The Idaho panhandle is home to some nice mountains and great lakes. This is the view of Spirit Lake looking east from Mt. Spokane.
Here's Spirit Lake in the fall.
Post Falls (at Falls Park) has been tamed and marred by a hydro dam, but it's still beautiful during spring run off, and the park is home to many beautiful wildflowers.
Coeur D'Alene is at its best in August with Art on the Green. Here's part of a parade of the New Age Chatauqua.
Lake Pend Oreille is the largest lake in Idaho, and mostly undeveloped due to its mountainous sides. Here Forrest Sondahl makes a cliff jump with Bayview in the distance.
Granite Falls is about on the Idaho Washington border, near Canada, and although technically in Washington, you get to see it here on the Idaho page.
Up in the Silver Valley is a lovely new biketrail, with lots of beautiful scenery.
Right along I-90 at Cataldo is the oldest building in
Idaho--the Cataldo Mission church built 1848-53.
The Silver Valley is very nice.
