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.
