We went into the town of Sandpoint and found a brewery on Google maps. MickDuffs had some great seasonal beers and wonderful hot wings. We wandered... Continue Reading →

We got to Creston, a town full of orchards and two wineries, and saw Columbia Brewery. We had lunch an hour or so earlier and... Continue Reading →
