Cliff Park

We live in the middle of some great parks. I usually pass through Cannon Hill and Manito on my way to work. When I'm just walking around, these are a usual destination.

I hardly ever go down to Cliff. Walking around doing errands yesterday, I visited Cliff Park. Beautiful on a warm December day.

Somewhere, I read that Cliff is the highest point in Spokane. New stairs make access to this height very easy.

The view up there was probably pretty amazing a century ago before trees grew up and around it. It looks like there are observation telescope mountings remaining along the rock wall on top.

The trees around it focus your view more on the sky above. And on top of the cliff, you feel a little closer to it.
