In 1907, the Hood River County Pioneer Society started collecting documents and artifacts that reflected the diversity and culture of their region. Now those items are housed at The History Museum in a collection that totals 11,000-plus pieces and continues to grow weekly. With a focus on memorabilia that dates from the Native American era to the present, the museum’s exhibits include horse-drawn carriages, phonographs, and the barometer a witch concocted to predict the weather.

To further immerse visitors in the county’s history, the costumed guides of the museum’s annual Cemetery Tales relay historical anecdotes during stops at notable gravesides. The tours are one of many events and educational programs available through the museum, many of which are geared toward kids. Other include yoga sessions that relate different poses to points in history and camps where youngsters learn to throw an atlatl, a spear used by Native Americans.

Water is the source of life. But it?s also the source of adventure, something River Recreation has delivered since 1982. Today, stationed on the banks of the Wenatchee River in Monitor, the company sends clients floating down a total of seven rivers throughout Washington State.

As entertaining as they are informative, River Recreation?s guides undergo extensive training?twice as much, in fact, than the state requirements. That experience enables the company to offer a wide range of trips, from kid-friendly Class I floats to heart-pumping Class V adventures that have helped discover some of the area?s top opera singers. Currently, River Recreation hosts half-day, full-day, and combination trips, and in 2010, it unveiled a white water-and-wine mini getaway?a half-day of rafting, and a half day of wine tasting in Wenatchee Valley. All of this is combined to make RIver Recreation Washington State's Whitewater Professionals.

"Come get naked with us." It sounds like an indecent proposal, but it's really a call to action from Naked Winery?specifically a call to grab some of the cheeky winery's offerings. Its winemakers use grapes grown in both hot and dry climates and cool marine climates in Oregon and Washington to produce vintages such as Foreplay chardonnay and the sweet red Blazing Straddle.

The masterminds behind the winery, the Barringer and Michalec families, gave their creations such sassy names partly because of the wines' ability to seduce palates. But they also did it because they loved the idea of couples sipping a glass at night and sharing a laugh over the names and saucy descriptions on the label.

No strangers to the great outdoors, the guides of Sage Canyon River Company help visitors tackle the great outdoors on whitewater-rafting, camping, and fishing expeditions. Adventures range from three-hour jaunts to multiday trips into the wilds of the Oregon frontier, giving outdoorsmen many options for experiencing nature. Thrill seekers can steer a raft or oversize rubber duck through calm waters amid desert-rock formations or crash through Class IV rapids?including the challenging Oak Springs on the Deschutes River?under the direction of a trained guide. For adventures that tend to keep the water outside of the boat, fishing trips journey into Sherars Falls and Macks Canyon in search of trout and steelhead, with fly- and reel-casting opportunities.

Summit Ski Area?s unbroken streak of operation dates all the way back to 1927, making it the nation?s second oldest continuously operating ski destination. In 10 separate decades, skiers have strapped on their skis and negotiated the terrain?s 306 feet of vertical drop, slaloming down runs such as Bumble Bee, Yellow Jacket, and Alpine Trail to the base elevation of 4,000 feet. The spot also boasts 15 kilometers of Nordic trails designed by four-time Olympian Bill Koch. Opened to cross-country skiers in 1992, the trails help round out the area?s snow-sport offerings, which also include skiing, snowboarding, tubing, and abominable-snowman taunting.

Waving Tree Winery churns out award-winning wines. But instead of using its syrah, orange muscat, and other varietals to fill a delicious moat around the facility, Waving Tree shares them at its tasting room in Kirkland. Here, visitors can immerse themselves into the cozy room's dark tones while tasting Waving Tree's many productions. In between sips, they can also munch on small plates, flip through books, or explore rotating art exhibits showcasing the talents of local artists.
