Almost everyplace I stay now offers a "free" hotel breakfast. They vary from location to location and are not all created equal. The breakfasts included at the Oxford Suites are way above the other offerings. The super bowl of strawberries below was a great part of breakfast this morning.
I made another attempt at visiting Mount Spokane this evening. It was a less spirited effort than the evening before since I was tired after a week on site. I had a back-up plan this evening to visit the McKenzie Conservation Area if I didn't reach the park. I stopped my trip to Mount Spokane and made it to McKenzie in plenty of time to enjoy a long, peaceful walk on the trails.
