Notes on the road & biking trip

Someone asked about the meaning of Coeur d'Alene. Here is some info about this delightful region of Idaho, a place to have fun, exercise your limbs and heart, enjoy local art and meditate.

"French fur traders named the tribe Coeur d'Alene--"heart of an awl"--saying they were the finest traders in the world. The tribe's trade involved year-long trips to the Pacific coast as well as to the Great Plains to exchange goods. They called themselves Schee chu'umsch, which, in their native Salish language, means "those who are found here." http://www.anglerguide.com/articles/18c.html
