The shots and love stories came in from 3 folks yesterday. One for Lake George and two for Idaho. Lake George is a no brainier . But Idaho? Not New England? Minnesota? Lake Tahoe? Anyone? Idaho.. I am going to wind up in Idaho with a pack of Weeners and t-shirts.. I have to say though from the images.. Well worth the trip.. And I don’t have to bring potato chips.. That’s for sure…thanks to Wes Yandt.. He said…
No question about it. Priest Lake in Northern Idaho but don’t tell anybody.
It’s gorgeous crystal clear waters are nestled in amongst the majestic Selkirk Mountains. What could be better? Beautiful lake, great cabins, family, friends and awesome WOODYS!! Come join us for the annual Dry Rot show in Sept.
(Pictures show two great woodies built by The Yandt Boatworks; the Greyhound 1921 and the Uncle Bob 1963. The Uncle Bob was just recently restored and the beach fire you can see us burning the old planks)
And the folks at McCalls Boat Works
I have to admit, my favorite Woody Lake is Redfish Lake in Stanley, Idaho
3 hours North of Boise, Idaho
I was raised at Redish Lake during the summer months my family owned and operated this “isolated” and “unknown” lodge and lake for 30+ years it is now the cats meow to the most gorgeous backcountry in the world, except, yielding to the Tetons the lake sits in the Sawtooth mountains and it is usually the coldest place in the United States (West)
We love boat camping there with our woodies the majestic mountains and a good cup of coffee with your woody-afloat is all you need there is nothing better but maybe a little huckle berry picking, cliff jumping, water skiing or just sitting around with friends and soaking in the sun watching one’s D-O-G fish off the dock no matter what.
I vote Redfish Lake as my Fave
