Needs more information
I removed the following information from the article, as this article should be more about the geographical feature, with links to similarly named places, not an article detailing specific areas named "foothills". I am unfamiliar with the subject matter I removed and it was added by an anonymous editor. Removed content:
- Foothills is the name of a rural farming community northeast of Spokane, Washington. Residents' addresses are "Spokane," but the region is in unincorporated Spokane County. The area includes Foothills Community Church, with a congregation of 300-400; a community center operated by Foothills Rural Association, offering several annual events; and a fire station staffed by volunteers. Years ago there also was a school (housed in what is now the community center), a store, and a sawmill. From the church to Spokane Valley the distance is 7 miles and takes only 10 minutes.
- Many of the area's roads bear names of the original settlers, many of whom have descendants still living in Foothills. The church newsletter offers monthly profiles of families with ancestral ties to Foothills. Just north of the area is Mt. Spokane, which has a ski area and other recreational opportunities.
- The foothills in question would appear to be those of the southern Selkirk Mountains, which terminate near Spokane. See GNIS for the 99 entries in USGS with "Foothills" in the name, one of which is a small "mountain range" in Clallam County, which woudl be foothills of the Olympic Mountains.
Rocky Mountain Foothills (Canada) re pic
While the hills portrayed are definitely the RM Foothills as most people in Alberta and Canada would think of htem, the technical location of the officially-named landform is a belt of decidedly moutainous ranges between the rolling country in the picture and the main Rockies; the Alberta geolink on Talk:Rocky Mountain Hills, if followed, will demonstrate what I'm talking about; see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Mountains#Rocky Mountain Foothills created for further issues.Skookum1 (talk) 16:49, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
