Hosted by RickAsk a question
Rick Dyer is an inventor. Probably best known as the creator of the hit video game 'Dragon’s Lair'. Rick considers it a great privilege to live in such a beautiful place... Our family fell in love with the peace and tranquility of this magnificent location and coziness of our house. Most noticeable is the lack of traffic and sirens, just the quiet sounds of nature. I love the four seasons, each for their own unique character.
Rick purchased this House in 2017
Why Rick chose Spokane
GO BACK IN TIME ON THE LITTLE SPOKANE RIVER... Imagine yourself gently guiding your birch bark canoe through the serpentine meanders of the Little Spokane River. You stop your pelt-laden canoe only long enough to check the next trap or perhaps study the long-legged Great Blue Heron fishing the shallows for some unlucky rainbow trout. Such was the scene that early fur trader and explorer David Thompson may have viewed with his interpreter & guide Jacques Finlay as they canoed the river in search of beaver and muskrat in the early 1800's. Today, you may still explore the Little Spokane River & experience much of the same environment as David Thompson discovered almost 200 years ago. The river remains pristine, undisturbed by the march of civilization occurring just a couple miles away and seemingly centuries removed. FOREST BATHING: What it is and why you should try it MAY 16, 2019 Our days are mostly spent away from sunshine, trees, water, and fresh air. While our modern way of life can be convenient, it’s taking us away from the health benefits of nature. To the point where going outside should now be a priority. This is where the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku — or forest bathing — can help. What is forest bathing? In 1982, the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries created the term Shinrin-yoku, which translates to “absorbing the forest atmosphere.” The goal of forest bathing is to immerse your senses in the sights and sounds of a natural setting. Does it work? The more in-depth practice of forest bathing has been found to lower blood pressure, heart rates, and levels of harmful hormones — like cortisol, which your body produces when stressed. This can help put you in a more calm and relaxed state. How to practice forest bathing Take a trip to a natural forest setting. Just be sure to turn off or silence your phone or any other device. The key is in a natural environment surrounded by Nature & wildlife.
What makes this House unique
HOW TO EXPLORE THE LITTLE SPOKANE RIVER. Perhaps the best way to experience The Little Spokane is by quietly paddling a canoe or kayak down the river. Stealthy observers may see a wide variety of songbirds, woodpeckers, raptors, and waterfowl. A great blue heron rookery can be found in tall cottonwoods by the river. Please travel quietly because these birds are sensitive to disturbance. This area is closely monitored and may be closed during the critical nesting season, which runs from March to mid-May. Badgers. Otters, Beaver, muskrat, porcupines, raccoons, coyotes, marmots, white-tailed deer, and others -- even moose -- call this place home. Remember to stay away from wildlife, such as bear,cougar, and moose, particularly during calf season. Any wild animal will take extreme measures to protect its young ones. Rattlesnakes also inhabit this area, although they are seldom seen, so walk with awareness. We are guests in their home. Please respect them. Wonder at the ancient Indian rock pictographs and about the people who painted them. Hike along some or all of the six miles of trails (Riverside Park area) to re-discover a sense of solitude and sensitivity. A blanket of white may encourage a cross-country ski trek. More hearty voyagers will take to paddle. Helpful Hints • Parking and canoe launch sites* are right in front of our house; or, at Pine River Park for pick-up or launch. * In the Riverside Park area at the upstream launch off St. George's School Road and at the Indian Painted Rocks. Both are reached off Rutter Parkway. You must carry your watercraft a short distance at both launches • There is a takeout at Pine River Park; or, on the boat launch road off Highway 291, north of Nine Mile Falls. • Anyone paddling the Little Spokane should know the basics of maneuvering their craft around sharp turns and brushy banks. Enjoy your visit, and remember to respect our wildlife and "leave no trace".
