Camping in the Cascade:
Every year, Willow and I do an annual camping trip to Salmon La Sac Campgrounds. The site is located east of the Snoqualmie Summit and just beyond the historic town of Roslyn, where they filmed the TV series "Northern Exposure." The campgrounds are located right on the Cle Elum River and at the trailhead into an Alpine Wilderness area. There are squirrels, chipmunks and deer wandering through the site.
We'll plan on leaving Olalla early
morning and pack-up camp for home on Friday afternoon. Let us know early
if you'd like to join the mountain wilderness adventure, so we can have
enough supplies and food available.
The Annual Olalla Bluegrass Festival:
A yearly event in Olalla, the Bluegrass offers a variety of musical entertainment for the whole day. There are a multitude of booths ... offering foods, informational displays and items for sale. One of the featured highlights is the "Berry Pie Contest", auction and then the remaining pie slices for sale! Be prepared ... there is a charge at the door for individuals or families.

Camping by the Puget Sound:
Taba and I checked out this site last year and there a world of adventure, by the Puget Sound, at Penrose State Park. Camping is actually in the pines, but the beach and picnic area is a short walk away. Depending on the Red Tide Alerts, there may actually be clams and crabs to harvest for dinner. Low tide offers a walk far into the tide lands, for a fantastic look at the natural habitat of sea life.
We'll plan on leaving Olalla early Monday afternoon and pack-up camp for home on Wednesday afternoon. Let us know early if you'd like to join the beach-land adventure, so we can have enough supplies and food available.
