The Lost River Valley
This week I am in the Lost River Valley in Idaho, the location of our family ranch and homestead. This picture shows a view across the grasslands surrounding the slough, a wetlands area which is next to our original homestead located at Whiskey Springs.
At this link, you can see a picture of the cabin in which my grandfather, Ferry Larter, was born. It was originally a stage coach stop, operated by my great-grandfather, Claude Larter, who drove the passenger stage between Mackay and Challis.
I'm visiting the Lost River Valley this week for a very special reason: to celebrate the 98th birthday of my grandmother, Mabelle Larter, who still lives in her own home in Mackay, Idaho. Happy birthday, grandma! It's great to be here with you.
