I most recently went on a crazy road trip across five states. I started in Washington, went through Oregon, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming. Most of that drive on Interstate 84 is nothing but desert. Crazy boring desert. There is also a lot to see -- even in the desert -- but, sometimes when you get a little drowsy from driving and seeing the exact same sagebrush for 700 miles.
That's when you have to stop at a rest area. They are all there to give you a little respite, but some of them are much nicer than others.
Relay For Life at West Valley High School was a huge success on Saturday (June 24). People came out in droves with the spirit of celebrating life and honoring those we have lost to the battle of cancer. It isn't easy losing someone to such a thing.
Yakima Uncorked was all we had hoped for Saturday (June 24). It was a fantastic-good time. Hundreds and hundreds of people showed up for what could be the biggest party of the year. Food, beer and wine vendors were so busy it was hard to keep up. But by the looks of everyone's faces, they did it.
Living in a desert setting, it's easy to forget there is such deep forest beauty just 20 minutes from us. But State Rout 410 between Naches and Whistlin' Jack Lodge is absolutely breathtaking. It truly is Mother Nature's gift to us. There are so many sights to see. I remember the first time I drove toward Chinook Pass I passed by a camping resort. I saw a bear chasing a guy up a tree.
Downtown Summer Nights was, naturally, a hit this week (June 22). What a blast! We had so many people there it was incredible! And every direction I turned, there was someone with a Seahawks jersey, T-shirt or even shoes. Seahawk fans are everywhere, even in the middle of the summer at Downtown Summer Nights.
But when someone paints a $45,000 truck with everything Seahawks-related, it takes pride to a whole new level.
Yakima's Relay for Life is this Saturday at West Valley High School -- and what an amazing cause. The fight for cancer is no joke. You don't have to sign up early. You can go on Saturday and join in on the fight for cancer and celebrate the survivors who are already beating it.
I as driving home pretty late Thursday night after an amazing Downtown Summer Nights. I stopped by the AM/PM (since it is the only thing open that late) to get some Cheetos. I went in the parking lot right by Joel's Tires and I saw this wheelchair.
