Day 5: Sheridan, WY to Coeur D'Alene, ID

Day 5 took us from Sheridan, WY to Coeur D'Alene, Idaho.  Because we knew some great things were waiting for us in Idaho, we got up early (for us) and were on the road by 8 o'clock.  We spent most of the 10 hour drive in Montana, which was possibly the most beautiful state of the entire 3,000 mile journey.  Everywhere you looked was breathtaking scenery.  Sadly, the only picture we captured in the entire state was this: 
When we passed the state Montana state line into Idaho, there may have been a happy dance or two.  Not only were we one state closer to the finish line, but we also gained an hour which meant one extra hour to relax in our state de'jour.

Coeur D'Alene is an adorable little town on a huge lake. 
Our evening and night there was simply lovely.  We started with a little bit of window shopping and exploring the town and quickly discovered a great little lakeside bar where we relaxed and watched the sunset over a icy beverage.

From there we scoped out the dining options and decided on a fabulous wine bar and restaurant called The Wine Cellar.  To say the flank steaks were delicious would be an understatement, so I'll just leave it at this:  if you find yourself hungry here, stop in and tell Cammi that Emily & K sent you. 

After dinner, we ventured back up the main street where we stumbled upon a bar with karaoke which was good for more than a few laughs.
But, the best part of the night by far was going to sleep knowing that tomorrow, this crazy Cannonball run would be over!
