Lake Petite ID:  Situated in south-central Idaho, the Sawtooth mountains extend into Utah.  The forest and mountains boast some 1,100 lakes and more than 3,000 miles of rivers and streams.  Brady Stewart and three friends went to Idaho on a lark from 1909 thru early 1912.  As part of the Mondell Homestead Act, they received a grant of 160 acres north of the Snake River.  Brady Stewart photographed the adventures of farming along with the spectacular landscapes. To give family and friends a better feel for the adventure, he hand-color black and white negatives into full-color 3x4 lantern slides.  The Process:  He contacted a negative with another negative to create a positive slide.  He then selected a fine brush and colors and meticulously created full-color slides.
