Take A Scenic Drive Down One Of Washington’s Windiest Grades [VIDEO]

I grew up in the Lewiston/Clarkston Valley, but for six years of my life I was a foster kid and lived at the confluence of the Grand Ronde River on the border of the Washington/Oregon border. I lived right at the bottom of the Rattlesnake Grade on the Washington side and on the other side was the Buford Grade that proceeded to Oregon.

I had to be bused to school each day to Asotin, WA as is our state law. It was 62 miles round trip and it wasn’t a straight line to school.  I had to travel up the Asotin Grade on Highway 129, past Anatone and further past Field’s Spring State Park.

The portion of the daily bus ride that is probably the scariest during winter is the Rattlesnake Grade.  The American Motorcycle Association designated the grade as one of the top 15 motorcycle rides in America and the winding grade definitely lives up to its name, but think about if you are an 8-yr old kid traveling that daily and running into snow.

Ski & Snowboard Swap Coming Oct. 30 With White Pass and KATS

When winter is on the way, most of us want some new stuff to play with -- which means it's time to trade in your old stuff. Most of the time, though, it is hard to get back the kind of cash that you spent just by putting it on Craigslist or Facebook.

My snowboard was $900. That is a lot of cash, but I want something new now.
