and Todd visit northern Idaho where they experience being part of a
ranch family. They also explore various wildlife refuges in the area
to see what wildlife species they can find.
A Note From Terri and Todd....
This is the trip that almost didn't happen.
had originally planned to film 2-3 episodes on Idaho, but instead
filmed one episode in about 3 days and spent the remainder of the time
in Montana. It seemed like obstacles kept getting our the way of our plans.
Todds dad passed away about two weeks before we were schedule to leave on this trip. After his death, we were going to cancel the trip. It seemed burdensome to deal with the obstacles it kept presenting.
But honestly, a trip is what we needed at that point in the mourning process, so we went. We knew that is what he would have wanted.
Darrel loved adventures. Even when Todd was driving.
With all that happened, The focus changed from being about promoting the northern Idaho area to being more about promoting it's wildlife and things to do, but in the end, it was fun and a positive experience and I am glad it worked out the way it did.
We enjoyed the time we spent with the folks from Western Pleasure and also enjoyed making new friends at Cedar Springs B & B. We were able to cover a lot of ground, fill our hearts with fun memories and felt Todd's dad smiling down upon us.
The view from our deck at Cedar Springs offered us a great view, and at night we could hear the wolves howl. It was just what we needed.
We personally want to thank Janice, Ellen, and Linda! It wouldn't have happened without you! :)
