3 miles of hiking • 250' elevation gain •

Enroute to a 2 week deployment in Spokane. My intention was to go to Potholes Coulee, but the map brought me to Potholes State Park. This is mostly an anglers boat ramp with very little hiking so after a frustrating lakeside wander, I headed to nearby Blythe Lake which was awesome! Followed a deer trail to a cool rim. Fun scrambly ridgewalk. Almost stepped on a rattler. Very dramatic.
