The Upper Columbia River Bike and Run was a huge success! We had people come from all around, including Spokane, WA and even Moscow, ID! The morning was rainy and cold but minutes before the event the sky parted and proved to be a beautiful day for running and biking.

February’s free Adventure activity was making pitch sticks from Douglas Fir and Ponderosa Pine. Pitch sticks are used to store pitch glue for future use. We had a showing of 10 eager participants that ranged from 10 years old to adults.
The adventure was a blast! Ten people braved the 20-25 degree Fahrenheit temperatures for a fun day of sledding and adventure. The kids brought their toboggans, inner tubes and saucers to a safe steep hill with no trees, rocks, cliffs or any other dangerous obstacles. Lunch of hot chocolate, roasted hot-dogs and marshmallows was later served at a campfire. Finally, we all explored a frozen pond and hiked into a steep walled canyon with a spring fed creek. It was absolutely breath taking!
Make sure to join us during out next SMOS Adventure on February 9th!
