Float the Coeur d'Alene River before summer's over.

Float On

Float the Coeur d'Alene River before summer's gone for good It's August. Which in North Idaho translates to: It's time to cram in everything you haven't gotten to do yet before fall gets here and it's suddenly too cold to be outside not in a parka. One thing that should definitely be on your list is to float the North Fork of the Cd'A River. Not only is it beautiful and a great way to see some wildlife, it's completely…

A quick trip to Riley Creek

Road Trippin’ – Seattle Marathon

 Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! We decided to do something a little different this year and I'm hoping to make it a new tradition. Instead of joining the hoards of people at Black Friday sales and getting trampled over a shirt, we hopped in the car with one of my besties and my brother-in-law and drove to Seattle for the Seattle Marathon. I successfully completed my first half marathon at 2:13! I know it's not great, but it's…
