The waterfall at the top end of Hog Canyon Lake was flowing in good form on March 20, 2011.  It dries up later in the spring. The lake is on BLM land an the area is great for dayhiking. (Rich Landers)

HIKING — Members of the Northeastern Washington Native Plant Society are leading a nifty native plant walk on Sunday into Hog Canyon Lake area of the BLM Fishtrap Lake management area west of Spokane.

They will explore this lovely shrub-steppe pronounced scabland terrain with mima mounds and rock in part, adjoining a shrubby pine forest around secluded large pond with aspens and short palisades
and a wide variety of plant life and wildlife.

If you're interested in  meeting up with this group at 8:45 a.m. for departure from Spokane on Sunday, contact the leaders for details:
