{ASHTON}

We had a great time this 4th of July in Ashton, ID. We met up with my parents, Steph & Matt, and lil bro Berk (who had a mullet hair-do). We hit up the Alpine slide at Jackson hole and hung out a lot on the beautiful river. We floated down the Snake river on the 4th and actually saw a bald eagle in flight; Brade was pretty excited about that. It's so beautiful up there; the skies, the scapes, and of course the river. Can't wait for next year!







Brade took Berk out all night and they light painted while the rest of us heard stories by the fire.

Mick I was almost in tears looking at these pictures. I am so sad that we have missed the river yet another year. I love the one that brayd and berk light painted it is sweet. I'm so glad you guys had a great time. I just think you are so beautiful and I like brayds buzzed head. I'm sad berk cut the mullet I think he should have kept it for football. Great pictures though. Really great

I love that area this time of year. We have family cabins in Alpine Jct.(just below the Snake River). We go there in the summer and raft and it's a magical place. Missed out this year due to our move. Great pics, love the light painting one, too cool!

That sounds like such a nice 4th of July - so relaxing, espeically for you two since you're so busy all the time. I love that picture of the cabin at night, beautiful!

How fun! Those slides look rad! And if the bald eagle excites you guys you should make a trek up here they are EVERYWHERE!!! :)

Beautiful! I especially love the cabin shot.

Hey- if you're looking for another cool spot (and you always are I see) go check out the lavender fields in Mona, Utah- just north of Nephi.

I took my little people there last week and got some amazing shots in the fields of purple. Amazing more because of the setting and much LESS because of my serverely limited photog skills.
