Running the River

The Clearwater Snake River Recreation Trail makes getting your exercise easy when you live at RiverPointe. Just a short distance from the entry to the development, a paved walking trail and sidewalk through the town of Asotin, Washington lead you to Chief Looking Glass Park and the beginning of this amazing system of trails developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Walk, bike, rollerblade or run four miles along the Snake River from Chief Looking Glass Park to Swallow’s Park and a busy boat launch. From here, you’ll continue under the Southway Bridge, by beaches, through parks and beneath beautiful trees to the confluence of the Clearwater and Snake rivers. Restrooms are available along the way.

If you’re feeling really adventurous, and in the market for more calorie burning, cross the Blue Bridge over to Lewiston, Idaho and continue along the Clearwater River, or turn South towards Hells Gate State Park. It’s somewhere around here that I usually call for backup to meet me for drinks or lunch and a ride back home!

Fall at RiverPointe

It’s a beautiful, fall day at RiverPointe.
A few recent rainstorms have cooled the day time temperatures into the 60s and created some chilly nights. Today, beautiful grey clouds move over the hillside creating a moving pattern of light and shadows.

Fishermen are floating the Snake River in their boats during one of the biggest salmon runs in recent history. Down at the Bird Sanctuary, a couple has their binoculars set on some distant point, watching for bald eagles, or perhaps some other bird migrating through the area. Mule deer are roaming the hillside above the development, keeping an eye on me and my dog, ready to bolt if we head their direction.
