We spent a beautiful Memorial Day weekend in Idaho at Farragut State Park just north of Coeur d’Alene.
The weather was nearly perfect, with 75-degree, sunny days. Our campground was packed to the brim! We’d booked the last spot available. But it had a HUGE benefit of having not one, not two, but five disc golf courses. Andy was in heaven.
We’d decided to spend four nights at the campground so as to avoid traveling over the holiday weekend — we didn’t want to compete for campsites during such a popular time. And all the animals were happy to have the break from traveling.
We took an afternoon to get some tasks done — grocery shopping and a trip to the laundromat, where we did laundry and planned out the next leg of our journey.
We took some time to rest, and read, and play video games (which little Teddy seemed to enjoy).
It was a beautiful place, someplace we’d love to visit again. But it seems that Idaho isn’t going to be our final resting spot. It just didn’t feel like home to us. We set out on the road for our next stop. It’s a very long driving day today. We decided to split up the travel time with a pitstop to a used bookstore in the little town of Alberton, MT.
They advertised a gigantic selection of books — and they weren’t kidding. We both came out with some new/used treasures.
Back on the road again and heading to our next site. We are still a few hours away, but it’s hard to complain with the beautiful, emerald tree-covered hills, snow-capped mountains and roaring streams. Montana is a stunning place!
