I live in Idaho Falls.Years ago back in the '90's, I saw a picture of fast waters and natural beauty in a National Geographic of Coeur D'Alene, Idaho. Frustrated with my Hippiesque bohemian ways being transformed into a greedy entry way to gangs and higher drugs, I did not like where I lived. I used to joke with my kids, husband and the boyfriend of six years that Idee Ho and you all are gonna follow.
These are kind of the pictures I saw in Nat Geo,
but Nat Geo was better, of course.
This is Post Falls Dam near Coeur D'Alene, Idaho.
Other pictures below are of what the article said
of the nature around CDA. It supposedly had the
largest Osprey (water eagle) population of over
10,000 at the time.

the gallery seeks and destroys photo links a sign of the new age of copyright protection, but go see this gallery it is awesome. You would think they like us to share link tastes of their work. It is free advertising. Guess not....

I was really tired of metro militant ghetto gang hell. Ideeho in my mind was a place where that all was not happening.

I ended up here in Idaho Falls, but Coeur D'Alene
was my first choice.
It was my youngest daughter who moved here in 2004.
I was living 6 hours northeast near Billings, MT.
I ended up here three years later, after I actually
saw my grandchildren for the first time.
I tell my youngest now the she da HO and I followed.
It took me from that first magazine picture when she
was still small to her growing up to be here.
It was Idaho our thumbtack in the map!

If I actually was devout to the religion I was born, I would figure that St. Francis would be my patron or at least kindred. All those little wafers since I was seven had to amount to some kind of Catholic guardianship. My mom still prays for me.
