Silver City is the perfect day drive. The two lane highway has gorgeously desolate scenery, and it takes just enough time to feel like a road trip, minus the leg cramps and gas station bathrooms. I took Alena and Connor for their first time and it was fantastic. We hiked a mountain of loose rocks, ate delicious mother-made sammies, peed outside, and evil knievel-ed it up some cliffs for an epic photoshoot.
I've never before noticed how quickly the state of Idaho can turn into something far more comical.
