We had decided that we wanted to spend a day or two riding the bike trails up in the Spokane area. The weather looked good and we were looking to stay two nights.
After looking at the possible places to stay in the Spokane area we decided to head for the Riverside State Park campground. But when we got there what we found was not what we expected. There was only one small site left, available for a single night, jammed in among th the other sites. It was not at all what we were expecting from the reviews.
So we got back in the car and made our way north to another campground. But this time it was about 8 p.m. and we were tired. Imagine our disappointment when we pulled up to the second campground and it was closed. Fortunately we had seen in RV park about a mile down the road. We pulled in and they had a space for us. Typically we have always kind of turned up our noses at RV parks, but this was a lifesaver. The host, Lon, was a great guy. Later learned that most of the people were full-timers living there and he ran a very tight ship. This being our first trip with our new kitchen that I had built worked out pretty well because I was able to fine-tune things and even borrow his staple gun.
The next day we went down to Spokane, had a terrific ride on the bike path and enjoyed a fabulous meal at Cole's, a dedicated gluten-free restaurant.
