At dawn we pushed on toward Idaho and the glory of Coeur d'Alene Lake, still astonished at the sights revealed at every curve and mountain pass. We'd been through all these places before, but never been struck so strongly by their natural beauty. PineandLakes.com Illustration

That maiden year the first big snowfall started on Thanksgiving afternoon. As fallen autumn leaves were laid to rest beneath a shroud of white, we belatedly came to realize how ill-prepared we were. We lived a couple hundred feet into the woods off a sand road; a road, as luck would have it, that was not high on our township's list of plowing priorities. PineandLakes.com Illustration

As things turned out, we didn't actually accomplish much building that first year, only managing to assemble one wren house and a robin platform. By the time we got the houses up, most of the returning wrens and robins had already made nesting arrangements. But later in the summer a pair of robins put the platform to good use, and that made both of us happy. PineandLakes.com Illustration
