One day we decided to get out of the house & venture around a bit. Hubs has all these places he has come across through his area familiarization of his district & he likes to show it all to us when we have time. There are so many beautiful places to go see here, I don’t think we will ever run out. On this particular trip we decided to go to some other areas of Lake Pend Oreille. I have shared with you Bayview before but this is the largest lake in the region & so there is lots to see. We headed up to the lookout before heading down to the boat launch. This lake is the 5th deepest in the nation & the Navy actually tests submarines in it. Unreal!! It’s also formed from a glacier & boy is it COLD!! I don’t think we will ever swim in it- even in the summer. But it’s sure nice to look at.
I had planned on trying to do a mini-shoot with the kids while out there. I had my beloved 85mm on the camera & got out of the car & started walking. I quickly realized that I really wanted my wide angle because it was FAR TOO COLD to spend any length of time out there to do a shoot. Nope!!! My hands could barely push the shutter & it was hard to hold the camera. So I guess I will have to either go back when it’s warmer & try the shoot again- or go back on any kind of day & capture some wider views. I am sure I will be sharing views from here often. It’s close & there is so much of it to explore.
