I hadn't visited Smiley Creek in years, so Mark and I decided to fly in for lunch at the execellent Smiley Creek Lodge across the road from the airport. As always, the food was great and the scenery was amazing. If you're in the neighborhood, I highly recommend a visit.
Smiley Creek, ID (U87) has a well manicured 4,900 ft. grass strip. It's very easy, as far as approach and obstacles, but the 7,200 ft. elevation means you have to be ultra careful about density altitude in the summer. The airport features a pilots campgroud, hot indoor showers, rental car for local trips and a full time caretaker. Located in the Sawtooth Valley, the surrounding peaks provide an impressive view.
