 I'm so sorry it's been a while sence I posted a new adventure. One of our dogs needs to have eye medicine every six hours so time to get out on the trails has been really limited.I will get back to it as soon as I am able. Thought I'd post the picture of a Yellow Headed Blackbird that I took recently and appears in the Spokesman Review newspapers Outdoors section today, Thursday 7/7/2022. Hope you're having a wonderful start to the summer out exploring new places and discovering new things.

Riverfront Park in Spring

 Every season in the crown jewel of our park system is beautiful in its own way. Walking on the Centennial Trail past the Red Wagon, Rotary Fountain and seeing the Pavilion and Clock Tower over your shoulder reminds you how lucky you are to live in an area blessed with the natural beauty of the river and the carefully crafted man made attractions. We waited for it, and it finally came, HAPPY SPRING!

Deep Creek early Spring

 Hiking the stream bed of Deep Creek is one of the most challenging short hikes you'll ever take. The stream bed is mostly dry but there are ponds to go around in places. You'll find boulders, big rocks, places where the floor is all of a sudden 4 feet below you and you'll have to slide down some logs from a big rock to get there. Native flowers and vegetation decorate up the sheer rock walls and crevices. Parking on the Deep Creek overlook parking lot I walk down to the stream bed and make my way toward the river, traveling north-east. At the end of the stream bed you come to a bridge over where Deep Creek meets the Spokane River. The Centennial trail uses the bridge and then continues north. I go over the bridge, up the Centennial Trail, traveling south, and then turn right at the top of the hill onto the road that takes you back to the parking lot. The roads here are actual roads so easy going, except for the up part. From the road back you can go to the overlook and see how deep down you really were.
