Living in a desert setting, it's easy to forget there is such deep forest beauty just 20 minutes from us. But State Rout 410 between Naches and Whistlin' Jack Lodge is absolutely breathtaking. It truly is Mother Nature's gift to us. There are so many sights to see. I remember the first time I drove toward Chinook Pass I passed by a camping resort. I saw a bear chasing a guy up a tree.
Downtown Summer Nights was, naturally, a hit this week (June 22). What a blast! We had so many people there it was incredible! And every direction I turned, there was someone with a Seahawks jersey, T-shirt or even shoes. Seahawk fans are everywhere, even in the middle of the summer at Downtown Summer Nights.
But when someone paints a $45,000 truck with everything Seahawks-related, it takes pride to a whole new level.
Yakima's Relay for Life is this Saturday at West Valley High School -- and what an amazing cause. The fight for cancer is no joke. You don't have to sign up early. You can go on Saturday and join in on the fight for cancer and celebrate the survivors who are already beating it.
If I ever went blind and I had to remember what something looks like or how I felt when I was there, it would be Tuesday night's ride to Whistlin' Jack Lodge. It really has to be one of the more beautiful places in the world. I smells fantastic and it gives me some sort of peace while I am there. Taking a motorcycle ride up there is even better.
I remember while I was growing up, we lived out in the boondocks. Seriously, we lived 16 miles in the middle of nowhere. When I was really young, I thought it was pretty cool. Then when I got older, not so much. However, the wildlife was awesome. I would see coyotes, wolves, deer and antelope all the time. My niece lives in Wyoming. She sent me the photo of the deer just hanging out on her sidewalk.
Washington really is such a beautiful state. From the top to the bottom and even some of the desert spots in the middle of the state. The Yakima River Canyon is gorgeous. The hop fields in Moxee are always fun to look at. But one of my favorite trips is going toward Chinook Pass. It is breathtaking. This Tuesday (June 20) you can join me on that beautiful ride.
I as driving home pretty late Thursday night after an amazing Downtown Summer Nights. I stopped by the AM/PM (since it is the only thing open that late) to get some Cheetos. I went in the parking lot right by Joel's Tires and I saw this wheelchair.
With clouds looming and rain pattering, Thursday night's Downtown Summer Nights opening started out looking pretty ugly. But as the music started, the skies brightened -- and all of a sudden everything started looking like a lot more fun...
But the latest scary health study might make you lose your appetite. Scientists from the National Research Council in Padova, Italy, say people who eat fried potatoes two or more times per week are doubling their risk of early death, according to CNN.
