Endless terrain. There are Mountains in Washington East of the Cascades, minus the crowds. Endless wild terrain to explore.

Beautiful place to hike, see wildlife, and get away from the stress and hustle of your work week. Four wheel drive vehicle is suggested, I drive a Tahoe, and be sure to have an emergency kit and supplies in your vehicle and a two way radio. Cell service is sketchy although emergency calls should ping off the emergency system.

As a young boy I was introduced to the Colville National Forest. I have spent a great deal of my time off ( at least 2 weeks a year , every year ) out and about on this forest. Sadly over the past 2 decades this forest has fallen victim to what so many other forests have. It has been... More

We visited the little cabin and chapel that the Black Robes said mass in. Very beautiful and peaceful setting with some history to boot.
