From the late 1930s, one of the first picture postcards of Sun Valley, Idaho ...
From Wiki ...
"The first destination winter resort in the U.S. was developed by W. Averell Harriman, the chairman of the Union Pacific Railroad, primarily to increase ridership on U.P. passenger trains in the West.
The Swiss-style Sun Valley Inn (formerly the "Challenger Inn") and village were also part of the initial resort, opening in 1937. Hannigan wanted swimming pools at the resort, "so people won't think skiing is too cold." Both the Lodge and the Inn have heated outdoor swimming pools, circular in shape. Hannigan had the pools designed this way, unique at the time, in the hope they would be widely photographed, providing free publicity, and it worked."

Yes, we think there is a fence along the tree line at the bottom, so linking up with Good Fences. Thank you Tex.
Thank you for stopping by John's Island and your kind comments.
