Dock side at Heyburn State Park
Not a boat to be found. Preseason and still a bit cold for most visiting tourists, Heyburn State Park was left uninhabited and open for exploration. Lost in time, feeling like I was the only person on the planet, totally absorbed photographing the old school wooden docks floating in Chatcolet Bay. Just me and my dog, how much better could it get.
Heyburn State Park is the oldest park in the Pacific Northwest, Established in 1908 sitting on 5500 acres of land and 2300 acres of water. Three mountain lakes are incorporated into the park; Chatcolet, Benewah, and Hidden Lakes. with the St. Joe River along the eastern edge of the park.
This is a very tranquil place, a throw back to the classic parks of the 40s and 50s. A step back to a simpler time.
