    Video:Day Hike Riverside Park, Spokane Wa

    This is a day hike At Riverside state Park Spokane WA. I was testing out a new Pack the Osprey Atmos 65L and Black diamond Trekking pole's.I was carrying a full Pack for a 3 day trekk including GT hammock,Eno profly, HG UQ, 3 days worth of Mountain house food and three liters of water along with the rest of my gear a comfortable stay.With Everything included the weight was 21.6Lbs. The pack and Poles worked great IMHO.This is a great scenic day hike along Spokane river. With a great spot for a Trail side snack!

    As seen in all the top Hollywood block busters. I think that must be the river Hollywood show in all the movies they make, cuz I think I've seen it a few times in the movies. Very nice, mind you! Love thoughs great big boulders. Thanks for the trip report, TomsBackwoods! Looks like a nice place to hike, canít go wrong with a river like that, thatís for sure!

    Hey Tom,
    I didn't realize you were so close! We should punch out some time to hang out together.

    When I was in PA school I spent a bunck of time on that trail and roaming around that river. Spokane is truly the city of bridges!

    Thanks for sharing the vid and the views. Cool that your wife is willing to share the outdoor time with you. Looks like she's quite the navigator.

    Thanks for taking us along. The area looks amazing and seeing the deer that close is always awesome.

    Yes Spokane has been in a lot of movies, and some are even filmed here for the whole entire movie. A lot of famous actors and actresses have property in or around the area as well. And some movies stars were born and raised here as well. Pretty much any given time of the year a person is bound to run into a few of them.

    That being said, the only thing we have going for us here is the out doors scene, aside from that, the economy, jobs, (were ranked #3 in the nation for worst place to find a job) and people suck.

    Yea I agree for the most part! Unfortunately its even harder to find a decent paying job where I live so the wife and I have to commute for work. She goes to Post falls and I to Spokane. A nice place to visit But I wouldn't want to live there
