Wildlife Abounds On Trail Of CdAs

On his Outdoors blog, Rich Landers publishes the experiences of a group of bicyclists who recently enjoyed the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes: “We did a key exchange on Trail of Cd'A Sunday late afternoon/evening. It was spectacularly beautiful with the dark threatening clouds. All the colors seemed intensified, the wind had calmed and there were reflections in the water everywhere. Brisk 54 degrees and the trail was pretty much empty except around Harrison. The North Fork of the Coeur d'alene had mist on it by 6 p.m.  Fly fishermen were out; fish were surfacing.  Evidence of the river's flooding was still apparent. The area of Bull Run to Cataldo was full of wildlife: Three moose, one elk swam and exited onto the hillside, deer, pelicans, and all sorts of bird life.” More here.

Question: Have you ridden the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes? Impression?
