Travel Tips for Spokane
Spokane Falls Legend
One Day Coyote was enjoying the banks of the Spokane River. He gazed across the river and saw a local tribe getting ready to fish for salmon for the winter – the local tribe enjoyed the fish and had lots of it. Coyote saw a beautiful Indian woman from this tribe. In his eyes she was the most beautiful woman in the world and he knew right then and there that he had to have her.
Coyote began the task of gathering mice, trinkets and other things that were important to him to give to the chief of the tribe in exchange for the privilege of marrying the woman, who it turned out was the chief’s daughter. The Chief turned him down, refusing to let him marry his daughter. Coyote left mad, but when he saw the woman again he just knew he had to have her. So he approached her but she got scared and ran away from him.
“If the Chief wants more he’ll get more.”
So he began the task of gathering even more to give to the Chief. The Chief stood his ground and refused to allow Coyote to marry a human. Coyote warned the Chief that if he couldn’t marry the woman, he would use his special powers to punish the Chief and his people. He threatened to ruin the water and the fish. The Chief didn’t believe it and dismissed Coyote.
Coyote prayed to the animal spirit for special powers. The animal spirit would not grant such powers unless it was certain no one would get hurt. The clever trickster coyote reassured the animal spirit that he only wanted to move rocks. The animal spirit granted him the power since it seemed harmless. But Coyote took his special powers and moved some huge rocks creating Spokane Falls, which blocked the salmon from reaching the tribe upstream.
Then, Coyote asked the tribes downstream for their help to get the woman, but he was refused by them also. After that he was mad at all the tribes along the river, so he put rocks all the way down the river to where it empties into the Columbia.
From that time the salmon were gone from the Spokane River and all its tributaries forever.

MUST VISIT Chocolate Apothecary while in Spokane
"Must Visit Chocolate Apothecary while in Spokane"
While traveling to Spokane, WA there are many places to visit and see. One of the most interesting and historic places to visit is The Flour Mill, located behind the Spokane Arena near Downtown Spokane.
The Flour Mill is a collection of various shops selling all sorts of wonderful things, but the one place I enjoyed the most was Chocolate Apothecary. This unique gourmet chocolate shop had everything! Including rich flavorful drinking chocolates that make my mouth water just thinking about it! They had a ton of novelty chocolate items such as chocolate vitamins and even chocolate bacon!
If you are visiting Spokane, WA anytime soon I definitely suggest checking this place out!
