  • A fabulous drive through some very impressive scenery. Winthrop was a fantastic stop with interesting shops and little cafes. Can’t recommend the drive through north Cascades National Park enough.  more »
  • We encountered the Methow Valley driving out of Winthrop en route to Mazama. There are numerous forest areas and mountains to explore.  more »

  • The Methow River carves out one of my favorite places in the state. It is the primary drainage for the east side of the North Cascades. It begins high on the Cascade divide, picks up tributaries like the Twisp River, and joins the mighty Columbia River at Pateros. Alpine peaks and forests yield to the dry rainshadow of the east side. The river valley can be cold and snowy in winter and baking hot in summer. Two European explorers "discovered" the river in 1811 already inhabited by indigenous people. David Thompson and Alexander Ross claimed such credit.The river bore several native names, but the more pronouncable Methow stuck which means "Land of Sunflower Seeds".
