Downtown Spokane in the distance

I took this shot of Spokane from a plateau showing the hills on the other side of the city proper. This "bottom-of-the-dish" effect causes some adverse air conditions including the haze you can see in this shot. The latest population figures for Spokane in 2010 was 471,221. Weather reports for Spokane can vary considerably since they come a weather station in the valley and from the International Airport west of town which is about 400 feet higher.(121m)
