More from Spokane…
During most of our recent visit to Spokane there was a heavy fog obscuring the landscape, shortening your sight-lines and making everything a little mysterious. Since Spokane in the winter is brown (the grass usually goes dormant and it seems everything is buff colored), dirty (snow and ice means lots of sanding the roadways…which leaves everything with a nice coat of grit) and just plain ugly (look I was born there and have logged almost 25 yrs there off and on in my lifetime, I’ve earned the right to call it ugly), I welcomed the effects of the fog. When the fog it finally lifted we were along the river and got to enjoy a bit of blue sky right before sunset. That’s part of the Spokane River with Riverfront Park (buildings left over from the 1974 World’s Fair) and a bit of downtown in the distance. These orange berries were glowing in the fading afternoon light. Sometimes I get all sweet on my hometown. This would be one of those times.
