Coeur d'Alene Skate park

Went walking along the Centennial Trail along the Spokane River and into Downtown Coeur d'Alene today. Came back through the park and to the wonderful Skatepark at the edge of the park. Although a chilly windy spring day there were still quite a few folks with skateboards and scooters enjoying the day. Jordan who works at a local board shop did some great tricks as did another, with a cast on his arm. One of the guys had his puppy Harley, who nicely posed for the camera.

A walk through Lincoln Park in Spring & Millie the wonder Dog

Took a walk through Lincoln Park on the South Hill today. If you have never been you should go and enjoy the wild trails as well as a manicured park down below. There is a pond and then some other areas with pond type areas. It was in one of these areas that I came upon Millie and her mother. Millie was joyously running into the water at break-neck speed, rolling around and swimming. What fun! The wild flowers are blooming profusely. Even saw a big Tom turkey with his feathers all puffed out. AHH, SPRING!

Easter in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

I spent a glorious hour in Coeur d'Alene walking through town and along the beach. The path system there is great, you can go around Tubbs Hill or head northwest along the river for quite a few miles. The activity was just mind boggling, all sorts of egg hunts for the kids, a special photo op for special need kids was happening in the center of town. People were out in droves along the city beach, so many people had their 4 footed babies along. People had their boats out, the Seaplanes were flying and the Mish An Nock, big sight seeing boat, was out. Just a wonderful day for all.

Sunday walk through dowtown Spokane & Riverfront Park

So many people out today and many had their 4 legged babies out with them as well. A nice gentleman, Jerome, had a full drum set he was playing and a sign telling about a U-tube video they have about Spokane street musicians. Another busker was playing a guitar. The falls were getting everyone wet with its spray as the gates were full open. The seagulls and geese were fighting over bread. A little sunshine goes a long way! Ooggie the Great Dan and Duke the Shepherd had a nice greeting for each other and a couple of gorgeous Greyhound girls were walking with their people who are part of the local Greyhound rescue group. Spring has finally sprung, YAY! I made my first trip across the bridge in the University district today and the Garbage Goat in Riverfront Park is still enchanting kids as it did when I was little.

The trail between the Fish Lake trailhead and the Cheney-Spangle trailhead is flooded in quite a few areas. There are some large deep areas of flooding that is up to you ankles. Still beautiful, fresh and new but you are going to get your feet wet.

Iller Creek Conservation, Steven's Creek & mini Brahma calf

Up, up, up. The trail off of this trail head, off Stevens Creek Road off the Palouse Hwy is an upward march until you reach the top. Grand views, forest flowers, birds chirping and towering tree's are all around. I didn't see any critters, except "NIKE" the dog hiking with her person and some crows circling but saw poop and hoof prints so know they's been there. I stopped on the way home and took some pictures of the cutest, tiniest baby mini Brahma bull.
