My Homeland Sandpoint Idaho

My Home is in Sandpoint Idaho. I have been living here for the last 10 years. I love it. Sandpoint is situated at the border of the Lake Pend Oreille a vast body of water in the Northern Idaho Panhandle. It was the home of the Kalispell Indian people until the beginning 1920. Local animals included, moose, mule dear, elk, black bears, bobcats, coyotes, bald eagles, hummingbirds, ospreys, Canadians geese. A true wild place. Our community is very strong with 7365 people living in the town, it is easy to know many of the villagers and get a friendly feeling. 


View of the lake Pend Oreille. We are one hours from the Canadians border. In the summer everyone enjoy the leisure of swimming in this beautiful sitting. 

This picture was taken during the fall. We really have 4 seasons and each one show an extreme contrast. I can't decide which one is my favorite.... 

Winter in Sandpoint. The Third Pier is just a block from my house. My mom likes to take me to this spot, spring, summer, fall and winter. We also have a ski resort called Schweitzer Mountain , are we lucky? 

Sunset at the City beach park. A place where we like to go in the summer. Hope you enjoy my homeland. 


  1. I too was born and raised in Sandpoint. I recently moved away to go to college, and reading this made me miss it so bad. I hope all is going well with you. Reading this is amazing, and your family seems amazing, as are most people from Sandpoint. Don't ever forget where you came from, because Sandpoint is unlike any other place in the world, and the impression it will leave on you will stay with you forever, I promise. Stay strong and stay yourself. You inspire me Alexandra
