A road trip called "gorge"-ous, day five Tuesday June 11th.

After breakfast at the hotel we decided to stop by Sandpoint City Beach for a morning stroll before heading off home. With it being early on a weekday it was quite empty and we enjoyed the views and the quiet.

 Refreshed by the morning air we hit the road into the woods of Northern Idaho. Crossed the border at Easport and made our way to Fernie. Got out there to stretch our legs for a bit on the road up to Mount Fernie Provincial Park.

From there we continued east on Highway 3, north on 22, across to Nanton and then north to Calgary on Highway #2. Went out for supper before heading home.

Welcome home.... arrived in Calgary early in the rush hour!
To wrap things up... enjoyed the trip in spite of the rocky start and having to take the van rather than the Festiva. We'd like to head back to the Portland area again perhaps for a little longer. One thing we weren't able to squeeze in was a visit to see the infamous "Spruce Goose".

Here's to the next road trip!
