my joy, it has a great ice cream shop, so I had to stop and treat myself to two big scoops of ice cream (huckleberry and mint chocolate chip). The ice cream provided me with enough energy to finish the final 20 miles of the ride. As I finished the ride, I realized how lucky I am to have spent time in a beautiful place to relax and revitalize.
Our referrals continue to be one of the best ways clients find us, and we deeply appreciate it! for your trust and confidence. Thank you this part of our beautiful country. Riding on the trail makes me feel both peaceful and blissful. The trail is so long, you seldom see other riders. My first encounter with other living creatures today was about 10 miles into the ride, when I came upon two large deer that were walking down the trail toward me. Fortunately, they decided the meadow was a better place to be. The trail is built on top of an abandoned railroad line. It runs for miles beside a beautiful mountain river that empties into the lake. The river is on one side of the trail, and breathtaking meadows and mountains run as far as the eye can see on both sides of the trail. Halfway through the ride, the trail passes beside a hamlet with probably less than 50 residents. To A s I write this, I am on vacation in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. If you have never been to CDA (what the locals call it), I can tell you it is beautiful. Coeur d’Alene Lake has been ranked one of the 10 most beautiful lakes in the world. It’s a 125-mile drive around the lake. We have been coming to CDA for over 10 years. Since I love to ride bikes, I particularly like CDA because of the great biking trails. The trail I rode on today is 72 miles long — no motorized vehicles allowed. I can assure you I did not ride all 72 miles. Although I have ridden the trail many times, I always marvel at how beautiful it is; I think God was having a really good day when he created
I realize not everyone is able to take vacations. I haven’t always been able to do so. However, my parents demonstrated to my brother and me when we were young that you can have a wonderful time on a minimal amount of money. My dad was a coal miner and my mother was a stay-at-home mom, so they didn’t have the funds to take us on long, expensive trips. All of our trips were short. It seems like we were always going to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky or to the Smoky Mountains. To reduce the cost, we would drive straight through and stop at roadside parks, where my mom would cook our
meals. We had a great time. Some other memorable vacations we took were camping out at nearby lakes with cousins and going to state parks to spend time with relatives. These were inexpensive vacations I will always cherish. So, if you haven’t had the time or the money to take a vacation this summer, there is still time to treat yourself and your family. Call your loved ones and plan a short, inexpensive vacation. There are lots of options. All of us need a break. You and your family deserve a vacation. Have a great time.
