Winter ponies

 Went and got hay this morning and came across these 2 ponies in their winter fuzzys. The old tractor caught my eye with the frozen scene behind.

Little Spokane Conservation area on a frosty morning

 Headed up north today to walk the Indian Painted Rocks and Knothead trails. It was very cold and frosty but beautiful. The little Spokane was frozen in spots but still bubbling along in others. A deer blinked back at me from the sunshine and a pack of about 3 Coyote's ran through the field beside the river. The view from on top is always breathtaking.

The Littlest Salvation Army bell ringer

 Went walkin on the south hill in the Perry District today. 1st off I had stopped off at the Fred Meyer's store on Frey and much to my delight came upon the littlest Salvation Army bell ringer. He and his family are manning the kettle collecting funds for the less fortunate. I ran into BamBam the French Bulldog and he let me take his picture. Santa's helper, the USPS,  Postal Service worker was decked out in his Christmas hat.The businesses on Perry Street are worth the trip. The area is charming.

Centennial Trail Maringo trailhead 12 2020

 Went walkin on the Centennial Trail from the Maringo trailhead. There were quite a few folks running and walking the trail. A big puppy named Scout was getting to try his legs out and lovin every minute of it. Some Mallard ducks and Canadian Geese were about the only wildlife around.A huge stuffed bear had been left at the stairs used by people putting boats into the water. Folks are still attaching their "Love locks" into the fence on the Denny Ashlock bridge that carries the trail across the river.

A frosty morning in Spokane Riverfront Park

 Spokane's Riverfront Park is beautiful in any season. The river draws people to it. The Centennial trail runs along her banks from one end to the other and every view is better than the last. I spent a frosty December morning walking the trail and being in awe of the beauty every minute I spent.  I also include a really beautiful "Black Lives Matter" mural that is on a building downtown. The Gonzaga Christmas tree you see is one of the many themed charity decorated trees that are scattered throughout the park.

Stevens Creek Trail in the Dishman Natural Area

 WOW and WOW! I had hoped to see some low clouds and fog hanging over the valley below the Stevens Creek Trail, near Valley Ford, Washington. I was not disappointed. Breathtaking is the only way to describe the early morning trip to what feels like the top of the world.
