I was in Spokane, WA. There was not much going on in Phoenix and
the Washington guy was on vacation so I was sent to fill in. My
was at night and I had half a day to explore Spokane. Well they
have a big river up there that rips right down the middle of
town. These pictures are of the Spokane River. I am from
the desert. When we see this much water at one time it is called
a flood. So yes I was amazed at all the water in the river.
This is upper falls on the Spokane River. In the top picture the
cream building in the middle of the frame is the upper falls power
plant. The red brick building is the electric sub station.
Just around the bend is the lower falls and the lower falls power
the neat things in Riverfront Part is the Big Red Wagon. I have
idea why it is here. It is big enough to hold a ladder between the back
wheels and the front handle is a slide. There were some kids
playing on it for a while, you might be able to just make out a girl in
a pink sweater sliding down the handle.
those of you tired of seeing my little white van here is Tom's larger
white truck. The arched building behind us is the gym at Gonzaga
University in Spokane, WA. The building is named after somebody
famous or who gave a lot of money but I forgot who that was. Just
visible on the right is the new athletic center, a full blown super
basket ball arena. The old gym is about the size of a good sized
high school gym. There aren't even seats behind the basket just
padded walls about 6 feet away. The new arena will seat something
like 14,000 people and have state of the art concession stands.
After this game I drove the truck back to Seattle.
