On Sunday afternoon, we went for a hike, and I spotted this guy munching away under a small tree. I think I was about 5 feet away when I got this shot. This was a real treat for all of us. We also discovered a fantastic trail heading up deep creek with a ton of photo ops, but my camera batteries were dead, so we'll have to go back another time. This is all part of Riverfront State Park. The slogan- Spokane near nature, near perfect -works for me. For all I complain about missing Seattle, I do enjoy hiking around Spokane.
