Early on, Ali found orchids on a far section of the property. Their numbers change each year and it seems as though they bloom infrequently, but every year we trek to the back of the property for an adventure on the trails. After a stop for a few more mundane flowers we headed off. We found the orchids. They hadn't spiked this year. :-( We continued our walk around the property and were very surprised to find a second, new location where we had not seen orchids before. No spikes, but it doubled the spots on the property where there were plants. Maybe next year...
Today was Gwen's first return to the geocaching trail after her partial ACL tear. We decided to take her for a couple of caches in a gamelands near Union City. The terrain is a little tougher than a flat walking trail but offers a lot of open fields between the woods. She did well. We were really surprised to see a yellow-bellied sapsucker along the trail and Gwen seemed to be fine on the trail.

Okay, Russell Uplands Park is new for me. Ali knew all about the park and has visited it before. I drive by it about 10% of the time on the way to the office and never noticed. I can be dense. Better late than never when it comes to visiting a pleasant park and taking a walk. There were two new geocaches in the park. I was happy we only got one since it gave us another great reason to return in the future for yet another visit.

Friends of Hudson Parks placed a series of geocaches in the city's parks. Their parks are pleasant places to visit so they made a fun afternoon of a day in town.

There are lots of great places to cache in Spokane. Two evenings prior I realized Mirabeau Park was close to my hotel. I was done with my emails and other business early and had a long flight home, so I took a bit of early morning time to find a couple caches in the Park and explore.
