There sure was some beautiful scenery as we drove along the eastern shore of Lake Pend Oreille and then as we got farther to the southeast we had the Clark Fork River off and on. The road going through the Coeur d’Alene National Forest is surrounded by grassy fields, is fairly flat, and we had scenic views of beautiful pine covered hills or rocky, sometimes snow capped mountains the entire drive.
Along much of the road, there were warning to watch for Elk, Bighorn Sheep, and deer. We came upon a construction area that had us going on a dirt road for about 3-miles. Just as we were getting on the rough road, I spotted a herd of Elk on the right side and a few Bighorn Sheep on the left , but that was it for the entire drive.
At one of our rest stops, I spotted these pretty little wildflowers, just had to snap a photo. None of my other photos from the car turned out - I really shouldn’t be doing that anyway.
