Rained out in Coeur d'Alene

For a long time, I had been intrigued by Coeur d'Alene aka CdA, and had this idyllic mental picture of a wonderful lake town. Well today, these dreams were largely drenched as we drove south from Canada under a relentless downpour.

There was no scenery that we could really appreciate on the way to town and that was just okay, because we had received the “scenic treatment” for the entire week. This said, I ignored that Coeur d'Alene, plus a number of communities and Spokane in the nearby state of Washington are lumped in one huge, 680,000 people strong, metro area.

With the rain beating so hard, we were barely able to go for a walk and were not overly impressed by the neighborhood we went through. This will probably take another visit. So what I thought was a quaint little lakeside town is instead, just the tip of a huge metroplex.
So much for that! Not the place I will move to when, and ever if, I'm tired of Park City...
