A Couples’ Retreat
Where Love of Nature and Partner Combine
By Daniel Claar
By the time I get home from work, Jamie has finished packing our truck. After tossing a couple of snacks in the cab, we lock up the rear hatch on our fiberglass shell and hit the road.
Heading north out of Boise, we take Highway 55 and follow it past the small town of Horseshoe Bend, paralleling the Payette River until we hit the Banks intersection. We head east, following the South Fork all the way to Lowman and from there we head farther north into the heart of central Idaho. Nearly three hours after our departure, and a few miles beyond the small outdoor recreation hub known as Stanley, my wife and I arrive at our destination, the trailhead at one of Idaho’s most glorious gems—Redfish Lake.
