Think of a ski resort and mow the trails with that in mind. _________________________ It was hard to imagine that on the 24th day of September when leaves were changing color and starting to fall, the temperature outside was 88 degrees.

After a restless night at the Sandman Motel, thanks to the 2nd story turquoise-neon-light that kept our room aglow, we arrived at the parking lot to Kootenai Falls.
