From Erin Buell, Outreach Coordinator St. Luke’s Center for Community Health, Hailey

Erin Buell’s advice for good health is to “Enjoy recreation time with your friends and family, and experience fun, exercise, fresh air, and smiles!”

Erin makes sure that she and her family spend as much time outdoors as they possibly can. And in the beautiful Wood River Valley, that’s not hard to do. From the thrills of skiing at world-famous Sun Valley, to 19 miles of beautiful scenery any time of year on the Harriman Trail, and everything in between, Erin knows she’s lucky to live in an outdoor paradise.

But, hey, this is Idaho! Almost everywhere you turn is an outdoor paradise. There are trails to ride, hills to hike, rivers to float, and lakes to swim. And with our mild climate, you can get out and enjoy it any time of year—even in February!
