Wandering Wednesday – Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA – A Second Day


Question Of The Day

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don’t they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

Our second day was not as sunny and beautiful as the previous day.  The Follow The Sun Tour had hit a roadblock.  We decided to make the best of a crappy day and went for a short (yah right) shopping trip.  I am sure happy that Kohl’s hasn’t hit Canada yet.  An entire store, warehouse sized and not a diversion for guys anywhere to be seen.  Glad I had my phone.  After spending what seemed liked a week in there, we went for a country drive.  We had heard of an interesting road (thinking it was Cammie from the night before, we had a piece of paper with some highlights of the area written on it and I know it wasn’t in either of our handwriting).  It is the Coeur d’Alene Scenic Byway.  Sounds scenic ay any rate.  Here a few snaps we took.

Wish it was sunny and I was on a bike!!

A bit dreary today.

We had also noticed in the 1000 Places To see Before You Die book that there was a restaurant out here that was a must go.  So, go we must.  Unfortunately, they did not know we were coming and were closed.  They should have known.  The name of the place is the Wolf Lodge Inn.  We had to take a few pictures.  Read the sign, very funny.

Wish it was open. It has some character.

The Sign

We finished touring and headed back to town and supper.  The plan is to get up and head for the sun, wherever that may be.

  1. Probably either too expensive or too heavy!

  2. Looks lovely despite the absence of any sunshine. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Great sign. It reminds me of one I pass daily on a fence that reads “The Bull can make it across this field in nine seconds. How fast can you? NO TRESPASSING.”

  4. Kohls os the devils foyer.
    Even with the grey, looks very nice!
