We decided to head a little further east from Spokane, and check out Post Falls and Coeur D’Alene!  Post Falls has a lovely man made waterfall and a river side park, called Falls Park,  so naturally we had to make a quick stop!  The waterfalls weren’t high like the one in Spokane, but they sure were mighty!  The park was lined with weeping willow trees–which were mine and my cousin’s favorite trees to swing from when we were little kids!  They were not quite green yet, they were a lovely shade of yellow.  So naturally I had to get a photo in between them!

Afterwards we made a quick shopping trip to an amazing antique mall, called My Favorite Things.  If you love antiques and home decor, this place is definitely worth checking out!  Found so many collectibles, along with a gigantic selection of wonderful antique jewelry and accessories!

After visiting Post Falls, we decided to end the day in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho!  We were told that the first thing we should do was the walk along the boardwalk on Lake Coeur d’Alene.  The boardwalk is one of the world’s largest floating boardwalks, and it has stunning views of the lake and the mountains beyond it.  Part of the boardwalk has a short tower bridge, which had unique architectural details and made for some great photos!  Also, I stumbled across an incredible metal sculpture of a dandelion, created by artist David Tonnesen.

I definitely had a great time visiting these peaceful, low-key cities.  It was undeniably a nice break from the insane pace of LA!  (But of course, I still love LA anyway!)
