The Inland Northwest has much to offer. Whether you’ve been here a lifetime or are visiting for the first time, the recreational and cultural opportunities are endless.

No matter if it’s a small north central Idaho town celebrating a holiday festival or a trip to the slopes, we think each item in the fall issue of Let’s Go has something to offer our readers.

This guide is designed to introduce newbies and visitors, as well as remind old timers of the opportunities available in our little corner of the world.

Let’s Go includes information about the region’s history and offerings as well as golfing opportunities, museums and more. All the things that make our area a great place to visit. As you’ll see,

this is an area like no other.Please keep in mind you can receive more infor-

mation about places and events in north central Idaho, southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon by contacting local chambers of com-merce, city halls, tourist bureaus and the advertis-ers included in this publication (see page 23 for a list of chambers and advertisers).

Few places offer the amount, variety and acces-sibility of diversions all in one region. With a natu-ral wonderland at our doorstep and the weather to enjoy it pretty much year-round, getting away from it all is neither difficult nor distant.

Beautiful golf courses, ski slopes, snow-mobile trails, popular hunting spots and year-round fishing complete the picture.

Well, almost. Collegiate sports, live theater, a first-rate regional symphony, band concerts, living history, and a variety of festivals and special events are among our assets.

People of all ages are found throughout the year on the Clearwater and Snake River Recreation Trail, a 25-mile-long greenbelt with paved path-ways between the three towns that make up our amazing valley — Lewiston, Clarkston and Asotin.

Fishing is popular and you don’t even have to leave town to get on the water. Five public boat ramps and two marinas are within a few miles of each other. Rivers and nearby lakes teem

with trout, sturgeon, bass and kokanee that await you, whether you troll, spin, bait cast or fly fish. Some of the hottest steelhead fishing is right here. Outstanding deer, elk and bird hunting are minutes from town on public and private land. Three nearby national forests are popular destinations. Ranger stations in the nearby towns of Orofino, Grangeville and Potlatch offer maps and information. And these only scratch the surface of why the Inland Northwest is such a great place to live or vacation.

We hope you enjoy Let’s Go and more importantly that it helps you enjoy the Inland Northwest.

The Lewiston-Clarkston Valley, made up of three towns in two states divided in land by one mighty river, is home to about 50,000 people, a state college and a com-munity college, not to mention some of the best fishing seen

in the Inland Northwest.On the west side of the Snake River is Clarkston, which was orig-

inally named Jawbone Flats. Under its current name, in homage to William Clark, of the Lewis and Clark expedition, the town was incorporated in 1902. The east side of the Snake River, is where Lewiston is located. The town was established in the early days of the Gold Rush and was the first capital of the Idaho Territory from 1863-1864 when the capital moved south to Boise. Like its coun-terpart on the other side of the Snake River, Lewiston was named for Meriwether Lewis, of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Asotin, the county seat for Asotin County is just south of Clarkston, and the third and smallest portion of the valley. The town got its name from the area’s native dwellers, the Nez Perce Indians. Asotin is derived from the Nez Perce language term meaning eel creek. It was founded in 1878 and became a river ferry stop in 1881.

Together, these three towns offer endless possibilities for recre-ation and culture. In 2009, Outdoor Life magazine rated Lewiston No. 1 out of the top 200 Towns for Sportsmen. As if that’s not enough to brag about, Lewiston’s oldest neighborhood of Normal Hill, where Lewis-Clark State College has its main campus, was named one of the “Best Old House Neighborhoods 2011: The West and Northwest,” by This Old House.

But the valley is most known for its outdoor living. The green-belt of the Clearwater and Snake River National Recreational Trail follow the Snake River from Highway 129 at Clarkston to Chief Looking Glass Park at Asotin. The paved trail offers 16 miles of landscaped pathways connecting Asotin, Clarkston and Lewiston. Many residents and visitors alike enjoy walking, running and bik-ing along the trail year-round. Visitors can enjoy the view of sheer cliffs on the Washington side or Hells Gate State Park on the Idaho side.

Hells Gate State Park, includes 200 acres that border the river. Hells Gate Marina has more than 100 slips available on a daily to yearly basis. There is also a public boat launch, store, restrooms

The trifecta that is the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley

The community is highly invested in the na-ture surrounding it as evidenced at the Jack O’Connor Hunting, Heritage and Education Center. The center sits on a hilltop just inside Hells Gate State Park, with a commanding view of the Snake River and the area Jack O’Connor called home. It tells the story of the world-famous outdoor writer and hunter, and features some of his trophies and firearms. The center also promotes and perpetuates the hunting heritage of America by educating the public about the important role hunting plays in resource management. For more informa-tion about the center call (208) 743-5043 or visit its website at www.jack-oconnor.org/.

Fields Spring State Park is just 23 miles south of Asotin on State Route 129. This park is one of the areas best-kept secrets, a 792-acre gem rising out of the Blue Mountains along a Nez Perce Indian seasonal migration route. The park’s highest point is Puffer Butte at 4,500 feet and offers a splendid view of Washington, Oregon and Idaho, as well as the Grande Ronde River. The park is open year-round for camping and day use. This is a

popular spot for snow mobiling, sleding and cross-country skiing.

There are 20 campsites available; each is suited for tent or RV use. Campsites are first-come, first-serve. The park has two restrooms, one of them being handicapped accessible, and two showers. The park also has two kitch-en shelters with electricity and 35 picnic tables in the open.

Granite Lake RV Resort, located on the Lower Granite Lake in Clarkston, offers golf-ing, biking, fishing, sailing or just relaxing in your landscaped site. Facilities include 75 full-hookup RV sites with 18 pull-through sites, 50-foot maximum RV length, phone hookups and TV hookups. Call (509) 751-1635 to reserve a spot.

Hells Canyon Resort, also located in Clarkston, is open year round. Its deluxe RV park features 36 pull-through spaces and 11 back-in spaces. All spaces have 30/50 amp power connections. The facility is completely handicapped accessible and offers private re-strooms, free wireless Internet, a convenience store, a dog run, a full-service marina, and an indoor pool and hot tub. Call (509) 758-6963

for more information or visit them online at www.hellscanyon.net.

Host to many events in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley, Lewis-Clark State College pro-vides the community with a top-notch educa-tional resource, as well as cultural and artistic enrichment. Also provided by the college is the Lewis-Clark Center for Arts & History where the permanent “Chinese at the Confluence” exhi-bition is located. The unique exhibit features items from Lewiston’s Beuk Aie Temple. A col-lection of Chinese artifacts from the early days of Lewiston is also featured. Hundreds of Chi-nese immigrants came to the Lewiston area in the 1860s following the discovery of gold in north central Idaho. The center also sponsors contemporary artists with exhibits throughout the year. You can find the center located in downtown Lewiston at 415 Main St. It is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sat-urday. More information is available by calling (208) 792-2243 or going online to www.lcsc.edu/museum.

Heading out of the Lewiston-Clarkston Val-ley in any direction will lead you to adventure.

Traveling north from the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley on U.S. 95/195 requires a trek up the 7 percent grade of the Lewiston Hill but it’s worth the drive.

Just a few miles north of Genesee at U.S. Highway 95 and Borgen Road is where you will fi nd the White Spring Ranch Museum. In 1890, homesteader John Lorang added on to the original ranch building, which dates back to at least 1885, to accommodate his grow-ing family. Lorang used a spring on the farm to build an aqueduct that ran to the barn, the fi elds and a fountain. Today the museum is recognized as a National Historical Site. This archive and living reminder of pioneer life on the Palouse also includes a log cabin from 1876. It’s open from 1-5 p.m. Sundays and by appointment any other time. For more in-formation or to make an appointment call (208) 285-1484 or visit the website at www.WhiteSpringRanch.org.

Driving another 16 miles north on U.S. High-way 95 will bring you to the home of the Van-dals.

The University of Idaho in Moscow was es-tablished as a land-grant institution in 1889 by the Territorial Legislature. The main cam-pus of UI is surrounded by the rolling hills of the Palouse. Part of the benefi t Moscow gets from having this amazing campus as part of the community is the entertainment provided throughout the year at places such as the Hartung Theater. The 417-seat theater fea-tures dramas, comedies and musicals by the university’s theater arts department. For more information, including tickets, call (208) 885-7212.

Another benefi t the university provides the community is the amazing 63-acre arboretum where thousands of named fl owering shrubs, conifers and other trees from around the world are beautifully maintained. The fl owering season lasts from March to August, with fall color peaking in mid-October. The arbo-retum can be found on Nez Perce Drive on the Moscow campus. More information is available by call-ing (208) 885-6633 or by visitingwww.uidaho.edu/arboretum.

Located on Highway 8 in Mos-cow, the Appaloosa Horse Muse-

um features Nez Perce Indian regalia and arti-facts and permanent displays depicting the history of the Appa-loosa horse.

The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Donations are ac-cepted and a gift shop is located inside the museum. More infor-mation is available at (208) 882-5578 ext. 279 or online at www.appaloosa.com.

About 12 miles east of Moscow on Idaho state Highway 8 is the North Fork of the Palouse recreation area. One of the most popular and enjoy-able activities in the Palouse Ranger Dis-trict is watching wild-life in its natural habi-tat. Numerous species can be found in the area including vari-ous small animals and birds, mountain lions, whitetail deer, black bear, mule deer, moose and elk. The Palouse Ranger District can be reached by calling (208) 875-1131.

Visiting Elk River is worth the trip, the scen-

ery on the way there makes it worth it not to mention the jovial atmosphere one encoun-ters once they’ve arrived. Driving east from

Moscow on State Highway 8 leads you across the Palouse and into the timber, through the towns of Troy, Deary, Helmer and Bovill. Once you leave Bovill heading toward Elk River you are on the scenic Elk River Back Country Byway (www.idahoby ways.gov/byways/elk-river.aspx) that ends at Orofino on U.S. Highway 12.

Travelers who continue north out of Moscow on U.S. 95 will want to make a stop in the historic company town of Potlatch. Scenic 6 Park, located in Potlatch, is a great place to visit any time of year and offers both an RV Park and tent camping. For rates and more information on camping at the park call (208) 875-1117.

There is plenty to do in Potlatch with two walking tours for history buffs: “A Walking Tour of the Potlatch Commercial Dis-trict” and “A Walking Tour of Potlatch Neighborhoods.” Pick up your free tour guide document at city hall. These publications are offered by the Potlatch Historical Society.

Back at the U.S. 95/195 split — following the highway on the Washington side (Highway 195 North) promises to provide just as much history and incredible scenery as U.S. 95 does on the Idaho side.

Traveling north on U.S. Highway 195 will take you to Pull-man, home of the Washington State University Cougars. Pull-man can also be reached from Moscow on State Highway 270 (also known as the Pullman-Moscow Highway).

The Bill Chipman Palouse Trail is located between Pullman and Moscow along State Highway 270 and is open dawn to dusk year-round. The seven miles of smooth pathway is for all ages and abilities. Trailheads are located in Pullman on Bish-op Boulevard behind the Quality Inn and in Moscow across from the Palouse Mall.

First opened in the early 1800s as an agricultural college, Washington State University is still well known for its agricul-ture department. The college opened with five teachers to teach 29 students and 63 preparatory students; now it draws an ethnic and culturally diverse student body and offers more than 150 undergraduate majors and 100 master’s and doc-toral degrees. Big-name comedians, rock, jazz, and country western stars and bands can be seen from one of the 12,000 seats at the Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum located on the WSU campus. Ballet and operatic touring companies, sym-phonies and soloists also perform throughout the year. Com-ing performances and more information is available at (509) 335-1514. For tickets call (800) 325-SEAT (7328). One of the most popular spots on campus is the WSU Bear Center, where researchers study grizzlies. There are no formal tours, but the bears are often seen playing, foraging and doing bear stuff within the enclosure.

Leaving Pullman on Highway 195 North takes travelers to Colfax, the county seat for Whitman County.

It’s not a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s movie, “The Birds,” but a murmuration of starlings gather-ing on power lines along U.S. High-way 195 south of Pullman, just in time for Hallow-een.

North Continued from Page 9>

This warm and welcoming town, like many of the towns around it, began as a logging and timber town, and has emerged as a diverse area that is now home to a vast agri-cultural community. The town is rich in history and proud-ly displays that history in ways such as the Codger Pole — called the “Most unusual attraction in Colfax” in Off the Beaten Path, a guide to unique places, the 65-foot chainsaw sculpture commemorates the turning of the tide as it were. The sculpture carved from five red cedar logs captures a grudge match football game played 50 years after the origi-nal game on the same field, by the same players. Rival, St. John, won the original 1938 game but Colfax got the last laugh with a victory at the rematch in 1988. The likenesses of the team members are carved on the poles, occupying a

prominent spot just off of Main Street. The sculpture was carved by artist Jonathan LaBenne of Idyllwild, Calif. Also part of Colfax’s deep history is the Perkins House. Regis-tered as a National Historical Site, this 1886 home built by James A. Perkins is now owned and operated by the Whit-man County Historical Society and is open for tours from 1-4 p.m. Thursdays and Sundays, April through October, or by appointment. It is also available for private use.

Continuing north from Colfax another 60 miles will bring you to Spokane, home of big city entertainment with a small town feel and topped off with amazing outdoor opportuni-ties at every turn. Spokane really can lay claim to having it all with a gorgeous flowing river running right through the heart of the city and cultural diversity matched by no place else in the Inland Northwest, this town is an every man kind of place.

While visiting Spokane there are more than a few must sees, starting with the Northwest Museum of Arts & Cul-ture, a Smithsonian-affiliated museum, which features five exhibition galleries that highlight regional history, the arts and American Indian culture. Tours are available at historic Campbell House, built in 1898. The Museum is located just west of downtown Spokane in the beautiful Browne’s Addi-tion Historic Neighborhood.

And don’t forget to head down to River Front Park nestled in the downtown area next to the mighty Spokane River where you can shop, eat or see an IMAX movie.

Driving east on U.S. Highway 12 from Lewiston, along the Clearwater River offers stellar scenery matched by few.

Leaving Lewiston and heading east on U.S. Highway 12 will bring you to the Idaho

State Highway 3 turnoff, which will take you to the Juliaetta-Kendrick community.

The town of Juliaetta was settled in 1878 and incorporated in 1892. It began as Schupferville, named for homesteader

Rupert Shupfer, but in 1882 the first postmaster. Charles Snyder, renamed it in honor of his two daughters — Julia and Etta. This quiet little town is located next to the Potlatch River on U.S. 12. Centennial Park, a gathering place for locals, boasts one of the best small baseball fields in the state of Idaho. The park is located next to the former rail line, which is now a walking and bicycling trail for the community that connects Juliaetta to its sis-ter town, Kendrick.

Thomas Kirby founded the town of Kendrick in 1889. It was known as Latah or Latah City in 1890 when Northern Pacific Railroad promised to extend its track through town. On the basis of that the name was changed to Kendrick in honor of James P. Kendrick, chief engineer of Northern Pacific. The town was incorporated later that year. This tiny town hit its peak population in 1910 when there were 543 residents. It functions as part of the Juliaetta-Kendrick communi-ty, sharing schools, the Ed Cork-ill Memorial Trail and more.

Back on U.S. Highway 12 heading east you will come

upon the small town of Peck, which is a bedroom community to nearby Orofino.

The almost 200 residents of Peck pri-marily work in Orofino and the school chil-

dren of the town attend classes at Orofino schools. Peck is the last town in Nez Perce County on Highway 12 before entering Clearwater County where Oro-fino is the county seat.

The historic town of Orofino has two pasts — recent history dates back to the gold rush days. The town’s name means “fine ore” in Spanish. But you also find history from the year 1805 when Lewis and Clark came down from the mountains to the east and built canoes, at

what is now known as Canoe Camp, so they could continue their travels down the river to the Pacific Ocean. Pacific Ocean.

Today, Orofino is a bustling town with the motto, “A Reason for Ev-ery Season.” Fishing is always in season, no matter what the weather may be. The town is also home to many hunting outfitters. The average high temperature from September through March is 52 degrees, with December be-ing the coldest month with an ap-proximate high temperature of 37 degrees.

Orofino is a logging town through-and-through and plays host to its annual logging celebra-tion each September (this year’s event is Sept. 16).

The Clearwater Historical Mu-seum focuses on the history of the Clearwater country and features artifacts from the Nez Perce Indians, the Chinese pio-neers, gold mining, logging, early homesteaders and much more. The museum boasts more than 4,500 historical photographs. Hours are 1:30-4:30 p.m. Tues-day-Saturday. More information is available by calling (208) 476-5033 or via email info@clear watermuseum.org.

Orofino has an abundance of places to eat and stay, ranging from the simple to the elegant.

Located on the North Fork of the Clearwater River, near Orofino, Dworshak Dam is the largest straight axis dam in North America. The dam is 717-feet high and 3,000-feet wide. Its reservoir is stocked with kokanee salmon and rainbow trout. The visitors center is located at the top of the dam about 6 miles from Orofino. Guides are on hand to answer questions, and there are several displays and audio-visual programs. There are also natural history, archeological and historical displays. For more information contact the visitors center at (208) 476-1255.

Leaving Orofino, east on U.S. 12, will take you to the town of Kamiah, where The Heart of the Monster can be found. Literally this is the heart

of the Nez Perce Indian’s creation story. The site is also where the non-treaty Nez Perce crossed the Clear-water River during the 1877 war.

Traveling another eight miles on U.S. 12 takes you to Kooskia home of the Kooskia National Fish Hatchery, where they raise spring chinook salmon and trap adult steelhead for the hatchery at Dworshak. Visitors can follow an interpretive trail around the hatchery, which also has a wildlife viewing deck. The hatchery is on Clear Creek Road, two miles west of Kooskia.

Whatever you are looking for in a vacation or a weekend getaway, you’ll fi nd it in towns to the south of Lewiston.

Driving south on U.S. Highway 95 you can stop at the Clearwater River Casino or any number of historical sites before you reach the Nez Perce National Historical Park at Spalding.

The Spalding Visitor Center houses many tribal artifacts such as clothing, head wear, regalia, horse tack, woven bags and intriguing personal items. Historic photographs cover the auditorium walls, where a 23-minute movie, “Nez Perce: Portrait of a People,” is shown. The park, which was established in 1965, grew from 24 sites to 38 in four states in 1992 when Congress expanded it. The Visitor Center can be reached at (208) 843-7001 for more information.

From Spalding, U.S. 95 follows Lapwai Creek through Lapwai, Sweetwater and Culdesac before it begins to climb the Winchester Grade. The grade is a mecca for rail enthu-siasts and owners of railroad speeders, with its 3 percent grade. There are more than 40 wooden trestles, some of them hundreds of feet high, between Spalding and Cotton-wood, most of which are visible from the highway.

Camas Prairie rolls to the horizon. Camas was an im-portant food for the Nez Perce Indians, and in spring its blue flowers give the impression of a huge lake.

The next stop on this journey south is Craigmont, with a population of just more than 500 people, this town is one of the youngest in the region. It is named for Col. William Craig, a mountain man and the first permanent white settler in Lapwai in 1838.

This rural community survives on an agricultural- and tourist-based economy. The town became Craigmont when the towns of Ilo and Vollmer, separated by the Camas Prairie railing, merged to form one community. Craigmont is close to many types of recreation. In a short distance you can be on the shores of two of the best Steelhead and Salmon fishing rivers in the Pacific Northwest. With the Salmon river to the south and the famous Clearwater River to the north, the Prairie that lies between is also home to record-book white tail deer and elk hunting.

This small town doesn’t shutter its doors just be-cause the season has changed, as made evident by the Christmas in the Pines event held in the picturesque setting of this prairie town each November. And who could miss the Breakfast with Santa event held in mid-Decemeber each year, just to name a few of this charming town’s fall and winter offerings. More events can be found on the Greater Craigmont Area Chamber of Commerce’s website, www.craigmontareachamber.com/.

Among the camas is the town of Cottonwood where numerous recreation activities are available.

The world’s largest beagle greets visitors from just off the highway at Dog Bark Park. Sweet Willy Colton, the 30-foot-tall beagle, has been featured on cnn.com, among other places, and is a bed and breakfast that sleeps six. Willy, Toby and a menagerie of critters are on display, all carved by chain saw artists Dennis J. Sul-livan and Frances Conklin, (208) 962-DOGS (3647).

Visitors to Cottonwood don’t want to miss the mu-seum at the Monastery at St. Gertrude. The Monastery is home to several Roman Catholic Benedictine sisters. The museum has a unique collection of more than 70,000 artifacts, with 12,000 on display at any one time, which reflect the early history of north central Idaho. Visi-tors will rediscover the pioneer days of the Camas Prairie through exhibits relating to the early mining and farming era, plus a var-ied collection of minerals, firearms, Nez Perce artifacts, religious items and other objects connected to local history. The Rhoades Emmanuel Memorial, an extraordinary collection of fine Asian and European art pieces, is another significant exhibit located here. The original monastery building is listed on the National Historic Register. The Monastery can be reached at (208) 962-2050. Information is also available at www.historicalmusemat stgertrude.org.

Drive another 20 minutes south on U.S. 95 and you will find the only town in Idaho with a mammoth in its park.

Grangeville is located in the southern section of the Camas Prairie where Columbian mammoths made their home 11,000 years ago. The Mammoth House in Grangeville holds the skeleton of one that was excavated at nearby Tolo Lake.

Grangeville has more going for it, too. It is the home of the famous Ray Holes Saddle Shop, the oldest saddle shop in Idaho,

and a U.S. Forest Service smokejumper base. Both are open to visitors; the saddle shop is located at 213 W. Main St., and the base can be contacted at (208) 983-1964.

We suggest your first stop heading west on U.S. Highway 12, out of Clarkston, be made in the historic farm town of Pome-roy.

Named for Joseph M. Pomeroy, a rancher who purchased land in 1864 and platted the town site in 1878. Among the area’s first visitors though were Lewis and Clark in 1805, and Capt. Bonneville in 1834. Visiting Pomeroy, the Garfield County seat, is like visiting another era, with its Victorian homes and turn-of-the-century renovated courthouse. There is not one stoplight in town, but visitors find many reasons to stop, nonetheless. For a list of facts about the town, businesses and events visit www.pomeroychamberof commerce.com.

Continuing west on U.S. 12, between Pomeroy and Dayton, there is a short detour worth taking. Turning north onto State Route 261 leads to one of the most

impressive and least known examples of modern geology. The Palouse River follows a course scoured out by a flood 12,000 years ago, when a 2,000-foot tall ice dam broke in western Montana, what is now the Missoula Valley. Palouse Falls plunges 200 feet into the pool below. The 105-acre state park offers camping and a view of the awe-striking waterfall.

Heading back to the highway, your trav-els west will lead you to the superlative small-town America — Dayton, Wash.

With a population of just more than 2,500 people according to the 2010 U.S. Census, it is known for fine dining and his-toric buildings. The Lewis and Clark Expe-dition camped near present-day Dayton in 1806 on their way back to St. Louis. Less than 80 years later, Jacob Weinhardt es-tablished a brewery, along with several other businesses. The area flourished, and the fine homes the businessmen

built for their families encom-pass styles from Queen Anne to Craftsman — 90 of the homes are on the National Register of Historic Places. The Dayton Depot is the oldest surviving train depot in Washington. It was built in 1881 and has been beautifully restored to be a mu-seum. Revolving exhibits are featured in the upstairs gallery. The depot museum is located at 222 E. Commercial St. Visit the museum website at www.daytonhistoricdepot.org.

After leaving Dayton, on U.S. Highway 12, heading west about 35 miles brings you to Walla Walla. Well known for its up-and-coming wineries, the area has seen its tourism grow from those seeking a taste of Washington-grown grapes. Some experts credit the mas-sive floods that roared through the area during the ice age with laying down the perfect soil for grapes. Whatever the rea-son, Walla Walla is home to 100 winer-ies, many of which offer tours, some are even known for being dog friendly. To learn more about this area visit www.winesnw.com/walla.html.

Walla Walla is also justly famous for its Sweet Onions, which became Washing-ton’s official state vegetable in 2007.

The Downtown Walla Walla Walking Tour is a great way to sample the area’s historic architecture and history.

Fort Walla Walla Museum is located within the one-square-mile military res-ervation that served as Fort Walla Walla from the 1850s to the early 1900s. It fea-tures a pioneer settlement complete with original buildings including a cabin built by Ransom Clark in the 1850s, the Union School built in 1867, a jail from Prescott,

Wash., a barbershop, a railroad depot from Eureka Flats and many other buildings. There are also five spacious exhibit halls filled with hundreds of exhibits featuring horse-era agriculture, pioneer life and mil-itary history. Time magazine rated Fort Walla Walla Mu-seum as one of 11 notable sites in the nation to experience the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and the National Park Ser-vice added its recog-nition in 2005. Fort Walla Walla Muse-um offers programs, special events, kids

camps and tours for schools or other groups. Open daily, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., April through October. The museum is located at 755 Myra Road. Call (509) 525-7703 or visit www.fort wallawallamuseum.org for more information.
