In the interest of not waiting for our dreams to happen, Jeremy and I recently executed another one of our “plans.” Because we dream of being able to take off and discover the many hidden gems in our state and country, we decided to start by exploring yet another back road.
The picnic got packed, the tank got filled, Roxy took her position in the back seat of the truck, and off we went, in search of another mountain lake.
We ventured into the mountains to an out of the way Idaho reservoir, where I spotted an eagle having a bit of lunch.
From there, we climbed up a US Forest Service road to the top of the world, until we arrived at Trinity Lake, a beautiful little alpine lake in the Boise National Forest.
If you look closely, or zoom in, you’ll see the cow moose having a little salad lunch in the shoreline waters on the other side!
I tried to take a selfie with the moose, but missed the moose entirely! What can I say…the sun was in my eyes! We had a nice lunch and enjoyed the afternoon, but sadly we needed to start the trip back to avoid traveling down steep mountain roads in the dark.
Jeremy is so patient with me each time I yell, “Stop!” because I’ve spotted some kind of eye candy like this splashy little creek in the afternoon sun.
It was a step in the right direction, not waiting for every little detail in order to pursue our dreams. But it made us even more determined to move the plan forward. If we had been in our dream travel van, we would have been able to stay longer and travel farther from home. How delicious it will be to pull out the chairs, pop a bottle of wine and view the stars from a location such as this.
Needless to say, we now have multiple salesmen hunting for the travel van which meets our specific requirements, and I’ve spent way too much time on line researching. We’re getting close to pulling the trigger. Stay tuned!
