Hells Gate State Park Marina Boat Tours

The drive from Weiser to Lewiston along Hwy 95 is one of our favorite drives.  From New Meadows to Whitebird the highway parallels the Little Salmon River and provides great views and wonderful rest areas (pull-offs) which are plentiful and spacious. These are great for a lunch break, a rest, or some boondocking.  Depending on the season there can be …

Monroe Creek RV Park Weiser Idaho

  The weather changed that day from Nevada from being cold, wet, and windy to southern Idaho being hot and dry. It was in the 90’s (Fahrenheit) when we arrived in the early afternoon.  We had a very warm night and even with the windows open we heard very little traffic. This RV park offers a little of everything from …

Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes

  We love riding the 72-mile bike trail called the “Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes”. It starts in Plummer, Idaho and winds its way along the southern edge of Lake Coeur d’Alene, on up the east side of the lake to Harrison, and then follows the Coeur d’Alene River on up into the mountains to Montana near Lookout Pass, Idaho. …

Those Young Guys - Hayden Lake Idaho

Really? The end of summer? Almost. How can that be? Seems like summer just started. This weekend is Labor Day weekend and many schools start next week. That means….drum roll please…we will have the lakes and rivers to ourselves! Awesome! Especially if a bit of an Indian Summer decides to sneak it’s way in to our area. We decided to …

Hayden Lake Idaho Waverunners

Yes, it has been hot in the Idaho Panhandle. We have been reaching temperatures up in the high 90’s F, i..e, high 30’s C. Not only that but central and eastern Washington have been battling fires which means the prevailing winds bring some of the smoke our way.  The skies have been a bit hazy the past week and the …

Hayden Lake Idaho

It is a lovely, beautiful, warm day so we thought we would head to the lake and take a spin (and lunch) on the pontoon boat before the madness that is the 4th of July weekend sets in. It was before lunch and The Boathouse Restaurant was all set up for their lunchtime patrons. Our lunch was packed so we …

That’s Coeur d’Alene for those folks not familiar with the Inland Northwest. Yes, today is the Ironman in CDA. We look forward to it every year, as a spectator not a participant. It’s a triathlon consisting of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride, and a 26.2-mile marathon (42.2 km) run. It makes me tired just …

Hayden Lake Idaho WaveRunners

Just enjoying the summer. We had quite a bit of rain recently along with some cold weather, at least cold for the summer. Now the weather has turned to summer and with the long days and the great sun we need to get out and about. So we headed off for a spin around the lake. And how fun it …

Those Young Guys - Ponderosa Pine

Another beautiful day for a motorcycle ride. Can you say “School’s Out for Summer.”?  Today is the last day of school for many kids in this area so we thought we should take advantage of peace and quiet before the roar of summer! We decided to head out to Post Falls, Idaho south of the Spokane River and head on …

How can you not love spring, especially in the Idaho panhandle? With the sweet smell of blossoms, the heady smell of pine, wildlife, and the warm and lazy days. A beautiful place to be in the spring.
