This Gallery is a trek through idaho.
As you head northward toward the Idaho Panhandle, images like Swan Lake wet your appetite for the "Look" of Idaho. The Coeur d'Alene river dresses in Reflections and Wildlife. Cultural cleverness like Heyburn School's Paul Bunyon and Aqua Park Steam Engine paint the picture of a people with a sense of humor and a respect for the past and a love of Idaho scenery.
I-90 brings you to Silver Valley Idaho pictures. The Northern Pacific Railroad transported huge amounts of metals (gold, zinc, lead and LOTS of silver) from this area...known as the "Silver Capital of the World". Human effort, seen by The Sunshine Memorial and Wallace Mining Park, has been required to enable this feat. Every building in Wallace, the hub of this area, is in the National Historic Registry. The Cataldo Mission of the Sacred Heart has born witness to the harsh realities of this area since 1853.
You can enter the Panhandle from the south or from the City of Flags, in Newport, WA. Either way, delicious sunsets like that of Sandpoint City Park and delicate reflective clouds over East Hope open your door to Lake Pend Oreille. Waterliles show that plants thrive here and man's unique use of an old bridge across Sand Creek (Coldwater Creek Clothing Store) show man thrives here as well. Traveling through gargantuan canyons, you come to Moyie Springs Dam which services Bonners Ferry. It harnesses the Moyie River which starts in Canada, pulses through the hydroelectric dam and shortly joins the Kootenai River.
There are many visual tales to tell in a romp through the Panhandle. Priest Lake Bears welcome visitors to Coolin in the Kaniksu National Forest. There you can fish Priest Lake in sight of the Kootenai Mountain Range...or watch caribou tiptoe through the Marshes of Soldier Creek.from "Compelling Landscapes" Gallery 49...
