It is a gorgeous almost-spring day today. The sun is shining brightly, warming us through our coats. We decided to take a walk to River’s Edge Park with Murphy the Giant Puppy and the boys. For its size, Columbia Falls boasts a number of nice parks (11, to be exact). They contain playground equipment, picnic tables, etc…the normal park trappings.
River’s Edge Park is special–it is a wide open space of nearly 30 acres and hosts approximately 900 feet of river front. It is home to the Columbia Falls Community Garden, where I spend a whole lot of quality time during the growing season.There is a muskrat pond, two vast fields, and many winding trails throughout our park.It is our favorite place to walk the dog.And to watch the birds.To sit and watch the river flow by.
To throw rocks into the water.
Just another reason to feel lucky to live in the Flathead Valley.
