Just appreciate in my hometown, a grand river cuts through the heart of Spokane, the Spokane River.
Before moving to Spokane, Washington, I lived on a river in southwest FL. Instead of steelhead, suckerfish, and trout, we had water moccasins, lizards, and alligators. There are even crocodiles in some of the swamps in my hometown now, however they hadn’t migrated that far north until recently. As different as it may seem, we didn’t fear swimming in the river when we were growing up. Every one of us consistently swam in groups and stayed close to the shore. Most alligators are more afraid of humans than humans are of them. The depressing fact is that it was the rampant pollution in this state over the past few decades that made our elegant river unsafe to swim in for any extended stage of time. The runoff from chemicals used in agriculture and mining are having dire repercussions of the natural environment here. Moving to Spokane was a literal breath of fresh air—so much that I don’t ever want to leave! The crisp mountain air is indescribable if you’ve never experienced it before. Just appreciate in my hometown, a grand river cuts through the heart of Spokane, the Spokane River. Some winters the weather gets so chilly that portions of the Spokane River freeze near the Spokane Falls at the Monroe Street Bridge and the Upper Spokane Falls at the Post Street Bridge. If it’s drawback 20 degrees outside, you’re particularly going to assume it as much as you see it in the frozen scenery around you. I appreciate to bundle up at condo with the heat on at full blast, savoring my indoor oasis in the Washington Winter time blast.
