 What:  This was a salmon smoking pit area above the Spokane river in Riverside State Park. Below it are numerous teepee circles where the earth was dug into a few feet and then the teepee was put over it for extra insulation. I wish that permissions could be granted to visit this site  with a guide since it is an interesting place to visit. When I first discovered this place I gave the location and it was the most visited site on the website, but then the Park ranger shut that down after requests from the Spokane tribe.

 Where:  Not allowed to give location of this site as it is considered sacred by the Spokane tribe.

 Cautions:
