Whilst on vacation in Coeur D'Alene, the Bag Lady and her traveling companions took a little side trip one day and toured the area. They stopped first at an old Mission that has been restored. It was in a beautiful setting on a hill, and has been well-restored, with informative signs everywhere. Unfortunately for the Bag Lady's party, they arrived just as a group of university students was settling in for mass, so there was no chance to wander through the church and see the artifacts inside.
The Bag Lady did, however, hold her camera above the heads of the people going into the church and managed to snap this picture of the interior.
She also toured the parish house.
The priests had their own private altar for early mass in the parish house.
After an enjoyable hour touring the grounds of the Mission, the Bag Lady's party piled back into their vehicles and continued on their way south. They arrived in Wallace, Idaho just in time for a parade
After the parade, they wandered the streets of this picturesque little town, stopping here and there
