After our overnight in Cabin City we motor out of Montana and into Idaho. The town of Smelterville has a Walmart that allows overnight stays so we do.
On the second day it’s apparent that it’s time to do laundry AGAIN and an internet search tells me there is a laundromat in Pinehurst, just up the road. I plug in the address and we are westward bound toward this cute little town … but there is no laundromat here any longer.
As we had back to Smelterville I spy with my travelling eye (catchy, no?) a sign for the Couer d’Alene River Trail. This would be a nice place to spend the afternoon and walk the boys! We find a spot along the edge of the parking lot so we can have the side doors open while we grab a bite to eat, then we head out.
The paved trail follows the Couer d’Alene River and the old railroad tracks for 70+ miles! Walkers, joggers, and bicycle riders are out in force on this beautiful, sunny day. Recumbent bikes are thick as herds of cattle. They look fun and comfortable.
My photo of the board showing the trail and telling the story about it did not turn out, but you can read about it HERE . Teamwork!
Thanks for stopping by!
