    Winthrop, because it's a cool town.

    Lake Chelan has the "Lady of the Lake".

    Rocky Reach Dam

    Grand Coulee Dam

    Rock Island Dam

    Lots of State parks, hiking trails and other types of things.

    So, a question for you is, What are you looking for? Just cool stuff to look at? Stuff that is fun for the kids? Camping? Biking? Hiking?

    A little of everything that little kids can take part in. Short hikes are cool but I cannot do long ones to to my screwed up feet and back. I would like to do some group adventures with the members on this site.

    99 has requested to add Grand Coulee Dam and Maryhill Museum to the list of future events.

    I have been to the town of Liberty and to some of the trails. We do plan to wheel Liberty again this year to hit more trails. The backroad adventure to Liberty sounds like one for the list.

    Been to Roslyn a few times. Here is last summer's pictures: http://www.easternwashingtonoffroad....an-Tour-Roslyn
    Two weeks ago we partied in Roslyn on Saturday night with Ron the Parts Guy.



    Dirt roads from Wenatchee to Lake Chelan sound like another trip to add.

    Been to most of those places on the west side since we lived over there and may hit some of them again this summer. Don't forget NW Trek. One of our favorites.
    But we are looking for places to visit in Eastern Washington since this is an Eastern Washington site.

    I like the Liberty idea, and the backroads idea.

    I haven't traversed it yet, but I can get from Leavenworth to Chelan on dirt. One of the access canyons is 7 miles from my place.

    My kids enjoy site seeing, wheelin', hiking, exploring and riding around. Their favorite town is Leavenworth.

    I know you don't ride anymore but there is also horse back rides at Lake Wenatchee State Park. Lots of hiking trails around the area. Aside from Leavenworth, I could keep you guys busy for weeks up here.

    I sure wish I knew you when I could still ride horses and hike. I loved both but can't anymore. The last few years the pain has gotten worse. I only got to ride my quad twice off my place last year and the short rides I took killed me. Getting old sucks.

    Want to have fun with the kids and do some wheelin, hiking, nature, geology??

    Wheel up to red top mountain (opposite side of blewitt than Liberty) When you get up top hike up to the lookout and then on to where you can mine for aggets. Or skip the lookout for a shorter easier hike. It is about a mile if I remember correctly to the agget area. People have gotten aggets the size of your head from up there and the holes got so big that the forrest service had to chopper in a loader to fill all the holes in one year. We where there for a couple hours and found quite a few small ones. Its fun for everyone =)
