The plan was to head east and visit a bunch of new parks for the 146 Parks project. That only sort of happened, but a good time was had nonetheless.

The good news is that I did visit the one park that I had heard was best visited in winter, Mount Spokane, which is basically a publicly-operated ski resort northeast of the city of Spokane.

The even better news is that I got some very nice winter / fog photos that I can share here along the way.

I did set foot in a couple of other parks, but I’ve filed those away under “better visited in warmer weather.” I’ve included a few photos as teasers of those parks for now, but they won’t appear on the parks blog until I revisit them and can do a proper hike and visit.
