Normally cameras are used to capture an image with either film or digital sensor.
But one point-and-shoot recently caught a portrait of society without ever being turned on.
The Spokane area was blessed with beautiful blue skies and warm temperatures on Easter Sunday.
It was the perfect day for a hike.
My family and I headed to the Big Rock - Rocks of Sharon on the back side of the south hill just off the Palouse Highway.
Spokane County opened a trailhead parking area on Stevens Creek Road last summer. The area is a favorite for rock climbers and hikers alike, offering massive rock faces to scale and spectacular views of the Palouse. On a clear day, Steptoe Butte can be seen rising in the south.
Our hike started off with the typical happy sounds of kids running and jumping through the forest and mom yelling for them to stay out of the mud. The glorious start was nearly derailed when one walking-stick-hunting-brother got whacked in the eye with an errant branch.
