Spokane 2014 Nine Mile Dam 1

 

Spokane 2014 Nine Mile Dam 2

It was great to be able to get shots of the dam with the water over flowing the top of the dam on my last visit.  There is only a certain time of year you get this view.

 

 

This tree is along the entry road to our subdivision. It is always quite distinctive when it has no leaves, but it really stood out today in the sun and with the fence decorated for Christmas.  And as should be abundantly clear from this picture we will not be having a white Christmas.

 

As we get ready for our annual trip to visit the family back in Spokane it reminded me of this previous trip.  We did a day trip up to the Boundary Dam and Gardner Caves.  Along the way we stopped at this little picnic area and found a nice little scenic spot.  It really is unassuming and unexpected as it looks like a little pull over with some picnic tables by a creek.

But if you hike a little ways back into the woods up the creek you find this…

This is about a half mile up the creek from the parking area.  This is just the lower falls.  If you go another half mile or so up the creek along a trail you come to a really cool waterfall.

I think this is a cool view with the large trees down above the fall and the large flat rocky below the falls.

There is some nice scenery and wild flowers, too.
