Coeur d'Alene, ID and The Lake

After leaving Montana, we intended to drive toward Seattle. It is of course too far for us, so we stopped in Idaho about midway there in a city called Coeur d'Alene. It's that small stretch of Idaho, maybe 60 miles wide, in between Montana and Washington. It is really quite beautiful, especially compared to some of the plain parts of Idaho, so it was really popular as an Idaho escape destination. We stayed at a place right across from the college, right on the river at the mouth where it enters the lake. We decided to take a break there, and maybe see the lake a bit so we booked two nights.

The stay was peaceful and beautiful. The people were amazingly friendly on our brief venture out of camp. The water was still way to cold to swim, so we decided to skip any water activities and just explored the camp trails. Even our dog Daisy got to explore. It was a nice break in the middle of all the more tourist style stops we had been hitting earlier. Next will be Whidbey Island, WA
