Eye Candy Vacation

We have just returned from a wonderful trip to the Northwest. Today's post is made up of some of our snapshots. I'll include descriptions, but mostly, this post is a vacation from writing for me, and scenic eye candy for you!

driving north on Interstate 25 through Wyoming
.
The headstone in center of photo with black markings is where
General Custer actually fell off his horse in
the Battle of Little Big Horn, Wyoming
(his body is buried at West Point)
.
entering Idaho on Interstate 90 after a wonderful drive
through beautiful Montana
.
expansion bridge over Lake Coeur d'Alene
.
the resort and boat docks at Lake Coeur d'Alene.
We did not stay there but enjoyed walking through the lobby
.
the floating boat dock at Lake Coeur d'Alene is the
longest in the world (hold onto the rail!)
.
enjoying the deck chairs

.
Admiring the engineering work of German immigrant Frederick Post,
channeling the water from Lake Coeur d'Alene to the Spokane River
.
awesomely tall, beautiful trees at Post Falls, Idaho
.
We enjoyed a 90-minute charter boat cruise on Lake Coeur d'Alene
.
inside the charter boat cruise
.
float plane tours are available over the lake
.
Luxurious homes are tucked into the trees along the
130-mile shoreline of Lake Coeur d'Alene
.
Hayden Lake, north of Coeur d'Alene
.
art in the downtown area of Coeur d'Alene
.
Water from the Spokane River in downtown Spokane, Washington
is used to produce electricity at the power plant
.
My idea of the perfect vacation is to read
among the gentle sounds of nature in a quiet park
.
geese -- the source of some of those 'gentle sounds of nature'
.
a really cute guy tucked in among the forest trees
.
Coeur d'Alene and a great vacation in the rear view mirror
.
We enjoyed a lot of good cooking on our vacation!
Cracker Barrel

I'm finishing up with the laundry and Beloved is getting caught up on the mail, so I hope you've enjoyed our quick photo vacation.

  2. What beautiful eye candy photos, smiles. I have always wanted to go to Montana and Idaho. I had no idea that Custer was buried at West Point, how in the world did I miss that?-{{{giggling}}}--(when we visited there)

    Have a beautiful day friend.
