peer through the trees and the engine shuts off…. I know babydoook or babadook or some cougar (human or cat,) is waiting to skin me alive and hang me from a tree. Scary!

Crouch = Typical Boring Ass Idaho Mountain Town

Okay, “Mountain Towns,”… we can all agree that they are the best sorta community-living-tourist-loving-playground in your backyard thing going in the Good Ole US of A. In Idaho we have so many, so many great mountain towns…. West Yellowstone, Couer D’Alene, Mountain Home (hey it’s in the title, it must be in the middle of the mountains), Sandpoint, Kellogg, Bellevue-Hailey-Ketchum-Sun Valley Corridor, New Meadows, Riggins, and hell yes even widdle ole bitty McCall ain’t too shabby of a choice.

The really good ones we like to keep secret, all to ourselves. I won’t say the most kick-ass mountain town in Idaho is the one I am in now because Stanley and Loman and even Banks and dare I say… Horseshoe Bend and Emmett are competitive for the title. Yes, I won’t say it. That one I’ll keep 3-lock boxed a secret.

Yes Elk Susan!!

Fill solar eclipse at night, yes this town has that Too!!
