Up at way too early o’clock to hit the road before the traffic was in full swing. I’m better at staying up until 5:00 AM than waking up at that hour! It was a full day on the road. We stopped at the Couer d’ Alene Casino for a lunch. Another newer well decorated resort. We spent an hour or so there and then continued onto Heyburn State Park.
Evidently Reserve America made a small error in our reservation and we were booked into a tent site. The camp host found us a spot and then he and another camper helped JP get Lucky into a near impossible RV spot. They cut down a small tree and JP eased an almost jack-knifed Lucky into our spot. Whew – that was a tough way to end the day
Note: As we were coming into Heyburn Lake (the REALLY long, long way Siri decided to take us) a good-sized bear ran across the road in front of us. Certainly was a surprise! He/she had a shiny blue-black coat – but was gone in a heartbeat!
