|Afternoon sun lighting up the Spokane River along the Centennial Trail.|
|The forested sections of trail were especially nice because it was 87 degrees at 5:30pm.|
This time we were in Spokane for just two nights, staying at the Spokane KOA, and discovered its proximity to a gorgeous section of the Spokane Centennial Trail (SCT). The SCT is a paved trail that begins at the Idaho Washington border and runs along the Spokane River for 39 miles in Washington. It's open to foot and bike traffic.
|Golden grasses along the trail.|
The section we rode passed through pine forests, golden grasses, always in view of the clear, clean river, with occasional paths into the trees...it was a beautiful, serene experience.
|At rides end, nearing the campground.|
Once again we had a brief meet up with Yvonne and family, watching the Working Spliffs play at Pig Out in the Park...a free music and food extravaganza at Riverfront Park. Thanks, Yvonne, for the fresh produce!
Today we are off to Boardman, OR, right on the banks of the Columbia River, for a couple of nights. It should be hot and a little crazy there for the holiday weekend, but it will be great to be on the river!
