Cashmere is a beautiful small town surrounded by fruit orchards and smooth beige hills (looking just like a cashmere coat). Takes a bit to reprogram my brain to recognize brown after months of so much green!
|Good dog TV here.|
One of our days we check out Icicle River RV Park (crowded with small sites), and discover a beautiful drive into the surrounding mountains. A well-maintained road with several campgrounds for tents and small trailers follows the river through a deep canyon.
Friday we're back on Hwy 2 for two hours through miles and miles of serene wheat fields. We can definitely stretch our eyes in these wide open spaces. Sadly we've also caught up with the smoke :-( By the time we pass Dry Falls visibility is seriously impacted.
|Fort Spokane Visitor Center is still closed.|
|Most of the grounds are vacant now.|
|The trails are so dry they crackle.|
|Amber pine cones dot the ground.|
|The fort eventually became a school for local tribes. Teaching them to farm the area is credited for the large agricultural community that now defines the area.|
|Smoke along the Columbia River|
|Vintage structures next to a very busy boat launch in Lincoln, Washington,|
The RV park has "room service" from their little cafe which we enjoy one evening. It's one of two eateries in the little town!
