Coeur d'Alene Lake is gorgeous. We enjoyed our day hiking some of the many trails and taking photos. Still some smoke from the Montana fires.

The lake is clean and fresh and beautiful. Lots of recreational activities for all ages and skill levels. The beaches are a short walk from the downtown. The whole scene there is casual and is a fun time. CDA is a great place to vacation!
