Another peaceful and good sleep and woke up to sunshine…..I was on the road by 8.30am with orange juice to keep me going till breakfast.

With Satellite radio

I was able to listen to the live soccer game Women’s World Cup from Germany and the Canadian girls lost a close game 2-1……my GPS keeps me from wrong turns…well most of the time.

The first part of my journey this morning was on the Interstate and soon I was in

You usually don’t see too many interesting places from the Interstate but I did see what looked like a waterfall on my right and I took the next exit to check it out.  I have been doing this ever since I got Ramona if ever I see anything that looks like it might be worth a stop sometimes you think about it and then it is too late…well I always stop and sometimes it is a bust and sometimes a real gem like this one was….Post Falls!!

Another thing I always do is to try and stop at the local Visitor’s service centres they are usually really good and pointing out little gems and this was no exception.  They lady showed my a secondary road in a circular route along the river and also to a National Bison Range..so off I went after leaving her with one of my Canadian key chains….I spent about 40 dollars at the dollar store back home and got these great Canadian key chains 2 for a dollar and I give them away to people who are friendly and helpful…

The road by the river was very pretty

Love the pictures. The buffalo and her baby are so cute. We can't wait to make it out to that area, maybe next summer.
