Fern Falls is a beautiful spot to visit in North Idaho. We made our way up to this great spot. After a slight delay due to a mechanical issue, we were back on the camping trail. This time we ended up at Fern Falls up the CDA River 37 miles. It’s a short 5 mile drive either by car or ATV to the trailhead then it’s a short walk to the falls. Oh goodness what a treat. A little incline to the falls but a great photo opportunity. Plenty of parking and you can also just wade in the river on the way up to the falls.
We continued our ATV trek up Forest Service Road 513 that turned into Road 440 – a trip that ended up being 27 miles. We took off half a mile from our camp at Teddi Creek and came out at Flat Creek just a mile up the road. The road is very easy for travel – wide enough for either vehicles or atv’s. The views are amazing. Sights of the mountains near Kellogg and possibly the Montana border are clear enough for great photo opportunities.
We were also reminded that field mice can make their way into very tiny spaces. At 4am we heard this noise – I say it’s just the rain… no he says it’s a mouse! All I want to do is hide under my covers. So Mr. Ninja mouse stalker gets up and sees this little deer mouse with a red M&M in his mouth. So he grabs a bowl and is able to trap the little guy – so we put a bottle of Captain Morgan on top for weight – just in case. So no more noise, back to sleep for a couple hours. Then later we released the little guy out in the field with the rest of the M&M’s – so he can be hyped up on chocolate.
