They had three children and in 1962 they moved from the Minneapolis area to Indian Creek Ranch in Idaho where Wally was an outfitter and guide in the wilderness area. After moving into Salmon, Wally went back to building houses and later became building inspector for the city of Salmon and for Lemhi County.
