Miscellaneous Pictures and Stuff

Russ, Dani, and Cameron visited us in Spokane this past weekend. We had a really nice visit with them...went out to dinner at The Spaghetti Factory Saturday night and then to the Longhorn Barbecue for breakfast Sunday morning.

Because we'd arrived at The Spaghetti Factory about an hour before they opened, we took a walk:

Just north of The Spaghetti Factory are elevated train tracks. This mural was painted on the wall of the underpass...this is just a portion of the entire mural, which was painted on both sides of the road.

The above two pictures are of the Spokesman-Review building. All along the east side of the building are busts of different people important to Spokane history. Directly above is a closeup of one such bust.

This is the Spokane Daily Chronicle Building. The Spokane Daily Chronicle was the afternoon newspaper in Spokane up until 1982.

This is a view of downtown Spokane from Rimrock road, above where we live.

Above is either a Cooper's Hawk or a Sharp-shinned Hawk. They both look very similar, with the Cooper's Hawk being slightly larger with a rounded tail, whereas the Sharp-shinned Hawk has a square tail. We didn't get a close enough look at it to determine exactly which hawk it is. It landed on the bird bath of a neighbor across the street and then hopped down to the ground before taking off. The hummingbird in the top picture sat on the feeder like a statue until the hawk was gone!
