Day 11: Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

We are spending three nights in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Today we are up early and taking the scenic byway round Coeur d'Alene lake, looping round to Mission Landing at Cataldo. We visit the Jesuit Mission, said to be the oldest building in Idaho. This picture reminded me of the old joke: "You know you are a redneck when you mow the lawn and find a car!"
On to Kellogg and Wardner, scene of the dynamiting of the mine concentrator in 1899. We take coffee at Josie's Full of Beans and visit the mining museum in Kellogg - wonderful old photographs. Back to town via Smelterville.
