For more than 20 years, The Evening Hatch's CPR- and first aid–certified guides have led relaxing full- and half-day river tours down the scenic Yakima and Klickitat Rivers. Guides offer info and anecdotes about the varied flora, fauna, and history of the area, and rafts frequently stop along the river to drop off loot plundered from other rafts and take on more food and drink.
When Josh Lawrence joined his father and uncle to work the land the Lawrence family had farmed for nearly a half-century, he wanted the fruits of his labor to be tasted in a glass. So they began Lawrence Vineyards in 2003 with just one block of vines and a single garden gnome for security in the sunny Frenchman Hills bearing the family's name. From there, the planting and production flourished, and today more than a dozen varieties of grapes populate nearly 125 acres of land. For the Lawrences, Gård Vintners was the natural next step, and a host of award-winning wines followed. Today, they invite visitors into their two tasting rooms to sample a variety of wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Riesling, and refreshing Rosé with notes of strawberry jam and fresh herbs. Guests may also purchase bottles of their favorite varietal or enjoy glasses of Gard Vintners wine at restaurants throughout the area.
Nestled next to the rolling terrain of Mt. Rainier National Park, Crystal Mountain caters to snow people with acres of downhill escapades. The mountain welcomes snow-slingers and extreme gondola-riders with a jib park and a multitude of trails that are suitable mostly for intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders. Expert plank-gliders can make good on their bravado by scaling advanced trails like Sunnyside and Snorting Elk, rugged descents into pools of frozen spätzle. A one-day ski ticket grants alpine riders daytime access to the downhill runs of Crystal Mountain from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the late-spring season (April 21 to June 12).
