God said, "shoot with your iPhone"

Driving down interstate 90 in the lush Silver Valley of Northern Idaho a voice spoke to me, saying, "shoot with your iPhone". Having just seen the Blues Brothers, and with the exit for the Cataldo Mission in sight, it could only mean one thing. I was on a Mission from God.

The Mission of the Sacred Heart, was built by Missionaries and members of the Coeur d'Alene tribe between 1850 and 1855. This is the oldest standing building in the state of Idaho, and is listed on the national registry of historic places.

Bear Grass

This cool summer has given way to a beautiful and long lasting wildflower season. The Lupine and Beargrass in the higher and cooler regions of Idaho are in prime shape. Now, in this first week of August, it feels like late june in the high country.
