    • Thanks Matti. There is a large section of Idaho that was given the Coeur d’Alene name for its beautiful wheat fields. This mountain range also received the name.
      I hope you Christmas was a wonderful one!

  33. Well….it was a cold, cold day.
    It’s supposed to snow tonight.
    If it does, it will be the first snow that we have had here (we have had 2 ice storms…no snow).
    Love your photo. It will never look quite that spellbinding and dramatic here! πŸ˜‰

    • We are supposed to snow tonight also, but it won’t amount to much I’m afraid. The high country around here has quite a bit now and that’s where we need it. The nearest ski area (35 air miles) now has a 66 inch base. I’d love to have another foot or two here though before winter is over.
