1st Buttercup! North bank of Spokane River, Harvard Rd, Liberty Lake

HAPPY SPRING! Found the first buttercups of the Season on the north bank of the river just west of Harvard Rd out of Liberty Lake on Monday 2/26

. I hadn't know this path existed until someone told me about it. It goes off of Harvard Rd at the boat launch and then travels along the river but ends before you reach Barker Rd. So its not overly long but it does have quiet a bit of up and down. Portions were treacherous with the ice and snow remaining. Short but pretty jaunt.

Centennial Trail upriver dam 2/19/2018

Monday was a super brisk day for a walk but YAY it was sunny! Walked from the parking lot at mile post 16 to mile post 18. This takes you past Upriver dam which was letting alot of water though it, it was really raging. ALways amazes me to see the power of water. The little guy was throwin rocks in the water but the ducks were sure he was going to throw food any minute.

WOW! The best kept secret place, Liberty Lake Loop Trail

I can't believe I had never heard about this wonderful trail before. I started exploring the area last week and went back today to start doin the loop I was limited on time so did from the parking area to the Cedar Grove, about 4 1/2-5 miles round trip from the front parking lot. The trail is glorious, challenging up and down, the sound of the stream ever present as the path runs along it. Well maintained but very wild on all sides. My favorite trail ever! I will be back soon to complete the loop with its 8+ miles in total. Today there were a lot of families and people with 4 legged children enjoying the sunshine.

Liberty Lake Trail 2/7/2018

Took to the trails out of the Liberty Lake park. Had meant to do the "Loop" but decided to go up the hill and ended up doing the horse trails instead. Will be back to do the actual loop soon. The trails I took were steep and very wild. Nice and challenging. The park is beautiful, the picnic and camping facilities look like they are probably super as well. Large sandy beach. Nice play area for human kids. Neat area for people to play with and walk their 4 legged kids as well. Lots of exploring to do. There is a $2 charge to use the area after May, it was free to park and use today.
