Aw, c'mon, Coop, my geriatric Appaloosa is now what is known as a "pasture ornament", and I'm sure we could find one for the Blog Cabin (although I doubt if the winner would be interested in caring for a retired horse, so probably not a good idea!). Anyway, the state insect of Idaho is the monarch butterfly, and there are all sorts of interesting creations based on this little lepidopteran.

These silly things used to be popular years ago but I couldn't find a current source:

So how about a few of these fluttering about the Blog Cabin entrance:

Maybe the Blog Cabin crew would like to get crafty and make one of these for the front door:

Also, why not go all out and welcome the winner to their new cabin with these:

And once the effects of the wine hit, the winner would be greeted by this:

Okay, okay, maybe that's a little too much monarch madness, but I'm thinking monarch butterflies could easily become the pink flamingoes of Idaho!

Oooh, that Limoncello cake with huckleberry sorbet on the TripAdvisor site is calling my name (it's lunchtime here). Dockside Restaurant will definitely be a destination should I find myself in Couer d"Alene!

I hate to be nitpicky, Virginia, but Rocky Mountain States was not one of the multiple choice options for location preference. No matter, I love that area -- so beautiful, and I adore cold dry weather!

Great job, Addy243! I still don't get the significance of the stones, unless the lake near the Idaho blog cabin has a stony beach?

Oh my, totally off the radar! Did anyone guess Idaho? What a lovely setting -- I can't wait to see the progress on this one!

Check out the blueberries photo caption from Wikipedia about Michigan agriculture:

Cherries, blueberries, navy beans -- too bad Virginia or Laurie didn't give us an image of petunias and cucumbers, which could have clinched it for Michigan. It's still my guess, though!

It looks like either way Michigan comes out as the cherry/blueberry on top, since it is the leading producer of cherries and blueberries!

Here is an image of blueberry sauce:

They look very similar to the sauce in Laurie's image. I'm pretty certain those are blueberries.
