North Idaho in October…could anything be more beautiful? The family rented bicycles and took to the high mountains on the Trail of the Hiawatha. Breathtaking scenery everywhere with the fall colors in full swing all viewed from the comfort of this historic trail. Back in the afternoon to enjoy Oktoberfest in Coeur d’Alene with downtown concerts in the plaza and wine tasting of local Paciifc Northwest wines and instruction from a guest chef on preparing wild game. The view this evening from the deck of our private lakefront cabin is of the moon rippling over the water as the leaves fall gently onto the beach.
