Kamiak Butte

Kamiak Butte is the closest real hike to my house, a three mile loop with a gorgeous view of the Palouse (or five and a half miles if you take the much longer route, though dogs aren’t allowed). It’s especially beautiful in the late April or Early May, when the wildflowers are at their peak, and the top of the Butte is covered with Arrowleaf Balsamroot.

You can walk up the long, steadily sloping shady side or the steep but shorter sunny side. The middle part, a gently sloping ridge along the top, has the views.
This rock looks like the face of an old Indian.
I always look forward to passing under this leaning tree.

The view is beautiful in every season, here’s a picture taken in the fall

That’s my sister, my husband and my dog along the top. I’ve done this hike many times with friends.
