City View in Spokane . . .

Today felt like one of those end-of-summer days. Just 74 degrees, yet we could feel a twist of cold when the wind blew. We drove out along City View to discover a hiking trail that cuts straight down the hill.

A kindly mountain biker said we could hike along the fairly ambitious trail for many miles. We took the shorter, simpler loop, meandered under pine trees, spotted two magpies, and were grateful for walking sticks on the narrow, winding, slippery trail.

Tonight I can hear Canada geese honking their way north. Winter is coming.
