Mt. St. Helens

The interest has only grown as the 40 Year Anniversary of the explosion of Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. Get a closeup look at how this event changed the landscape and eco system along with it’s recovery. Plenty to see and a great way to spend the day/weekend with your family.

Valley Of The Giants!

Valley of the Giants located in the Quinault Rain Forest at Olympic National Park. Here you will find the largest Sitka Spruce trees in the world, myriad waterfalls and watchable wildlife.

The Columbia River Gorge...

...has a secret – Shhh, keep it on the DL – It's wine growing country! The unique combination of climate, soil, elevation and geology of the gorge combine to produce some of the best and most varied grape varietals in the Pacific Northwest. The views are pretty amazing, too! It’s our secret, right?

Olympic Peninsula Waterfall Trail.

The rain-forest trails in Olympic National Park offer easy and beautiful hikes with signs guiding your way. If hiking is your thing, you will have plenty of choices in our beautiful state of Washington!

Shi Shi Beach...

…is easily one of WA's most beautiful stretches of beach. The journey to get there is an experience itself - a rain forest hike, boardwalks and bridges that bring breathtaking beach views! Bring your hiking shoes and your bathing suit!

Sweet Creek Falls

Up North East you will find Sweet Creek Falls located near Ione, Washington. Hiking is a premium here! There is a short trail that passes through a dense forest to three lovely waterfalls. See unique rock cliffs and the remains of a frontier wooden water system along the pristine creek.
