Dog Days of Winter

The last day of February in North Idaho was a great one ... sunny and nary a snowflake in sight. This was the perfect day for runners, both two and four-legged, and this duo on Poleline Avenue were among the many out enjoying the dog days of winter.

White Tail on watch

This white tail deer stood sentry Sunday in a field across from Black Rock Golf Course. As I drove away, several deer emerged from the cover of tall grass to the right.

The view

With the exception of the mountain ski resorts, North Idaho has been relatively snowless this winter. Sunshine this week and temperatures nearing 50 created crowds of people at the local car wash, seizing the opportunity to wash the winter grime away. This view from the driver's seat is likely one many of us will see over the weekend.

On a winter's day mid-morning fog over Lake Coeur d'Alene quickly disappears when the sun comes through the clouds over Independence Point.

Trophy Elk

There's no shortage of wildlife viewing in North Idaho but a rather unique sight is an elk ranch on Hwy. 95 south of Coeur d'Alene near Rockford Bay. This winter there are nearly 50 of the magnificent creatures with impressive antlers visible from the highway.

OnLocation at the Capitol

I went OnLocation about 400 miles south and took in a tour of the newly-renovated state capitol building in Boise. Definately worth seeing! More info HERE.
