Mountain Day!

Hello!!!!  Today I went hiking on a mountain called Schweitzer that looks down on Sandpoint, Idaho.  From the top you can see Lake Pend Oreille.  It's a huge lake surrounding the town that was created during the ice ages by the lake Missoula floods -- it's called "Pend Oreille" because it's shaped like a big ear :-) Here I am jumping over the ski resort building and the lake!


On the trail I found some deer tracks!!! I didn't see the deer who made them, though, but he must have come just before me.


And I found some beautiful flowers called "Indian Paintbrush."


And last but not least, I found some huckleberries!!! Huckleberries are like mountain blueberries, they are a little smaller and they have a slightly different but extremely yummy taste!
