The trails wind through canyons and grassy ridges, offering amazing views of the Saltese Flats, Liberty Lake and Mount Spokane.
A special place
I’ve considered Spokane Valley my home for several years, never mind that I always had to return to Canada. Never mind that I had to wait for Our American to pop the question.
During our first year together, he led me toward Mirabeau Springs and Centennial Trail as a place to walk Shep.
I took this picture of the falls on our first time there:
It’s always been one of my favourite places for family walks and we’re continuing that with Bella.
It’s also where we’re planning to get married. Soon. The falls won’t be turned on in time; nonetheless, it’s a pretty place with many wonderful memories of Shep … and many more to be created with Bella.
Spokane River is higher and faster than it should be in February, but we’re having a freakishly mild winter. As in no winter at all.
I even wondered if we have to save the alien from drowning.
It’s a busy place. Centennial Trail is loved by walkers, runners and cyclists.
And Maremma sheepdogs.
Of course, the best part of a long photowalk is the end.
At the Mirabeau parking lot, there’s a sweet little lagoon.
A great place for a wee little girl, one month shy of her first birthday, to take a breather and cool her feet.
