Cocolalla, Idaho: August 2012

We had a great time in Cocolalla, Idaho! We stayed at dad's ranch and explored the lake. It's a great little out of the way lake in the Idaho pan handle. There's so much great camping in the pan handle that I think this lake gets overlooked. Which is fine, because it's a nice little out of the way spot.
