Bicyclists tour Idaho

A lone rider on the Bicycle Rides Northwest tour of Idaho crosses the bridge over the Salmon River south of town last week. Hundreds of cyclists from two different tours, Bicycle Rides Northwest and Ride Idaho, came into Challis the same day, Monday, Aug. 7, stayed the night and departed next day on their respective routes.

The two groups were back in town later in the week on their return trips.

Fun with rockets

Nathan Hampton shows youngsters how to pack a parachute into an Estes Rocket.

The fun night was sponsored by the Custer County 4-H Leader’s Council. That group of volunteer 4-H leaders purchased the materials for the rocket launches and also for a stick horse rodeo at the fair. An Aug. 10 Challis Messenger story incorrectly stated the Custer County Fair Board purchased the rocket kits.
