Silver Mountain

I visited Courtney in Idaho.  We took a short road trip to Kellogg, ID and while there road the world's longest sky gondola up the side of Silver Mountain, 4,000 feet.

Two Curious Deer

Two deer in our backyard.  They are young, even though they have lost their spots and so curious about our cat Simon.  They are staring directly at him.

Pacific Ocean for the day!

While Courtney's winter break from college was winding to a close, I asked her if there was anything she hadn't done but wanted to do and she answered "go to the coast".   I didn't think we had anymore days together because the weekend before she left was suppose to be spent out of town with her boyfriend and his family.  Plans changed and in the blink of an eye I rearranged my schedule, filled the car with gas and we were off.  It was a fantastic trip for a spur of the moment escape.  This is a photo of Florence which sits right on the Pacific Ocean.  The downtown is fronted by the coastal inlet.
