Matter of Opinion

Falls View Pathway: Don’t miss it

Thanks to a suggestion by my colleague Doug Floyd, I took a 10-minute Vitamin D walk from the S-R to the Falls View Pathway which you can pick up between City Hall and the fenced driveway next door.

It's the best view yet of the amazing Spokane River.

Follow the pathway down the stairs to several different levels. At the first level, you look over the river as it roars over the dam.
You will be standing next to the green lip of water, as shown here in S-R Photographer Brian Plonka's artwork. (By the way, to see more of Brian's amazing river photos and audio, click here.

Have you ever had a dream where you look out a window and water is rising and rising in science-fiction ways?
Or have you ever seen those movies where characters look out and see huge water coming at them? (Evan Almighty has a scene like that. And the film Deep Impact.)

Anyway, that's the experience, folks. Don't miss it.
