August 2009 Road Trip - The Way Home (74)

From Spokane we proceeded to Coeur d'Alene , a place I have a hard time spelling! Coeur d'Alene is famous for its outlet shopping and the lake. We didn't do any shopping there other than a quick stop at another Jo Ann Fabrics store. Of course I bought a bit more. We stopped at the lake to take a look.



From there we toddled on to Sandpoint - much easier to spell. We spent a bit more time there and stayed overnight at another Quality Inn. Apparently Quality Inn does not do "quality control." This one was not nearly as nice as the Spokane QI - so beware - they seem to be location specific. Anyway - Sandpoint is another nice place - sort of touristy.





Note the train.












Mini Lady Liberty - you'll see the real thing in the next series of posts when I (finally) get around to putting up our New York pix. Too many pix, too little time.
We stayed one night in Sandpoint and hit the road the following morning.
Following are some Idaho country shots.

"Barber Ship" - in a small town somewhere before we crossed into Canada.







Here we are back in Canada. Moyie Lake, BC.






Near Wasa, BC.



From Radium to Lake Louise.







We saw this little black bear near Radium.









Above and below - aside from showing some interesting weather, show the results of forest fire. The trees on the mountain were burned out a few years ago.





So there you have it. Yet another road trip. This was back in August.
Our next trip was to New York City in early November. So that's coming up.
