A LITTLE SKIING - A LOT OF RAIN - A LOT OF DRIVING

Right after the first we took a little drive over to Wallace, Idaho and stayed in the old Ryan Hotel in downtown Wallace.  Neat place and had fun exploring around the place.  The plan was to go skiing the next day at Silver Mountain Ski Resort near Kellogg, ID.  The next day we got up early, had breakfast in a little cafe with a lot of locals then headed to the ski resort.  On the way Connie looked on line on her phone and found out the winds were to high to allow the gondola to operate at the ski resort.  We went on just to check it out and figured they would open it up a little later.  That was not to be the case.  It took them over 4 hours just to get all the people off the mountain that worked up there.  We did check out the rest of the resort and did some site seeing at Cataldo, ID at the old mission there.  That was pretty interesting even in the rain.  We then drove over to Quinn's Hotsprings near Paradise and stayed there for a couple of nights with a day of skiing at Lookout Pass on the Montana - Idaho border.  Quinn's is a great place to stay and the hotsprings are worth the stop.
