A early spring walk in Riverfront Park

 After the snow of the day before the little warmer an drier weather was a welcome sight! The park was abuzz with activity, people getting out to enjoy a Sunday visit to "The Park". Street musicians put a soundtrack to the beautiful day. Chris the busker was sitting on the bridge playing his guitar and sharing his thoughts in song. One of the many Canadian geese that call the river home seemed to be celebrating the spring that is to come.

Ben Burr Trail

 The Ben Burr Trail is about 2 miles roundtrip and connects Underhill Park with Liberty Park. It is paved and has really pretty setting for an urban trail. You can park in parking lots at either Liberty or Underhilll and walk south up on to the trail. A bridge over Altamont means you don't have to cross any streets, it just runs along the hill. Make sure and go all the way to the west end at Liberty Park so you can see what is left of the stone staircase that led up to what was the end of the trolley line back in the late 1800's,early 1900's.

Coeur d'Alene Idaho Centennial Trail and Riverside Boardwalk

 LOVE walking in Coeur d'Alene wether walking Tubbs Hill, Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive or the Idaho Centennial Trail starting at the Riverside Boardwalk into town as I did today. The views along this stretch of the trail are magical. You pass by the North Idaho College and along the beaches around the point and then into town. The Coeur d'Alene Resort always is a pretty sight and the Cedars floating restaurant with a back drop of snow covered mountains was breath taking. It rained and thunder boomed some while I was trotting along but that just added to the experience!
