I ran 3 goal marathon paced miles, which pretty much means I ran about as fast as I could for three miles! It was my longest run since running the Missoula Marathon on July 12 and it went well. I picked up my dog for the last 2 miles so she could get some exercise before we hit the road to head south towards Boise.
Earlier this week, we were in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, which was crowded with tourists from what I could tell after grocery shopping and overhearing a store employee complain about the traffic. We stayed outside of the city, in Post Falls, where I got in a few runs from the Cabella's store where we stayed. They even had dog kennels there for campers!
Before we drove into Coeur D'Alene, we stopped in Sandpoint, Idaho, and visited the farmer's market for some good food like sun-dried tomato goat cheese and zucchini bread. I forgot to write earlier that we found raspberries and a few blackberries, too, in Montana along a drive in the woods.
The day we left Glacier National Park, they evacuated part of the park because of fires. We left on just the right day! When we were on our way out of Montana and heading towards Idaho, we came across Foys Lake. The color of the lake was just beautiful.
On a later day, we drove through McCall, Idaho, but if we're ever back there, I want to stop in that cute little wooded lake town to explore. We did stop for a lunch break on the way to Boise, in the middle of nowhere or also known as Lucille Recreation Park, and found people in the bushes which led to a discovery... We picked 2 cups of blackberries!
