Today and some Pictures to share with you!!

This is a first. I'm actually going to share some pictures with you about our day TODAY and post this TODAY. I believe it is a first. Usually I have all these good intentions and either post them weeks or months later or never get around to posting them at all.

I brought my laptop in the car with me today so I was able to upload my pics as I took them and get some of them watermarked. Now, I just need to upload them for this post! I thought I'd share with you some of the best from today.

We left first thing this morning and drove along a scenic drive called the "Sekirk Loop" I think it is. We stopped at a place called Kootenai Falls. Mom had scouted the place out in one of her books so off we went! (she has good taste in where we go and what we see!!) We also went into Canada into a town called Creston.

First, some pictures from Kootenai Falls which also included a swinging suspension bridge. did I mention I'm afraid of heights? I wasn't sure I could make it across the bridge, but I did.

The picture at the top was what it looked like looking from one side to the other. Keep in mind, if people are walking on it (limit of 5 people at a time) the bridge would sway back and forth side to side. (eek!)

This picture shows what the bridge looked like from the side. We had to hike quite a ways to get to it. Isn't it beautiful? (OK, scarey, but beautiful)

Here is a view up the river from one side.

Well crappola! It seems the internet and blogger isn't cooperating with me, wouldn't cha know. I had about 16 more pictures I planned to post on here tonight but I can't get any more to upload!!! I don't know what blogger's deal is.

Normally, I upload them to drop shots and then cut and paste the html code here, which is MUCH MUCH faster than uploading them through blogger. However, for some reason, on this laptop, which is my work computer, I can't get to my drop shots account. So....I am left with no way to post my pictures on here for the time being. I'll try again tomorrow through blogger (which is painfully slow) and hopefully post more of the pictures.

I have to say, this is one of the things that frustrates me about blogging - stuff not working correctly. GRRRR - I hate spinning my wheels.

Well, enjoy these few pictures. More later.

beautiful pictures. and Im not so sure I would have wanted to cross it either. I can handle the bridge, but that just seemed awful far across

Can't wait to see more photos!

Crazy!! I am terrified of heights so wouldn't be able to go on that bridge. Those are great photos though, I can't wait to see more. :)
