Welcome, folks!

Klickitat County doesn’t have an official spokesperson, but if it did, I’d be him. Call me Gordon. Yes, my feet really are big, but I still prefer my own name over the one people usually call me. There are more BigFoot sightings in Klickitat County than anywhere else in the continental U.S.—I know this statistic well because I just made it up, but it probably is true. This county is a great place to explore; I know, having grown up here. The whole county is one long, fantastic adventure with no shortage of outdoor activities in splendorous surroundings. Go camping in the forest, visit the Trout Lake Ice Caves, pick huckleberries, go hiking, or sample our many wineries (please bring some wine back for me; they

We begin our journey here… won’t let me in). Prefer water? We’ve got fabulous fishing, thrilling white water rafting, kayaking, and we’re known as one of the wind surfing capitals of the world. And if you like events, there are fairs and rodeos galore in warm weather from one end of the county to the other. I can’t go to the rodeos, though; I spook the horses and some of the riders. If all that weren’t enough, we’re also home to the world-renowned Maryhill Museum (they’ve got original Rodin sculpture there, among other things—and you thought I had no culture). There’s also the awardwinning Maryhill Winery with its amazing summer concert series. We’ve got so many other wonderful wineries, we had to devote a whole directory to them!


There’s also the astronomically exceptional (and famous) Goldendale Observatory where you can watch this summer’s almost-total solar eclipse. And we’ve got our very own full-scale Stonehenge, so true to life scholars come here to see what the original was like. I can’t do justice to all we have to offer with these few introductory words, so, instead, please join me on a phenomenal Journey through Klickitat County, full of photographic wonders in the following pages. Stuff this guide in your pocket. It’s meant to be field-ready, not just another pretty magazine. Enjoy! Gordon Wilkins (aka BigFoot ) Klickitat County Resident

Mt Adams

Gifford Pinchot National Forest time back!


We’re starting our adventure at the western edge of Klickitat County in Gifford Pinchot National Forest, near Trout Lake. It encompasses 1,368,300 acres including Mt. Adams’ wonderful wilderness. There’s something for everyone here breakfast over the fire*, Ice Caves, Natural Bridges, and the Upper/Middle/Lower Lewis River Falls. Get directions to all these from the Trout Lake Ranger (509-395-3400). You’ll be delighted to find magnificent Mt. Adams watching over most of our journey through the county. Second only to Mt. Shasta, it’s the largest (not tallest) mountain in mass and area on the entire west coast of the U.S. So because we’re so close to it here, it looms in splendor. Visit, and look under “National Forests.”

Natural Bridges

Ice Caves

The spectacular geography of Gifford is largely influenced by Mt. Adams. During its volcanic heyday, lava ran freely from this monumental mount. As it dried, lava tubes were form ed. Some collapsed to create amazing ice caves. Others form ed arched, natural bridges whole families can wal k over. Visiting these, we’ll experience both ends of the temperature spectrum, so dress in layers! On our ice capade, we’ll need sturdy well -treaded shoes because the cave’s floor is mighty slick! And be sure everyone has their own flashligh t, ‘cause it’s dark! Heck, just read the caut ion sign below! Trails run across the top of both the cave s and the bridges. The Trout Lake Ranger Station on 141 (509-395-3400) can direct you to both. Just be sure to watch below for any lurking troll s!

We ll, Native Americans in our area have some very cool ones about what they call the three "smoking mo untains" (Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, and Mt. St. Helens) that guard the Col umbia River. The Bridge of the God s tale has it that Wy'east (Mt. Hoo d) and Pahto (Mt. Adams; also called Pad do or Klickitat by native people s) were the sons of the Great Spirit. These two mountainous brothe rs competed for the love of the bea utiful La-wa-la-clough (Mt. St. Hel ens). When La-wa-la-clough chose Pah to (Mt. Adams), Wy'east (Mt. Hoo d) struck his brother hard enough to flatten his head before stealing Lawa-la-clough from him. In other versions of the tale, losing La-walaclough caused Pahto such grief, he dropped his head in shame.

...or is it “legend”? An d if not, just how man y of these elusive and supposedly in telligent creatures wi th human-like faces are there? The Bigfoot figure is co mmon to the folklore of most Northwest Native American tribes. Native America n Bi gfoot legends usually describe the creatures as arou nd 6-9 feet tall, very strong, hairy, un civilized, and often fo ul-smelling, usually living in the woods an d often foraging at nigh t. Native American Bigfoot creatures are almost always said to be unable to speak human languag es, using whistles, grun ts, and gestures to communicate with each other. In some sto ries, male Bigfeet are said to be able to mate with human wo m en . In some Native stories, Bigfoot m ay have minor supern atural powers-the ability to turn invi sible, for example-- bu t they are always considered physical cr eatures of the forest, not spirits or ghosts. (See native-lan igfoot.htm for more info.) Fact or fiction? Find ou t for yourself. But don’t wander too far!

Johnson The Valley of the Little Klickitat, being one of the paths less-traveled in Klickitat County, invokes a sense of wonder in almost everyone who experiences it for the first time. That’s been true for more than 150 years when Oregon Trail pioneers were crossing the Columbia River from The Dalles by the thousands to come north. Back then, the only humans in the Valley were roving bands of Native Americans who found the Valley a rich source of resources that fully sustained and supported their nomadic lifestyles. That the first pioneer settlers wouldn’t arrive until 1858, nearly two decades after the Oregon Trail migra-

tion began, speaks to a place that went largely unexplored by settlers seeking homesteads in the West. Wagon trains first made their appearance in The Dalles in 1843; but the first recorded activity in the Valley of the Little Klickitat, other than fur trading, was that of legendary cattleman Ben Snipes in 1855. At 21, entrepreneurial Snipes secured financing for a herd of cattle. Through a Native American friend, he then discovered the Valley of the Little Klickitat, where he moved his herd. It wasn’t until 1859 that settlers began filing for homesteads in the region – but it was Snipes’ cattle, grazing in the

swales of the valley, that put a stamp on the region that -persists to this day. Today, every spring, an important and revered tradition occurs in the valley called “working the cattle.” When the snows melt off the Simcoe Mountains (just north of Goldendale), ranchers, who’ve spent the winter hauling hay to their herds in the valley, drive this cattle to the mountain pastures. Before they’re turned out, branding, shots, ear tags, and other important work must be completed. These activities allow families, friends and acquaintances to gather together for work, food, fun, and festivity. Before hunting season begins in the fall, the cattle are again rounded up and driven back to the winter feeding grounds. It’s another chance to witness the cattle drive. This is one of the few places in the West where one can still say, “I was held up by a cattle drive.” If you’re lucky enough to encounter one, smile and wave. The cowboys and cowgirls will return the wave, making you part of a century-long tradition. - Jim Link

Solar Eclipse of the century*

(*when an entire continent will witness the shadow of the moon as it blocks the sun)

Monday, August 21, 2017

Eye protection is essential!

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime astronomical phenomenon! The last total solar eclipse visible in any part of the continential U.S. was on February 26 1979; but this clipped only a few northwestern states, most of which were under cloud cover, so for most it passed unseen.The last total solar eclipse to traverse the entire country, as will this one, was June 8, 1918.

In Goldendale we will see a PARTIAL solar eclipse, starting at 9:08 PDT, reaching 97% coverage at 10:21 PDT, and ending at 11:41 PDT • Goldendale

The path of totality - we’ll see it as a 97% partial eclipse

Goldendale became host to the only hanging ever to occur in Klickitat County on April 6, 1888. Conv icted murderer Henry Timmerman faced his doom whil e straddling his coffin, smoking a cigar and downing a quart of whiskey. Local legend has it that standing on the gallows waiting for the noose to be fitted, he decla red his innocence for the final time and told the crowd if they proceeded with the hanging, within three months, the town would burn to the ground, and he would rise from the grave to kill everyone responsible for his wron gful execution. On May 13, 1888, 27 days after Timmerman’s hang ing, a fire did indeed break out in downtown Goldenda le, burning its seven main blocks to the ground. Timm erman’s grave was also found open and empty! His remains were later recovered and reburied in an unmarke d grave, and the rest of the curse was left unfulfilled. Perh aps reburying him satisfied his restless soul. Stop by Presby Mansion to learn about other fasci nating local legends.

Brooks Memorial State Park

St. John’s Greek Coffee Shop is about 10 miles north of Goldendale on the east side of 97. Here you’ll find yummy, homemade sweet and savory Greek delicacies. A bit further north on the west side of 97 is Brooks Memorial State Park, a 700-acre, year-round camping park. It has over 9 miles of hiking trails along the Little Klickitat River and up through the Ponderosa and Oregon Pine forests. At the top are open mountain meadows with a panoramic view of Mt Hood. Visitors may see deer, beaver dams, squirrels, spring wildflowers, and a variety of birds. Brooks is a Washington State Park, so a Discover Pass is required unless it’s a Free Day*. *Find “Free Days” at

Carousel Museum

Bickleton is about an hour east of Goldendale on Bickleton Hwy - and what a scenic drive that is! Known as the “Bluebird Capital of the World”, residents work year-round to keep the little houses maintained and ready for the next generation of Bluebirds. You’ll see these lovely little feathered friends throughout the eastern part of Klickitat County. Another must-see is Bickleton’s Carousel Museum in downtown Bickleton and operated by the Alder Creek Pioneer Association (ad below). Interesting collections, such as woven wheat and barbed wire, antique lunch boxes, and, of course, the restored carousel horses. The Annual Bickleton Car Show on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend features classic and modern cars and is a great place to meet other motor vehicle enthusiasts. And if you’re in town for the rodeo (next page), you’ll be amazed. This is the oldest rodeo in the state of Washington and draws quite a crowd!
