      Priest Lake, Idaho on highway 95 to the north is the jewel of seasonal fun for everyone. With over 400 miles of groomed snowmobile trails to explore in the winter you won’t run out of all there is to see and do in this quiet wilderness. If you are into the physical beauty of skiing you won’t want to pass up the six Nordic sports venues or the dozens of powder snow bowls all up to the challenge from beginner to expert.

      You can got information on all trails and sites by calling 1-888-774-3785. They will give you maps, directions and safety tips for the winter outdoor activities. It is best to let someone know where you are going and when you will return. It is a vast forest and you can become lost if you leave the


      trail. With information left about your return the forest service will know where to start a search in case you don’t return on time. It saves money, time and it saves your life.

      As winter melts away to spring in the Selkirk Mountains you’ll find miles and miles of hiking trails for your pleasure. If you are into photography don’t forget your camera. Wildlife is on every turn of the many trails, but beware of the aggressive ones. Take your picture quietly and be on your way. As you hike along the trail you may want to carry a container of some kind with you because this area is famous for the wild huckleberries enjoyed by human and wildlife alike. If you don’t have a container don’t worry. Most of the eateries in the area will have ...


      • a special featuring this delicious delight in one form or another.

        This far north the days are long and the nights are short, but it makes for the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises anywhere in the world. You can lay on a beach as your day of fishing finishes and watch the sun sink behind the mountains. The river will pick up all the colors and reflect a paradise of peace. You can become lost in the silence and beauty for a few minutes or for a few hours. If you are camping you can lay awake at night and stare at the stars, because civilization can’t interfere with the wilderness you’ll find yourself in.

        The lake is a deep blue with fish close to the surface. Get your license and fish from shore or from your boat. There

        are hidden fishing spots along the shore line and along the mountain line of this great lake. You can also just explore the shore line and the forest. If you are lucky you’ll be able to catch one of the many moose feeding at the waters edge. Please do not approach them. They are very strong swimmers and can dump your boat with the huge antlers they carry on their head. They are plant eating animals and will not eat meat, but they will attack if they feel they are in danger.

        So pack your gear, pack up the kids and family and head for the great north. Winter for skiing and snow mobiles. Summer for hiking, swimming, boating and fishing. This is a vacation that will carry you through to the next year when the fun can start over again.
