Last weekend was such fun!
My sweetheart and I finally had time to try hiking trails on the Mountain Spokane. This guide is rated difficult simply because of its elevation variation and total distance of 13.3 miles, elevation is about 6,000 feet.
We were absolutely ready, wore proper shoes, had additional bottles of water. The weather was absolutely suitable for hiking, not too hot. There are a lot of trails there, nice trails, some streams to cross.
Doesn't that formation remind you some sort of SY-FY fantastic creature, bug, getting out of the ground to drink some water? It does to me, lol....
Now look here,
After 3 hours of constant climbing up the hill we finally reached the point on the mountain where it was a little bit of opening and I could take a couple of pictures. Remember, elevation is about 6,000 feet. Beautiful!
Do you see those mountains in the snow on the horizon? Welcome to Canada!
We made that day total 12 miles in 5 hours. We came back home happy and satisfied (no snakes or cougars turned us around and we completed that trail), but tired and mostly feeling that Mountain Spokane conquered us. We will be back, there are still a lot of interesting and picturesque trails left to be challenged.
Since Jim and I had fun on Saturday, we decided to take our kids out to the city for the whole Sunday. It was a Dinosaurs Exhibition at the Convention Center.
There were so many interesting facts that I haven't heard before. For instance, do you know what dinosaur has the longest name? I didn't, but even if I knew I would never remember it. It is MICROPACHYCEPHALOSAURUS.
Or, according to brain-to-body size ratio, the dumbest dinosaur was Stegosaurus, and Troodon was the most intelligent.
This is Troodon:
Nataly's favorite dinosaur is T Rex
There were a lot of activities for kids and Nataly was excited and happy!
Have a great week,
