What/where to go/do one full day here

Hi all,

Our wonderful college visit to Whitman is finished.

We have all day tomorrow to explore. We have a car. No wineries. Already planning on visiting the farmer's mkt but what else?

Suggestions please.

Thank you, m

Thank you for the speedy response Island Girl.

Have never been to Washington. I don't mind driving about 90 min away one way.

Was hoping to get out of Walla Walla a bit.

Any neat forests or mountains near?

Thanks again, m

Yes, the Blue Mountains are right outside WW.

Here is a hike outside Dayton:

Here is a good list of Hikes from the Whitman College Pioneer:

When you are touring Whitman, see if you can connect with Professor Bob Carson, particularly if your child is interested in environmental science, geology, etc. He's outstanding.

Well we drive to Idaho! Beautiful! We drive to Lewiston, ate at a Thai place, and walked around Hell's Gate park.

Unbelievable beauty. God's glory.

Thank you for the tips. M
