The flowers are blooming and the trails are not too dusty. Now’s a great time to ride!

Mountain biking Riverside State Park

I got away from the computer and the finishing touches on Day Hiking Mount St. Helens for a great mountain bike ride in Riverside State Park Sunday evening. The streaks in this shot are a result of a penstemon brushing against the lens as I jogged next to the rider–a happy accident!

More Spokane River whitewater



The conditions are still pretty perfect for floating the Spokane River right now. Thanks to Pangaea River Rafting and their guests for being such great models!
