The Centennial Trail

Approaching the Spokane River from the North

I have lived in Spokane for about 18 years and have never traveled the Centennial Trail, until this week.  I had to wonder why I had never done it before. 

Here is my friend who introduced me to the trail. 
I liked it so much I had to go back again the next day!

The Spokane River Trail follows the contour of the Spokane River.  It begins in the east at the Idaho state line and ends at Nine Mile Falls, Wa.  The length of the Centennial Trail is 37 mile from end to end, and it is completely paved.

 There were lots of flowers....

 Wild roses.



These particular flowers, the white ones, smell heavenly.

Walking the trail is a nice,  peaceful walk.  The people passing by on bikes were friendly and the day was lovely.  There was a lot of sights to see.. mostly nature.

There were birds, a rabbit, and a chipmunk too. I saw
ladybugs, snails, and bumblebees.


Snails come in all colors.

Flowers... blue and yellow.
