With the Spring weather warming up our family is getting anxious to get out on the trails. Thankfully the Spokane area has plenty of places nearby to get out and enjoy the outdoors - some are Natural Areas, some are Conservation Areas, some are State Parks, or County Parks, etc. In the coming weeks we'll be reviewing 5 or 6 of our favorites so that you can learn about them and then go experience them for yourselves.
This past weekend we took a quick trip to Antoine Peak Conservation Area for a couple hours in the afternoon. The trail is easy enough for anyone, the views along the path are fantastic, and it felt good to be outside even if the breeze was a bit on the chilly side. We also took the time to find 3 of the dozens of geocaches located here, which always serves as extra motivation for the boys to get outside. We'll be posting more about geocaching in the coming weeks as well.
When we went in early April the wildflowers were just starting, and the Arrowleaf Balsamroot were getting ready to come out in force. Now is a great time to get out there.
Once we have finished our blog reviews of our favorite spots we will follow that up with more detailed trip reports in that section of our website. So stay tuned!
