This was a new trip for me. My surgery was coming up in less than two weeks. I wanted to try to make an attempt to stay fit before then but I needed an easy trip that was flat. I'd checked out Cowiche Canyon trip reports and that looked promising.

The trail follows an old RR grade through the canyon. Lots of flowers out...grass widows, yellow bells, and violets. Lots of last years dried plants were still out too, dried up but full of color. It was a nice mix of new and old.
