.....where we had lunch and toured around the area seeing the Soda Springs Geyser which, when it was drilled into in 1934, flooded the downtown area for weeks until it was successfully capped. It is now controlled by a timer and 'goes off' every hour - just like Old Faithful at Yellowstone.
In the fall of 2014 on a trip to Oregon to see Kari & Ken's new house, we overnighted in Idaho at Jerome. I was so impressed with the Best Western there that I imagined it would be my choice of hotels on any future trips that direction.
When we left Portland with plans to cross Idaho at the upper narrow part on I-90 (a way we had never gone before) Kari told us how pretty Lake Couer d'Alene was early in the morning with the mist rising off it.
So we timed our overnight stay so we would be there to see the lake the next morning. She was right...very pretty. In this photo it almost looks like someone is sending smoke signals.
Idaho has so many beautiful natural areas to see. I'm hoping there is another trip or two for us out to see the kids in Oregon. And you just about have to go through Idaho to do that.
