The Spokane area has beautiful hiking trails, and some natural areas are hidden in the heart of the city. Yesterday afternoon, I hiked a trail along the Spokane River, starting near TJ Meenach Bridge. Natural springs flow from the hillside and a combination of native and naturalized plants are in flow bloom.
The scenery is beautiful, but you might consider hiking this trail with a friend.
The water level is high.
The trail follows the river for several miles.
White roses growing wild near the trail.
The roots of a tree are exposed by flowing water.
Wild flowers (weeds?)
The trees lean away from the hillside.
