Spokane, Washington

 We have been at the Wild Rose RV Park in Colbert, Wa for the last 3 days and have enjoyed every minute. We are here with our good friends, Al, Pat, John and Patsy. This is a wonderful park in that the management, staff and other guests made us feel right at home the moment we arrived. The park itself, is very attractive with lush green grass, beautiful flowers, pretty shrubbery and trees. There's a wheat field adjacent to the park that is ready for harvest, that is very picturesque as well. BUT........the big attraction of this park is their vegetable garden. The garden is for the guests to enjoy, which we have taken advantage of. Our last two dinners have come from the garden and will again tonight. There is just something about fresh vegetables that is so delicious. I would highly recommend this park to anyone traveling in this area, and for $27/night, it is a true bargain.  Colbert is about 10 miles north of Spokane.

We did sneak in a trip to an Indian Casino named Chewelah Casino about 30 miles north, but regret to report there were no winners in our group. We also did a tour of what is known as Green Bluff Orchards, which is an area where over 50 small locally owned orchards  are located on a scenic loop, that sell a variety of fruits and vegetables when they are in season. Somehow, we managed to get lost and missed a large part of the loop. But, all was not lost, as we did get a trip in to Camping World in Spokane for some much needed supplies.

Our journey continues tomorrow (Wednesday) with Al, Pat, Crickett and yours truly heading for SunDesert RV Park in Othello, Wa. where we will stay for 6 days and hit the road to Seattle after Labor Day. John and Patsy are heading on to Oregon. We hope to catch up with them again somewhere near Las Vegas.
