March Hike at Springer Lake, New Mexico

Hike Near Naches March 11th, 2017

The trails were too snowed in and I didn't have my snowshoes or micro spikes so I climbed up a rather steep southern exposed hill side. I found an elk jaw that is now in my collection.

Example of How Much Water Spokane Has Gotten.

So...we have lived here since 1983 and have never seen this much water. In the second image, in front of the two pine trees there has been a smallish pond in 2-3 years. Now look at it! Wow.

March 5th Morning Hike to My Secret/Favorite Spot!!!

It was wet and a little cold but I loved being out in it. In the one picture you can see the beaver lodge.

Bird-watching Alone in the Cold Fog

I drove out early Friday morning to Folsom Farm near the Hog/Fishtrap Lake complex to see what I could see. Luckily the blind I sat in kept me out of the wind from the south. The main entertainment was a pair of Pied Billed Grebes who would occasionally call and once performed their mating display. I also say many yellow-headed blackbirds, a widely spread out number of coots, a pair of mallards and heard the call of a flicker.

Hike Along Palouse Falls and Into Kahlotus Train Tunnel

This was from a couple of weekends ago. It was rainy, muddy and foggy in places but the Falls were stupendous!

4 Miles Along Rimrock

Yesterday morning's hike along Rimrock Drive (now part of Palisades Park) overlooking the city of Spokane before it got slushy.
