The corridor we traveled consists of the highway running along Banks Lake. The road is tucked in between the lake and the cliffs. There are a slew parks along the highway, all of which have great views. There are not a lot of reasons to...More

Stop in Soap Lake to see the World's Largest Human Figure Sundial "Calling the Healing Waters". Located right of Hwy 17 in the Smokiam (formerly East Beach) Park. Same artist as the Ponies at Vantage. Beautiful, dramatic, memorable.
