I’ve been away from the wonderful worldwide web for awhile. Hope you all have been good! It has also been quite a long time since I’ve traveled through this part of the country; namely the Idaho panhandle. I really like the little town of Coeur d’Alene, sitting alongside a big beautiful lake.
Cataldo is a historic Jesuit mission, the oldest building in Idaho. It dates from 1850. Obviously it has been restored, and quite nicely! Located not far east of Coeur d’Alene and now a state park, it lies just off the freeway. Nevertheless, I’ve never noticed it before now. I saw the sign and pulled off, just at nightfall. But the park was closed.
I could see the photographic possibilities from the road. The attractive building was lighted up and the timing (blue hour) couldn’t have been better. So I quickly grabbed my tripod and snuck up past the gate. I snatched a few shots and stole away into the night.
