Who can forget their first view of the Sawtooth Mountains — one of the West’s most iconic landscapes. During the summer months, it is not unusual to find hikers from all over the world utilizing the 350 miles of trails that connect many of the 400 lakes scattered throughout the distinctive granite peaks.
Sawtooths on My Mind examines the allure of this remarkable mountain range, from the point of view of people who are seeing it for the first time and folks who have worked to preserve the unique flavor of the region.
The Outdoor Idaho crew hikes deep into the Sawtooth National Recreation Area to capture the magic of one of the West’s youngest batholiths. The extremes of weather, including relatively recent glacial activity, have earned the Sawtooths their distinctive name.
“This is The People’s Wilderness, so accessible and so beloved,” says producer Bruce Reichert. “Visitors who are content to spend their time at Redfish Lake and lifetime caretakers who worry about the fragility of this area — they all speak from the heart about one of Idaho’s truly inspiring landscapes.”
