Our End of Wolf Lodge Bay

 On a warm summer afternoon we set out on a walk to see if we could catch a glimpse of the Great Blue Heron who frequents the waters by our campground. The Lake Coeur d'Alene Camping Resort is at the very top end of the Lake at its eastern-most point, right off Wolf Lodge Bay, and next to I-90. In this view, looking towards the campground, you can see in the center of the photo a trailer and a motorhome on the hillside. They are the workampers' RVs, high above the rest of the campground. Our 5th wheel is too big to have gotten up there so we have a large spot amongst all the other campers. We miss out on the terrific view the other workers have, but I can't imagine getting up into that spot right on the cliff, let alone getting back down!

 Still looking towards the campground, hidden in the trees, we see what appears to be a beautiful stretch of green grass, but is actually reeds growing in the water. This is where we often see the Great Blue Heron standing watch, waiting for his dinner to swim by.

 I love the summer daisies all along the roads! They are so cheerful and pretty!

Back home, at the end of our walk, we stopped to visit with one of the workampers, Mike, who lives in the trailer up on the cliff seen in the first photo. He gets plenty of exercise coming to and going from work, so is happy to ride in the golf cart while on duty! We work with a great bunch of people here and are so happy to be in this beautiful part of our country!
