Mineral Point

We took the girls on a hike called Mineral Point. It was a 4 mile round trip hike which I thought my girls could handle. Only, I didn't plan on the wasp sting that LuLu got, on her neck, about one and a quarter mile into the hike. I wanted to see what mineral point was and ran until I got to this sign. I thought once we got to Mineral Point we would see Lost Lake. This sign states that Lost lake is still 3 1/2 miles from Mineral Point. I realized at that point we will have to give the trail to Lost Lake a try another time.

This trail was very fun and scenic. We went through patches of red cedar trees and then back out to the ridge where we could see Lake Pend Oreille.

Near the parking area is a location for camping and this beautiful beach.

New City

We moved to a city that has three grocery stores (not counting that big box store whose name I can't mention).  The dog was allowed to come with us.  The cat on the other hand was left in the caring hands of a good friend.  My husband thinks we should just sneak the cat here.  The town is on a lake, a big one.  Here we are at Garfield Bay, but without any lasagna or Odie.  We unpacked out belongings, met some of the neighbors, went swimming, hiking, biking, and got the kids enrolled and started at a new school.  I'm proud to be back in the potato state!
