We stayed at the Elk’s lodge in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho for several weeks in August.
We explored the area and it is truly beautiful. Unfortunately the smoke from the terrible wildfires have made it difficult to enjoy it to the fullest.
These are some pictures from the downtown area.
Pat found a great pub called Crafted.
There is a beautiful monument to our military. All branches are represented.
We took an all day drive around Coeur D’Alene lake. Wow the scenery was beautiful.
We visited several of the little towns along the way.
This is one of the little towns we passed through called Harrison.
We also visited Coeur d’Alene’s Old Mission State Park. The oldest standing building in all of Idaho is found here, in the Coeur d’Alene’s Old Mission State Park. The Mission of the Sacred Heart or Sacred Heart Mission was constructed between 1850 and 1853 by Catholic missionaries and members of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe.
The next town we visited was Wallace, ID. Here is a link to The history of Wallace.
It has some beautiful architecture and is just a fun town all around.
This is an old mine in the town of Osborne.
