Lake Pend Oreille Cruise, Sandpoint ID

From the air to the water.  It’s time to explore Lake Pend Oreille up close.  We boarded the Shawnodese for a 9 mile loop around Lake Pend Oreille.  Our first mate, Linda, shared some history on how the lake was formed and how the area was originally settled.  The captain made a special trip to an easily seen eagle’s nest where young eagles are nested.  A bit further down we spotted one of the parents.


The two young eagles are in this first picture.  Look closely at this second picture there is a bald eagle in there!

Something cool about a train going by; it never gets old at any age!


All aboard!
