To be fair, I just want to add, it was mid-June when we went last summer. The high lake waters were just beginning to recede and things weren't all that hopping, so to speak, for the summer season. We didn't go back the rest of the summer and obviously haven't been up that way yet this year, so maybe it has changed and it was cleaned up a bit since then. I'm hoping anyway. I know that the construction around it definitely doesn't make it all that easy to get to.

USAFRACER lighten up Francis.................... most people take care of their dogs and cleanup after them and leash them. As far as the dog beach.. it is very hard to get to (i'm not even sure you can right now) and don't always want "wet dog" getting back in car, etc... it is very hard to find parks to walk them so I take them in the forest...you see dogs walking on leash with owner in downtown Sandpoint alot, just no parks for them...

"Lisa"? What happened to "that wild redhead in the Jeep"?

Oh, and congrats on no more sheep...there were stories circulating about your husband. But then you're not from Montana...

I might be up your way this evening. The ADV motorcycle community has this "tag" game, you get a pic of your bike at some recognizable place and post a pic. Next person gets a pic at the same place, then repeats the process at another spot. It's at the Green Owl right now...might have to try for Baldy tonight.

We were up at the lake! I haven't even been in the new Green Owl. What did you think?
Still the wild redhead in the jeep, and you can continue calling me Misty...though it does make me sound kind of....blonde.

LOL. I got my pic at the Green Owl, but they were closed. I do like their new advertising:




I was looking for a redhead, a Jeep or "Spinner", didn't see either. It looks like they extended the tarmac quite a ways. I went out by way of Peninsula Road, back down Eastside Cutoff. I always liked Eastside, it's a pretty ride. Really should have aired the tires down a bit...I had them aired up from running slab from Wallace last weekend. Lots of air pressure in bike tires makes loose gravel a bit more interesting than necessary.

We're farther north of Eastside Cutoff. "Spinner" (Guinness) has been slacking lately...he's getting old.
We were up at Cavanaugh Bay this evening. Someone had something bad happen, they brought in a Lifeflight helicopter to the airstrip and took someone out. Other than that it was a lovely evening, it's amazing how nice that place is now.

Cavanaughs is pretty nice. Wifey and I stopped in last year on our anni while on a ride around Priest Lake. 'twas a great day, still warm enough to eat out on the patio. They were closed for quite some time though, back early last year or late the year before. Time's sort of a blur.

There used to be a resturant in "downtown" Coulin, right on the lake by the boat ramps. They were also closed....do you happen to know if they opened back up.

No, it's not open and though they do plan to open it again eventually, it won't be till the economy gets better. The same guy who owns the marina next door owns the oldrestaurant building.

The old Cavanaugh's closed when the owners lost possession a few years ago. Then one of the managers from Hill's and his wife bought it and redid the place. They have the most beautiful condos for rent there and they just bought the old cabins across the parking lot.

There are lots of areas to walk dogs on a leash, and they even provide doggie doo bags, cans to dumps the bags in, and stations with water bowls. I am not sure what you expect in the way of being dog friendly. Allowing countless dogs to run loose all over the place wouldn't be fair to anyone.

That's true--and several restaurants allow well-behaved dogs on their patio. They'll even bring water bowls for the pooch. But if a dog owner is looking for a dog park per se, there are not many options. Dog parks aren't just for allowing the dog to run loose, but also for socializing with other dogs off leash.
