Quintessential North Idaho summer
Just about everyone who's lived in North Idaho for a few decades has enjoyed floating the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River. It's river rafting without the rapids or need for a guide. On a hot summer day you can find literally thousands of people in all manner of devices that inflate and later in the season you can enjoy the solitude of far fewer floaters. An informal survey of license plates on the cars and trucks parked alongside the Old River Road tells the tale ... it's a local favorite pastime. Not something that's on the usual tourist radar, an insider's getaway from lakes that are filled with boats and jetskis this time of year.
