Far on the other side of Washington state from Seattle lays Spokane, and I had an hour or so Sunday to take some quick photos while I was passing through. Here we go...

1) Starting my jaunt

2) Spokane County Courthouse across the river


4) Spokane's shopping district - I am personally impressed by this city's ability to retain large department stores downtown when much larger cities cannot.

5) Art Deco: City Hall / Fox Theatre

6) Downtown Riverfront Park

7) Opera House & convention center

8) Massive expansion of their convention facilities along with a new large convention center hotel is eating up what was a huge parking lot. Good job.

9) Random downtown

10) This old hotel is being converted into apartments, a win for downtown

10) Speaking of hotels, the grande dame of old Spokane, the Davenport. First hotel in the US to be air conditioned I found out recently. The more you know...

10) I digress...a bit more random downtown

They sure knew how to mask a parking garage back in the day (!)

This was the hometown of a certain old crooner...

Glad someone is renovating this looker

I see so much potential in this city. That's all for now though...

You know, Spokane has a bad reputation in the Seattle area but these are excellent photos. I would love to visit the city sometime rather than just driving through.

Great looking view of an under looked city. I love Eastern Washington. Way to go Spokane!
