Welcome to North Idaho

To live in a place other people dream of visiting is incredible. Through the lens of my camera OnLocation North Idaho will bring you a slice of life as we know it in the Idaho panhandle. Enjoy!

Beavers at work

Down by the Spokane River I came across several tree stumps left by eager beavers. For some reason the beavers left this one unfinished.

Around the bend

The Spokane River rushes around the bend near Corbin Park in Post Falls. It's uncommon to see the banks without snow and ice during the third week of January. Dozens of disc golfers were enjoying the sunny, 40+ degree day at the park.

How the big boys go sledding!

Coeur d'Alene Realtor Tom Torgerson loves where he lives and loves "hill climbin'" in the great North Idaho outdoors on his modified Ski-Doo 800 Summit X. This photo of Tom was taken by Rand Wichman above Burke Canyon in Shoshone County.

Winter Sunset

This gorgeous view of a recent winter sunset was taken from atop Fernan Hill with Fernan Lake in the foreground and Lake Coeur d'Alene in the distance. Thanks Tom Torgerson!

Out and About

I've not been out OnLocation as much in recent weeks, tied to the computer it seems. But I'm not the only one in these parts who loves where I live so you'll see more photos from friends who are out enjoying the great North Idaho outdoors. Email a scenic winter photo to mainstreet@cdapress.com and if it's posted here, I'll credit the photographer. Let me know where you were and when. Thanks!
