Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes (Ridaho)
Wallace's big claim to fame is that they had the last working bordello in the US which is now the Oasis Bordello Museum. Our camp site was in a cold canyon that never got any sun.
Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes
One of the premiere paved rail-to-trails, the trail is straight and practically flat for 73 miles through the Silver Valley. The trail was built as a super-fund site. There was so much toxic junk that leaked or dribbled from the trains that they just buried it and paved over it. What we didn't know at the time was that what looked to be pristine meadows and woods just off the trail, was still quite contaminated.
Leaving Wallace we first went through a few old mining towns like Kellogg and Pinehurst, before heading out to some beautiful country.
Eventually we made our way across Chatcolet bridge before finding our campsite on the banks of Lake Coeur d'Alene
