Morning on Eddy peak

Morning on Eddy Peak

The photo I posted yesterday reminded me of another morning in 2010 at the top of Eddy Peak located in the Coeur d’Alene mountains overlooking the Clark Fork River valley.

    • This was 4,500 feet above the valley below those clouds. When I left the valley, it was raining lightly and rained all day.

    • Thanks Reed. I don’t get to see those conditions every day, but it’s really pretty when I do.

    • I do. It’s always exciting to go to a place like that, but the best part is just being there.

    • I know those feelings. They come often on the mountain tops. The high back country is an incredible place.

  8. Another lovely view. I could stand on the mountain looking over the cloud cover for hours if I was there.

    Reminds me of when I was a small child and our family flew in a 50? seater plane over to the island state of Tasmania to stay with my maternal Grandmother for the summer school holidays. There was something magical about being above the cloud layer. I felt the same in 1975 when I took my first overseas trip to Asia.

    • I did when I was there and I remember there was an icy wind sweeping over the mountain that day and I had to pull a warmer jacket out of my pack so I could enjoy the scenes longer.

      It’s magical to just look at the sky, but even more so to be right up in it.

    • Well Ron, you know what these mountains can be like! That day just turned out to be spectacular up there while it rained all day down in the valley.

    • It sure is. The best part is knowing that it’s old growth forest and that it’s doing so well.

    • I do too. It provides a connection to the Earth that has been all but forgotten now.
