A Drive Through Heyburn
On Sunday we went for a drive to Heyburn State Park. I had never been there, at least not in the park. Two years ago for my birthday, we took a cruise down Lake Coeur d'Alene to the mouth of the St. Joe, and we went along the park before turning around and heading back. My hubby went through the area a few days ago when he had to go to a job site in St. Maries, and said it was pretty and we should go check it out for the afternoon. We loaded up the truck and the dog, and off we went. The park is part of the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes bike trail, so next time we go we will definitely take our bikes and enjoy some of the 72 mile trail that goes along Lake Coeur d'Alene. We did get a few geocaches while there, and enjoyed the scenery, the water lilies, and the time together. We made the loop back through St. Maries, Harrison, and along the lake. There were a lot of people out, so we didn't really see any wildlife except a few osprey and ducks. It was a beautiful day for a drive and as usual, we enjoyed the adventures of discovering new places together.
