ive been told to try that pass as well, but had no idea it was closed other than for winter. thanks for the tip on calling first
tetons are 4+ hours from the boise area, but always worth the trip if you have time.
sawtooths are great, but they are popular around here and generally busy this time of year. especially since they arent currently on fire. even if you dont camp in that specific area, its worth a drive to the lakes to get some pictures.
when will you be here and for how long? if your going to have time during the week, i can point you to some nice places that see lots of use during weekends, but rarely have people around midweek.
