At its core, the Adventure Park at Redhook is a "jungle gym built for adventurers." But more than that, it provides visitors with an escape from the everyday drudgery of stuffy offices, boring paperwork, and tedious leg-walking. For the park’s creators, the lush Pacific Northwest countryside that stretches out around the park is the office. They’re a band of adventurers themselves, and they designed Adventura as a way for others to experience the growth, laughter, and connections that seem to bloom naturally outdoors.
Of course, Adventura puts its own spin on spending time outdoors by filling Woodinville Wine Country with a series of sky-high exploits. With the park typically booked 45 days in advance, visitors can be found leaping from decks, balancing precariously on cables 50 feet off the ground, or scaling cargo nets throughout most of the year.

Though he once dreamed of becoming an astronaut, Christopher Hagedorn instead found his passion on the Earth; he's worked as a national forest hydrologist, oceanography-engineering consultant, and mountaineering-and-wilderness-leadership instructor. After roaming the country on more than 30 extended wilderness trips, he came to rest in the North Cascade Mountains where he leads adventure day trips and wilderness-skills classes. He and his team of experienced guides lead explorers of all ages on Family Adventure Backpacking trips to secluded and mostly unknown destinations, tackling rocky beaches, mountain hillsides, and coniferous forests.
On mountaineering trips, Get In The Wild shows groups how to traverse North Cascades National Park's rugged peaks, roaring waterfalls, and glaciers without having to arm-wrestle bears for passage. Canyoneering trips explore the Dirty Devil River and Capitol Reef National Park, navigating historic sandstone cliffs, rocky domes, and winding canyons; and give photographers the chance to focus their lenses on the wilderness of Southern Utah. Throughout their adventures, the guides keep their charges fueled with gourmet camp food, preparing vegetarian, vegan, and kosher options upon request.
They also lead classes in hiking, glacier climbing, snow camping, canyoneering, and wilderness navigation to help adventurers blaze their own trails.
On Tuesday evenings, members of the Woodinville Square Crows convene to do-si-do the evening away. Founded as a non-profit dedicated to spreading the fellowship of square dancing one call at a time, the club stages its welcoming dances in a quaint studio with wooden walls, wooden floors, and white draperies on the windows. The crowd is typically multigenerational, and the mood is lighthearted as partners spin through the social dance. Organized into "squares" of four couples each, dancers follow the whims of the caller, who choreographs the dance on the fly by calling out the names of simple dance moves to form ever-shifting formations and patterns. Emphasizing cooperation and attentiveness over foot placement and weight shifting, each dance is the unique product of its participants camaraderie and creativity; in fact, no two are alike.
The club sponsors a 16-week program of lessons, with the first eight weeks dedicated to basic moves and the second eight weeks dedicated to linking those moves with additional connecting moves. In addition, the Woodinville Square Crows also spread the love of the dancing with parties held on the first and third Friday of each month, and even organize caravans to the dances hosted by other area clubs to foster fellowship in the larger square dance community.
