Breathtaking view of Idaho, I am lucky to live here.

Real Estate Agent with Sandpoint Realty SP36782

From the very first moment I came to North Idaho I was awe struck.  Not a day goes by that I don't see something absolutely beautiful around me.  Today was a good day in real estate.  We have one offer rounding the corner to an acceptance and another full price on a dream home that is sure to please all.  With the efforts though I was just beat and tired and wanting to get home.


 In all this beauty I am lucky enough to live on a scenic byway that just always takes my breath away.  My "commute" consists of driving through national forests filled with every color of green imaginable.  I must be watchful for a deer, elk or moose in the road, but there is often a eagle, osprey or hawk taking flight, a turtle making its way to the water, a fish jumping high above the water or some little treat from mother nature.   There are so many creeks and water falls that I still loose count at how many I pass by and of course there is the lake which has a different mood each and every day.  I often just stop and snap a picture and rarely do they even come close to the beauty and colors that I am seeing.  Here is tonights photo and as pretty as it is, it isn't even close to seeing it in person.  I count my blessings for landing in such a beautiful and pristine beauty like North Idaho.

Yes Rain, you do live in a very special place.

I used to work up North of Bonners Ferry and fell in love with the mountains and views.

Technically the second I clicked the button placing this in a tangible form it was copyright protected.  That is how the law on copyright works.  To be in the public domain someone actually has to a release making it available for use.  

But to get away from the copyright lesson soapbox, I only wish I captured the full beauty.  It was so much more amazing than what this shows.

I have a sister who lives in Weiser, Idaho.  During my visits there to see her, I have marveled at the natural beauty in your state!
