HIKING -- This is prime time to visit Palouse Falls State Park, where the water is rushing and the landscape is starting to get green. But don't be content to view the falls just from the parking lot overlook.
Steve and Karen Heaps of Spokane had the right idea this weekend to hike to the cascade-like upper falls above the main 185-foot tall falls. Just head upstream from the parking area, down to the railroad tracks for a short way and cut down on the trail to the upper falls.
Note: The railroad is active.
