Temperatures in the 50s brought residents to Riverfront Park and the Spokane Falls in lighter-than-winter clothing to jog, feed birds and take leisurely walks. Many walked the suspension bridge to watch the heavy flows of the Spokane River, flows that are more common during spring months, as opposed to the middle of winter.
