Bowl & Pitcher: Spokane's Treasure---Been There?


Everybody in Spokane either has been to the Bowl & Pitcher Park or wants to go soon or should go! It's a one-of-a-kind-special feature on the list of things that make Spokane great. My first date with future hubby was a walk across that bridge. How about you? Bowl & Pitcher memories? 

Why is it called Bowl and Pitcher Spokane?
The Bowl and Pitcher are contains large basalt rock formations surrounding a turbulent Spokane River. Supposedly, several of the rock formations look like a bowl and a pitcher.
Rushing waters of the Spokane River go through and around the cave. The cave looks like a bowl placed on the side of it brim surrounded by other rocks. On the west side of the river, south of the bowl is a mass of basaltic rock that is shaped like a pitcher. This mass of rock is known as the pitcher of the park.
