Surrounded by rolling hills and the distant peaks of the Cascade Mountains, the Yakima River Canyon teems with wildlife on the hills, in the water, and in the air. Wild rainbow bass and cutthroat trout swim beneath the river's rushing waters. This destination attracts many fishers and upland bird hunters. In the fly-fishing classes, instructors teach anglers to read the river and cast a line before sending them out into the Yakima River to put their skills to the test on wild trout.

Elsewhere in the canyon, a sporting-clay course beckons guests to fire shotguns at seven different stations. These practice areas simulate real-life hunting conditions for various game-bird species, including chukars, pheasants, ducks, and other species. After hunters hone their skills on clay targets, willing sportsmen and women can join the Red's guide team for a day of guided upland bird hunting.

Whether for fishing, hunting, or both, Red's Fly Shop staffers schedule single and multiday outings that depart from The Canyon River Ranch Lodge, the company's home base. At the lodge, guests can warm themselves by the fireplace or retire to rooms with patios and verandas.

Jeff Wood, the founder of Health Fitness Complete, understands the difficulty in achieving exercise and health goals—he lost 125 pounds in 2007. He's taken his personal experience and created a fitness center that offers the best training methods and equipment for its customers. One-on-one training sessions are just that—private, with only the trainer and client present, allowing clients to feel more comfortable without others looking on. And in both personal-training sessions and fitness classes, customers work out with dynamic equipment that exercises myriad body parts and muscle groups. Machines where users sit down may allow the chance to sketch out updates to the Nike swoosh, but rob exercisers the ability to train postural and other muscles. Instead, Health Fitness Complete offers many pieces of equipment that allow clients to work out multiple muscles more effectively.

When October rolls around, family-operated Huffman Farms gets very busy. It's not just the autumn harvest that brings people to the 36-acre farm, but also the activities that revolve around the pumpkin patch. Families can pick future jack-o-lanterns from 25 varieties of pumpkins, squash, and gourds. While enjoying the autumn sunshine, they can also slide down the 20-foot straw bale slides or meet friendly farm animals at the petting zoo. Each weekend in October has a different theme, whether its the pumpkin olympics, pumpkin carving, or a farm-wide costume contest. When hunger strikes, families can also indulge in barbecue fresh from the grill or treats such as pumpkin cupcakes, which confer the classic tastes of fall without munching on fallen leaves.
