The Sawtooth mountain range is one of the most beautiful backdrops around. Anike was so awestruck by these mountains as child when her father would bring her to the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch, that she brought her fiance, Matt, and their kids out from England to be married on the lawn of the Ranch. As I drove North on their warm August wedding day, I knew a wildfire had started a few miles north of IRMR and was getting out of control. I kept hoping the smoke wouldn’t be anywhere near, however, it had and was inundated the valley and obscured the peaks by the time I arrived.
As should be the case, Anike and Matt were unaffected by the smoke and were full of bliss. Just as their ceremony began, the winds miraculously shifted 180 degrees and blew most of the smoke away! Congratulations Anike and Matt. I hope Idaho and the IRMR tradition continues with your kids and that we get to see one another again on your next visit!
