|Spokane is a large city, with skyscrapers and a beautiful downtown area. The Spokane River runs through it, Spokane Falls is inside the Riverfront Park. The Park has a carousel, trams and a skyride, lots of bridges and pathways, an IMAX theater, and restaurants. We stayed just outside the city, near Cheney and Medical Lake, which was named for its high levels of various salts, which the Indians used for healing. White settlers also used the lake for salt. Now it has some great softball fields and a bicycle path. This is as far north as we plan to get; our next stop is Joseph, Oregon, 200 miles south.
