358--Idaho: Rainbows on the GPAR ranch
@ CherieSpotting     Jul 11 2006 - 16:25 PST
Cherie writes: Northern Idaho is a place of quiet comfort, a place to get lost in the dreaminess of creamy wheat fields and the aromatic smell of late-harvest hops. Enter into a world of unplugged magic, where double rainbows really exist and children still frolic amongst the haystacks. Welcome to the wild oblivion of the North—to a land where being called a “heifer” is a compliment and the sweetest music is the wind tickling the amber leaves.

Soar with me above the rolling hills and fertile valleys of the GPAR ranch in Pat’s plane. Spy the sun-drenched canola fields and experience the solitude and enchantment of our gorgeous green earth viewed from over a thousand feet off the ground.
