Re: Last minute trip - looking for suggestions?
CG, If you ever get on this trip, north idaho is great. Sandpoint is a fun town on a beautiful lake. A definite must. C'dl is also a great town on a very beautiful lake. If you do get to C'dl, I think they still do a fun river boat ride on the lake for both the lunch time hour and dinner timeish. I spent many summers there and saw it going all the time. Preist lake is also very nice. But if your hubby ain't a walker, then I won't recomend the hike to upper preist lake from lower. There's a great day hike to upper preist that is worth doing just to go up and have a picnic lunch and hike back. let your hubby decide that. As for fire burning, forget it, don't even think about it. I live in southern idaho and we are on fire every where around here. Fire restrictions are in affect I think for the whole state of Idaho. Now if you can go into eastern Washington state, Spokane is worth seeing, but the lakes of northern Idaho are more worth the stay than Spokane. Trust me, I grew up in Spokane. Don't forget Glacier park in Northwest Montana as an idea. hope this helps. elwood
