Gonzaga & Manito Conservatory Christmas

Took a walk around Gonzaga University yesterday and was  met with pretty Christmas lights. I was also pleased to meet Chloe, the Shih tzu and her mom who were on campus. Inishowen, an Irish Water Spaniel, and his parents were walkin the trail near Gonzaga. He was having a wonderful time with his ball in the snow. A beautiful time of the year for enjoying the sights and sounds on the trails and parks in our area.
Took a walk through Manito's Gaiser Conservatory on Wednesday to look at all the pretty holiday lights. It never fails to thrill!
Happy Holidays to all!

Christmas in downtown Spokane

Spokane has always been really good at decking herself out for the holidays. I went walkin through town yesterday to once again enjoy the window displays that have come out of storage, the lights, the people. Happy holidays to all!

Lake Coeur d'alene Coeur d'alene Parkway December

The excitement along the Coeur d'alene Parkway Trail at the east end of the lake is palpable! The eagles are in and feasting on the trout as they spawn. I had never walked this end of the lake and the trail system is wonderful! A lot of parking, paved trails and beach access for walking right along the water. There were so many people, many with their 4 footed kids, walking, running, standing with their long zoom lenses to get a shot of the feathered celebrities. When we were there there were a few here and there but not the large numbers I had heard spoken about.  There were fish heads everywhere, fish floating and on the beach from the buffet that the eagles had been enjoying.

Swans, swans and more swans!

From Cheney Wetlands, to Turnbull to the Slavin Conservation area all of our open water places have been overrun by swans. There were around 40 in the pond behind the Cheney Wetlands, 20 in the pond at Slavin and then 20-30 spread out in the waters in the Turnbull area.
