Our Indian summer in North Idaho

It is 82 degrees and there isn’t a cloud in the sky! Lake Coeur d’Alene is like glass today and you can see the smiles of those anxious to get out on the lake. You would never know tomorrow is October 1st! The best hike this season is up around the mountain top lakes. Up in the mountains the leaves are beginning to turn. We head out of the small community on 4WD vehicles in the summer and snowmobiles in the winter. We make it as far as the trail head and then enjoy the majestic walk. We pass waterfalls and all sorts of great stops. One of the lakes is called Moose Lake and you got it – tons of moose lounge around in the lake! It is like something out of Alaska, but it is in our own little private Idaho.

There is a group that left for heli fishing today. They are picked up at the Cougar Lodge (pure luxury!) and flown out to one of the rivers that is adjacent to our National Forest. The nice thing about staying in the lodge is the access to the professional kitchen. They have its use exclusively with a chef coming in 3 times a day.
