Autumn in North Idaho

My wife and I were blessed to take a date day and see autumn in it’s full glory.  No plans, just drive and see where it would take us.  We followed the trees to my favorite spot in downtown Sandpoint.  The colors were brilliant, the sky crystal blue and the lake pristine.  Here’s a video of the trip, edited to music and mellow.  If you didn’t get a chance to experience fall.  You can experience fall in Sandpoint, Idaho.

Enjoy the simple things in life.

Mama Moose Prepares to Protect Baby Moose

A unique aspect of living in Northern Idaho is the fact that it is “Moose Country”.  When we first moved here we could not wait to see a moose and being able to see a male moose with his paddles was and still is a rare treat.  But even rarer is being able to see a Mama Moose or Cow with her Baby.

The perfect opportunity came during Christmas Break.  We had been seeing a female moose at our salt lick over the course of a couple weeks. Then one morning, as I was leaving our chicken coup, I saw what I thought was a female moose and I was able to get our camera set up to film her.  I set up between our two vehicles, because one does not want to get too close to moose, they are big, elusive, and like their space.  When feeling threatened they will charge and one can get hurt.

With that being said, I was able to have one of the most thrilling experiences being able to see nature up close and personal.  There are moments when it all comes together, us and nature, and what a moment that is!

Enjoy the video.
