After plenty of time spent sticking to schedules, getting a little lost can be the ultimate delight. That’s why we relish in the four hours it takes to get from Seattle to our Outpost in Glenwood, Washington.
It’s the perfect time to wade into your journey, sink into the unknown, and feel inspired by the little places that you never knew existed. Of course, the greatest treasures are the ones you stumble upon, but here are a few suggestions to get you there.
Explore the Scenic Overlooks along the Gorge
If you take I-5 down Washington to I-84, you’ll spend a lot of your drive right alongside the gorgeous Columbia River. Take your time and pull over at all of the overlooks you see, and simply take in those stunning views.
Hiking in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest
Looking for an alternate route? Drive down on I-12 and save a few hours for hikes in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. There are dozens of trails to choose from, including Angel Falls and Iron Creek Falls, which take you underneath large waterfalls.
Get Lost in Washington Wine Country
If you drive down along I-90, pitstop in Yakima Valley Wine Country. There are over 120 wineries in the region to explore. Go for a wine tasting, and grab a bottle to pop open when you reach your tiny cabin.
