Green Bluff Growers is Spokane, WA via Stuck in North Idaho

A visit to Green Bluff

This morning as I sipped my coffee, I watched out the window as the fog and clouds dissipated from the city streets and the morning sun lit the gold leaves still clinging to the trees outside. Fall is here. Earlier this month the days became noticeably shorter and the nights cooler; but the days stayed warm and sunny. Not our typical October. This week though, there’s been a shift and now there’s a bite in the air and early morning…

Leavenworth Oktoberfest

A Different Oktoberfest

Every year I give you all a run-down of the various Oktoberfest celebrations throughout North Idaho. I've listed several beer tasting events by town, did a three-part series about the Leavenworth Oktoberfest and last year highlighted Critfest and the Coeur d'Fondo - two biking events hosted right here in Coeur d'Alene.

It totally doesn't matter that we were the only ones that actually came in costume - at least we won something that night. Can I please point out Kyle's awesome…

Road Trip: Leavenworth, Part 3

Shop and sight see... check. Party at Oktoberfest... check. Explore the beautiful mountains and river... here we go! Due to the craziness of the Leavenworth Marathon, we were unable to hike Icicle River like we initially planned, but thanks to a knowledgeable employee at Leavenworth Mountain Sports, we decided to hike Penstock Trail, just a couple miles west of town.  I am SO glad we did! We actually hiked the trail twice. That's how beautiful it was. On Saturday morning, Kyle…
