High Noon: JohnA (Hearts) North Idaho

John Austin: I love north Idaho. I sighted my first migratory eagle this morning at Wolf Lodge Bay. There’s something about seeing an eagle flying through the snow showers, against the backdrop of Beauty Bay, that is very special, even from the icy confines of I-90. Deena and I also saw a baby moose on the Trail of the Coeur d’Alene’s recently as it emerged from Cave Lake near our home. Our Great Dane pup noticed it first, and alerted us to the possibility that its mother was nearby. Needless to say we hurried back the way we came, discretion by far the better part of valor. At times like these, when I am surrounded by things that most people will never see, and experience emotions most will never feel, I’m reminded why I love it here.

Question: Why do you love North Idaho?
