Forgot to mention the crazy dust storm on the way to Spokane... it was so thick at times that we could barely see the taillights of the car in front of us. It reached all across Washington and into Idaho. We were going to camp in the woods 'til we saw several wildland firetrucks with lights on and figured we didn't want to become crispy critters so we went into spokane a day earlier than planned. Lucky for us Nick and Sara (and Sara's visiting folks) were happy to have us : )
We hiked Mount Kit Carson, took a walking tour of Spokane and it's parks and the newly renovated fancy Davenport Hotel. My favorite highlight was a donut cart in Riverfront park that made FRESH DONUTS to order, right there, in front of us! Hot and delicious.
OH, another highlight was sleeping with their sweet little kitty May.
Lots of great food and drink, thanks Nick and Sara!
