Sometimes it is handy hearing a few stories from someone who has been there, done that. Adventures does just that—recounts favorite weekend memories and suggests other stuff to do in the area like where to find the nearest coffee shop (the important stuff). To highlight our natural history, we’ll interview the experts and let you know where you can connect with that history on the land. Adventures is also a great place to share tips on wilderness safety, dive into regulations and why they are important to follow, and pass along new information or books written about our one-of-a-kind area.

By deepening our understanding of the land, we all certainly appreciate it even more. If you are curious about something you observe on the trail or have an idea you’d like us to investigate, please contact us. We would love to share what we find out with our Outside Walla Walla community. As we are discovering, there are countless ways to recreate in our area, and when we exhaust all the possibilities look forward to starting all over again.
