Stanley Lake Camping

We finally went camping in Idaho! Our goal a few weekends ago was fishing, so we drove in the direction of Stanley looking for lakes with campgrounds, and hopefully, fish. We wound up choosing Stanley Lake, so glad we did! It was so beautiful.
The weather was perfect, highs in the low 70s and at night only got down to mid 40s. It's the warmest weather we've ever gone camping in. 
Here is our excellent campsite. By far the largest, with the best view. 

And really, can we just appreciate the view?

We were there for fishing, and fish we did. The lake was stocked the day we arrived, and there was a bit of a breeze blowing these gorgeous fish right at us. There were times we were reeling in fish with every cast. It was so much fun!

OK, Andrew caught way bigger fish than this one, but this is the only time I had my camera with. This fish was actually tagged(which we reported once we got home). We let this little trout swim away.

So, we spent two days fishing. I did some reading. And we just relaxed, taking in all the wonderful scenery and calm of a mountain lake. 

It was an excellent weekend for camping and we had the perfect spot. We're already looking forward to camping there again sometime.
