Lake Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

It is extremely hot in our neck of the woods and outdoor activities are out of the question. It is at times like this when I wish we could spend some time at Lake Coeur d'Alene, located in Idaho.

It would be nice to cool off in this natural lake since the water's average temperature during summertime varies between 30 and 68F.

This is due to the high elevation of the 25 mile long lake which is usually 2,128 feet above sea level.

After a day of lounging at one of the many beaches, paddling on the water, bird watching, soaking in the gorgeous scenery, or cycling, jogging and/or hiking the North Idaho Centennial Trail, there are many other ways to relax.

Pubs and art galleries are bountiful at the city of Coeur d'Alene which is located at the north end, but you can also make plans to visit the Coeur d'Alene Parkway State Park, Heyburn State Park, or follow the Trail of the Coeur d'Alene.

The lake also has a great history and holds some treasures. It was used to transport lumber and as an ice road in winter when it was frozen over. Needless to say some cars never made it across and several automobiles from the early 1900s still sit on the bottom of the lake.

I am not sure if diving is allowed. It sure would be interesting to check out these sunken treasures!
