That last RV park was something. We have stayed at a lot of RV parks over the years and this one ranks right up there with the worst. You know, I don't normally bad mouth anyone on here, but if you are ever in Yakima with an RV, do NOT stay Trailer's Inn on 1st Street. For those of you on my Facebook, remember tazer penis? He was found OD'ing against the fence of the RV park and two days later was back for a tazered penis. All of this happened in the vicinity of the RV park. Each cop, paramedic or ER nurse that heard where we were staying stopped and gave me that look like I just told them I had a vial of ebola in my pocket.
And that is just the neighborhood around the place. I won't carry on though. I will save the full rant for my review on the RV park review website we use.
Instead, how about a quick trip through a few things that happened while we were away.
Yakima is different. Way different than the west side of the Cascades. It is dry, hot and brown. What little green remains is clustered around the rivers that join together and cascade down through the valley.
There is industrial agriculture everywhere.
None of this is what we came to Washington for, so we headed back as soon as we could. We headed up the road toward Rainier and found a little pretty.

|Neat bridge going over the road.|
|Michael just heard me say we were going to hike the trail.|
|Crazy to think that trail leads all the way to Mexico.|
|And the river moves fast.|
|Not sure what the difference between a box canyon and slot canyon is.|
|The pictures are cool though.|
