Sand Point is nestled on the northwest shore of 43-mile-long Lake Pend Oreille, (pronounced Pen-der-ray) at an elevation of 2,070 feet.
It is surrounded by the Selkirk and Cabinet Mountains which are part of the frontal ranges of the Rockies.

During the short summers, folks enjoy the sunny, blue skies at Sand Point's City Beach.

As we leave Sand Point, we can see the sun setting on Lake Pend Oreille. Joe, we need the french fries to get to the next page. I promise we'll give them back as soon as we get there.
