Manito Park – Spokane, WA

Sunday I went back to spend more time at this large city park in southern Spokane.  I had visited parts of the park (general areas, a large rose garden and a small Japanese garden) but I neglected to visit the Duncan Garden portion and I’m glad I went back to see it.




It was a beautiful day with pleasant temperatures and no smoke!  The glass building you see in the second and third photos above is the Gaiser Conservatory.  Inside that building I found these plants:

A Lollipop plant:



A Burro-tail:


And several varieties of cactus plants, most of which were not labeled:





I have visited lots of city and county parks in and around Spokane in the last three days and, frankly, haven’t done much else.  I did go back to my Airbnb Saturday mid-day to watch the NASCAR Xfinity race from Darlington and came home early Sunday to listen to the NASCAR Cup race from the same track.  Monday I should have no distractions and plan to spend the entire day outdoors.  Tuesday will be a travel day as I head further east to northern Montana.  There will be a large National Recreation Area near there I plan to visit on Wednesday.
