Coeur dAlene Lake: End of Summer

I was out photographing a fine piece of lakefront and view property for Alan Golub when I caught this view of Coeur d’Alene Lake, September 9, 2014. I had walked the roads of one of his lakefront parcels and some. Heading back out to Highway 57 to Harrison, I stopped and I walked out on a ridge overlooking Moscow Bay near the Beauty Bay Recreation Area and caught this last moment of summer.

The End of Summer Around Coeur d’Alene

Taking the photo, seeing and experiencing that marvelous view in that autumn light made me ponder how fortunate we are to live in such a place, free of strife, free of war, wholesome and full of life in all seasons. We have such abundance here, especially of fresh, clean water.

Living and working in these northern counties of Idaho is safe for the most part. It’s a safe place. People say “hi” when they pass you or greet you with a smile; they are warm and friendly. I think it’s because most of the people you meet here are satisfied that life is a good thing. There’s very little hate, very little crime, not a lot of discontentment. Even the poor seem happy.

Yes, there are those who struggle and some who are angry or sad or even depressed; but you don’t experience much of that. Is it because of the natural beauty that surrounds us here?

Could be.
