Coeur D’Alene is listed in the book “1000 places to see before you die, so I decided to make a point of stopping and checking it out. It wasn’t worth it. Coeur D’Alene is a nice town on a great lake, and that’s all. I could have died without seeing this place and still died a happy man. I walked around, had an overpriced hotdog and checked out the boardwalk. Things I could have lived without.
However, the road around the lake, highway 97, was another story! I get over how amazing the roads have been over the past few days. Highway 97 hugged the shore of Coeur D’Alene Lake, passed over some mountains and much to my excitement had few barriers preventing someone from flying right off some of those hair pin turns.
An excellent couple of days of riding, life is good.
