Last of the evening light over an estuary along the Spokane River as it winds through Riverside State Park in Eastern Washington
Many of you have walked along the Riverside State Parks trails, from the painted rocks, through 'Birchwood Farm', along the little Spokane River, - completely unaware that you have passed by a 'sacred Native American site'; (The true-story you are about to read, is being told here, for the first time to the group!). We have previously shared with the Riverside State (PARKS), to preserve and protect the area, of the Native Americans (Sacred Sites), at 'Birchwood Farm' Norman Ranch ~ 'they' the (PARKS), are in the process of having there archeological staff go over the sacred area). ~ (NATIVE SWEAT LODGES); Here's the story: Many years ago, before Uncle Ben's land became a ranch, when it was part of a beautiful open country on the Little Spokane River, the Native American's used to meet across the river from his house, under the big rocks you may remember. There we found years ago ruins of their little sweat baths, which they used to heat with big, flat rocks after they had warmed them in an open fire. They dug holes in the ground first; then covered them over with branches of trees and earth. After the rocks were heated, they crawled in and the Native Women put another big flat rock across the opening, so that most of the hot air remained inside. I should think it must have been a very uncomfortable way of taking a bath, but the Native American's thought that a big perspiration would cure anything, and so, when they were sick, they always took their Turkish baths. -
On the face of the rock bluff at the bottom of the high mountain at the upper end of Uncle Ben's ranch you can still see a lot of peculiar signs made by the Native American's with their paints. No one seems to know just what they say, but I suppose they were to direct other Native Americans to this or that place-perhaps to the little bath houses about a mile away. Or, perhaps, it was to tell them that a lot of noisy, bustling white men were meeting together at a place called Spokane, and that Native Americans had better stay away. Anyway, you can see the signs there today and you can also see some of the remains of the little bath houses, though most of them have been plowed up in one of Uncle Ben's fields. I forgot to tell you that after their baths, the Native Americans used to plunge into the little Spokane River, and, believe me, that is the coldest water I ever dived into. I should think the shock would have killed them. ~ Authored, by Sidney Norman, 1928, for his young son Frank Norman-

Hugh Burnett’s account; he stated that the Threshing Barn was present in 1883 They noted the presence of three old buildings: the Threshing Barn, a log cabin with a stone fireplace at the center, and another highly deteriorated log cabin that soon after was dismantled.
Hugh Burnett, later described the Threshing Barn as it appeared in 1883:
"About half a mile south of the mouth of the Little Spokane and toward the Spokane River there was then standing a log building built of peeled logs. The roof timbers were fastened on with wooden pegs and the roof, of cedar shakes, was also fastened on with wooden pegs. The building was built up with a log enclosure at each end and a threshing floor in the middle. At that time it had a floor made of logs hewn by hand. On this floor the Indians threshed their grain, either by using a flail or by putting in two or three Cayuse ponies to trample the grain out" (Lewis 1925). The Northern Pacific Railroad; reported during their survey the following;
“This building stood farther to the west near the woods in 1885, left incomplete with no roof by an unknown squatter. The logs were carefully numbered and moved over near the present ranch buildings, and then put together again. We fixed it up and used it for sleeping quarters. When B. L. Gordon bought the place in 1912 he moved it to its present position. Gordon believed it had some historical value and was not pleased when told it was of no importance.” ~ The statement relative to the old log building; was made by Oswald Burnett to the writer on April 14, 1946. Daniel Drumheller’s account Feb. 9th 1916; described it like this;
“An old over-shot water mill was situated at Selheim springs just upriver from the little Spokane Rivers mouth, at the site of the Old Spokane House, when he first saw the point of land as it appeared at the junction of the Spokane and Little Spokane Rivers, during his travels through the HBC site in 1880, when he said nobody was there, at Selheim Springs, a few miles above the mouth of the little Spokane River, there was an old over-shot wooden water wheel, which he thought was used by the Hudson’s Bay people for a saw mill or for grinding grain.” (There's more to this history-to much to list here in a small timeline.)

REAL TALK! You walk into the toilet at a trailhead, and the smell is UNBEARABLE! So, you prop the bathroom door open or leave the toilet lid up, hoping this will help. Turns out, that's the worst thing you can do. Concrete vault toilets like the one in the photo use the sun to provide ventilation. The warm sun shining on the toilet’s walls and ventilation stack pulls the air in the vault beneath the toilet out through the stack and pulls in fresh air to replace it. This ventilation keeps the toilet from reeking. However, if you leave the door to the toilet open or the toilet lid up, the ventilation system doesn’t work properly, and odors abound. The next time you use a trailhead or campground toilet, please put the toilet lid down and close the door. Give that ventilation system a chance to work, so we can all enjoy (well, enjoy is too strong a word, but you get the idea) a less-revolting bathroom experience.

🗣 BIG shout out to our local State Park staff. 🗣
We would like to acknowledge that our State Park has stayed open for us all to enjoy when we need it most. With budget cuts abound, and a huge increase in visitors, State Park workers are as essential as ever.

THANK YOU to all the folks who are working to keep our State Park open, the bathrooms cleaned, the trails safe and passable, and trash containers emptied. Having a beautiful state park in our midst is a gift, and so are the people who are working hard this Summer to keep it a place we can all enjoy.

Thank you State Parks workers! 💚
