Side Trip to Priest Lake Area
Priest Lake in Northern Idaho
Our little 'vacation within a vacation' consisted of a day trip to Priest Lake, about 60 miles north of Post Falls. We rented a car for the day and Eve and I headed north. We had heard that this was a premier mountain and lake paradise of Idaho. Much of the area is National Forest and Woodchuck was in his glory with trees and wild flowers in abundance. We visited the cedar grove (next post), several spots along the lake, a US Forest Service museum, ate lunch at a resort along the lake, drove up the west side of the lake, the east side of the lake and made many stops along the way to look at and photograph wild flowers. Perhaps Woodchuck will feature more posts in the future featuring some of the flowers. On the way home, we stopped for supper at a restaurant at Old Town, ID on the border with Washington State with a view overlooking the snow melt-filled Ponderay River.
