There is so much going on every day in summer (and wherever I go I have at least one camera with me) that I end up not having time to post about all of the wonderful places we visit, people we meet and things we do! I can't complain, though, I like this kind of life. Today I want to share the photos from a trip we took last weekend to Farragut State Park - it's only 26 miles down south of Sandpoint, which makes for a perfect adventure with limited driving.

This Idaho state park is located on the southern tip of the Lake Pend Oreille and it used to be a WWII era naval training station: there is still a museum and a few architectural objects in the woods from that time. Other than that, there are plenty of camping sites, we spotted a few cute cabins right at the tip overlooking the lake and the mountains (as Liz Lemon would say: "I want to go to there!"), even camping places for people with llamas! I mean, traveling and camping with llamas - it must be the best thing ever! 

Well, at least we want to try and rent a cabin there. There is a big lawn in front of the cabins where I want to put a few soft blankets on the ground and do Idaho stargazing at night. I'm usually not brave enough to stay in the woods/mountains with wild animals and lay there watching the stars. But in this case it's ideal: the sky is clear in the park, there are no city lights, cars or other civilization messes, and at the same time, I'm not too far from the people and the cabins! I really hope we can fit this little adventure into our schedules, maybe in August or early September. It's hard to tell since we have so many plans and adventures in mind for this season.

Beautiful! I love that place so much. The old willow tree off on the other edge of the lawn by the lower cabins is a favorite rendezvous for our gang - we'll have to get together there sometime soon!

This looks like just the place to go camping next, or in that general area. We love exploring too! We just spent Sunday hanging out in Coeur d'alene. You should let me know if you guys explore any close by Spokane areas, would be fun to hang out in nature together :)

Ahhhhh, this is one of my favorite places ever! It's a tradition to go there with the hubster on our birthday (yes, we share a birthday) but we missed out this year because of poor weather and work conflicts. So we'll have to go sometimes later this summer!!! Beautiful pictures!
