Welcome , folks!

My name is Gordon, and it’s my pleasure to be your guide on this journey. Why me? Well, I’m the official unofficial spokesman of Klickitat County who knows this area like the back of my – well, foot. Yes, my feet are really big, but I still prefer my own name over what people around here call me. There are more Bigfoot sightings in Klickitat County than anywhere else in the U.S.—I know this statistic well because I just made it up, but it probably is true. This county is one of the most beautiful, not just in this country, but the world. My snowy kin from as far away as the Himalayas have told me so. Growing up here, I can tell you this 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 won’t let me in). Prefer water? We’ve got fabulous fishing, thrilling white water rafting, kayaking - 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 some of the riders, too. 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 award-winning Maryhill Winery with its weekend music on the ter-

race. 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 observe the cosmic gallery from one of the really powerful telescopes. And we’ve got our very own fullscale 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

Gordon is a great spokesman, but we’d like to take a moment to

extend our personal thanks to you, our readers, for picking up this visitors’ guide—and as well to all the amazing people who make all the wonderful events in Klickitat County work so well for so many. Places are special, of course, but people are even more special, and this county is filled with fantastic folks who know how to make visitors feel right at home. We also value your feedback. Over the last several years, you’ve indicated Journey really works for you. It’s the most popular and most widely distributed locally produced publication here, and we’re very gratified it’s so popular. We welcome you to let us know what you really like within these pages and what we can do to make this publication even more useful to you in the future. In the meantime, have a great trip!

Our journey begins!

Pinchot Gifford orest lF Nationa

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

Goldendale’s Day in the Sun - Not! Lou _____ Marzeles Editor On June 8, 1918, The Goldendale Sentinel—then already 40 years old—published a story that would go on to tease the imagination of many for years to come. It originated the fabled tale—sadly, not at all true—that Albert Einstein himself came to Goldendale to participate in an experiment designed to prove his Theory of Relativity, published just three years earlier. The fact is that an experiment such as this was indeed planned for Goldendale for this very purpose. But Einstein never set foot in this golden dale where the 1918 total solar eclipse took place, along the path of the eclipse that stretched from sea to sea that year. In fact, Goldendale was on the path of two total solar eclipses in the 20th century and in the 98 percent path of a third solar eclipse in 2017. Here is what The Sentinel published in 1918, just over a century ago: “The eyes of the entire world were focused on the little town of Goldendale. This occurred on June 8, 1918, while the big guns in the great World War were creating their most deadly holocaust. It was when a 70-mile path of totality in an eclipse of the sun extended across the United States from Seattle to Tampa. Goldendale

THE GOLDENDALE SENTINEL EDITION JUNE 8, 1918 happened to be situated almost in the center and was chosen by Dr. William Wallace Campbell as a location for the Lick Observatory field station – University of California. “When Dr. Campbell announced time of first contact,

a Goldendale reporter named Robert Ballou mounted the rear saddle seat of a big motorcycle owned and driven by Ted Gillenwaters. At the railroad

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!

ECLIPSES from page 5 depot Western Union office, he handed ‘Red’ Miles, a crack telegraph operator, a slip which said; ‘2:41,’ indicating the time of first contact with the eclipse. The wire to Portland was open. Just as soon as the numbers were clicked, a message started around the world to announce the eclipse was on at Goldendale, in the State of Washington, U.S.A.” Campbell wrote of his experience in Goldendale in The New York Times on June 9, saying that concern persisted for some time about clouds in the area the day of the eclipse. “The prospects for a clear sky were apparently hopeless during the long hours of waiting, almost up to the time of total-

ity,” he wrote. Then, about a minute before the moon passed in front of the sun, the clouds cleared just enough for them to view the spectacle. Everything went dark. “The reading of newspaper print would have been difficult under the open sky,” Campbell continued. “The chickens retired as if for the night. They were heard to give the morning cock crows before emerging a few minutes later. It was probably the shortest night in all their lives.” The Sentinel article picked up more of the story in its issue on June 13, 1918, a few days after the eclipse: “The people of Klickitat County saw the eclipse in all its grandeur,” Ballou wrote in his article, “at

One second after the first contact was announced, I was at the telephone in the Lick Station giving the Western Union press operator the time of the first contact to be inserted in an advance bulletin for the Associated Press, and the news was flashed all over the world that the eclipse was on at Goldendale… I shall make as the main point of my story the prominence that Goldendale obtained by being almost in the center of the 70-mile path of the shadow of the moon and the fact that Goldendale was selected in advance by some of the leading astronomers of the world as a vantage point.” Elsewhere in the same issue, The Sentinel continued: “For the most part, the local people of Klickitat County sought the high points surrounding the valley for observation points, and about 30 Model Ts made the climb to the summit of the high buttes on the outskirts of Goldendale,” the newspaper recounted. “It is estimated the event brought an extra 4,000 people to Goldendale.” What the article did not include was the fact that Dr. Campbell had hoped to take astronomical measurements during the eclipse that would

In 1805 the Lewis and Clark Expedition recorded seeing Mt. Adams. They misidentified it as Mt. St. Helens, which had been previously discovered and named. This is the earliest recorded sighting of the volcano by European explorers. Between 1830 and 1834 Hall J. Kelley led a campaign to rename the Cascade Range as the President's Range and also to rename each major Cascade mountain after a former President of the United States. Mt. Adams was not known to Kelley and was thus not in his plan. Mt. Hood, in fact, was designated by Kelley to be renamed after President John Adams but a mistake by a mapmaker placed the Mt. Adams name north of Mt. Hood and about 40 miles (64 km) east of Mt. St. Helens. By sheer coincidence there was in fact a large mountain there to receive the moniker. Since the mountain had no official name at the time, Mt. Adams stuck, even though the rest of Kelley’s plan failed.

What a treat when the Lupin e & Balsam root are in bloom !

Hikers, bikers, painters, photographers, and Sunday drivers love Dalles Mountain Road for its exquisite, year-round beauty. This spectacular drive runs right through Columbia Hills State Park; so if you’ve gone to the park first, just keep heading east on this sometimes bumpy gravel road. If you’re on Hwy 14, you’ll find Dalles Mountain Road at about milepost 84.5. Turn north and enjoy! On a clear day at the top, there’s a great vista of Mt Adams, Mt Rainier and the Cascade Range.

A World of Wine in 40 Miles

... is how the Columbia Gorge Wine Region is affectionately known due to it’s unique topography and climatic changes. In this 40 mile stretch encompassing both sides of the Columbia River in Oregon and Washington, an extraordinary combination of climates, soils, elevation and geology combine to produce some of the best and most varied grape varietals in the Pacific Northwest. A great transition occurs between the alpine forests of Underwood Mountain to the deserts of our eastern side, and our latitudes are shared with some of the finest wine growing regions of Europe, including Bordeaux, Rhone Valley and Italy. The Columbia Gorge is part of two American Viticultural Areas (AVA), including the western edge of the Columbia Valley AVA and encompassing all of the Columbia Gorge AVA, which was established in 2004. In our region, the Cascade Mountain range restricts the grand Columbia River into a narrow passage. This mountain range runs north into British Columbia, and south to California, creating a drastic climate difference as rains and clouds from the Pacific move inland and get hung up on the mountains. Hence, the areas on our western border see much more rain than the deserts of our eastern border, with rainfall diminishing more than one inch per mile moving East. Soils deposited from ice age floods and volcanic eruptions define the geology. The river canyon acts as a corridor for cool marine winds, which is why the Columbia Gorge is known worldwide as a premier windsurfing and kiting playground. And our two crowning beauties, Mt Hood and Mt Adams, create vertical elevations that allow for a huge range of grapes to be grown with success. Long famous for its fine pears, apples, cherries and other fruits, it wasn’t until the 1970’s that residents started experimenting with grapes. The vines prospered, and soon folks began to recognize the Gorge as a viticultural gem. Currently, over 70% of Gorge grown grapes are exported to other wine regions such as the Willamette Valley and Walla Walla, but plenty are crushed here in the Gorge at local wineries the day they are picked. From Albariño to Zinfandel, the Columbia Gorge really is a World of Wine in 40 Miles!

ECLIPSES from page 18

prove Einstein’s theory. But some of his equipment showed up late, and the weather, while mostly clear, had just enough cloud cover to obfuscate Campbell’s view. He sadly reported to Einstein, who was waiting anxiously for word from Goldendale, that his attempt to prove Relativity had failed. It would be another four years before Campbell, now having trekked to a remote region of western Austalia, would indeed demonstrate that Einstein’s famed theory was accurate during the total solar eclipse of 1922. But 1918 was not the only big year for solar eclipses in Goldendale. The town was again right smack in the middle of a

path of totality during the eclipse of 1979. This time things were different. Goldendale was besieged not only by astronomers and tourists but also by a horde of pagans who made almost as much news as the eclipse. In June 1918 Goldendale didn’t have Stonehenge. The Stonehenge Memorial actually was just being finished during 1918. The building, built by wealthy magnate Sam Hill, was designed to be a war memorial commemorating the fallen military personnel of Klickitat County killed during the Great War. It is an exact replica of the original Stonehenge in England but in some regards even better—it was built to show the original in its

pristine state before centuries moved and toppled some of the great stones. Scientists come to Goldendale’s Stonehenge to study what the original must have looked like. Because of its association with the Stonehenge in England, the counterculture youth of 1979 saw the Goldendale structure as having to do with Druids—so a large contingent of hippie-ish young people descended on the place celebrating what they took to be the pagan prominence of Druids. They sold pagan odds and ends, with one entrepreneurial kid selling “Canned Dark”— actual cans purporting to contain some of the “dark” that engulfed Goldendale during the eclipse that year. They sold for a buck a can, roughly about $3.50 in today’s money. Perhaps he went on to invent the Pet Rock…

This amazing, full size replica of the original neolithic struc ture in England was designed and built by Sam Hill in 1918 in honor of and dedicated to the WWI servicemen of Klickitat Coun ty who died, many in their teens, in the service of our coun try during the Great War. As 2018 was the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, each of these 18 servicemen were honored on the day of each of their young deaths. Details are available at: Aptly overlooking the magnificent Columbia River Gorg e, Stonehenge is a monument to heroism and peace. Sam is buried here, too.

Take the High (and loopy) Road Maryhill Museum of Art founder Sam Hill was one of the Northwest’s first and most vocal advocates for modern roads. He was president of the Washington State Good Roads Association and spent much of his life championing the importance of highways in the Northwest. In 1913 Sam Hill convinced the Oregon governor and legislature to visit Maryhill and see the 10 miles of demonstration roads he had constructed over the prior four years, at his own expense, as a way to experiment with road building techniques and surfaces.

14, the historic Maryhill Loops Road was the first macadam asphalt-paved road in the Pacific Northwest. Prior to the construction of US 97, it served as the only road between the Columbia River and Goldendale, Washington. Historically, it was part of a larger road that encompassed several miles, over which seven different experimental roads were constructed. It rises 850 feet in a series of 25 curves, eight of them hairpin turns, at a grade of 5 percent. In 1998, a 3.6-mile section of the road was completely refurbished and received the Outstanding Project of Historical Significance Award from the American Public Works Association, Washington State Chapter. —Maryhill Museum of Art

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,” Bickleton 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, operated by the Alder Creek Pioneer Association (ad on facing page). It has a new 4,200 SF addition and features 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 don’t miss the amazing rodeo June 7-9, 2019. It’s the oldest rodeo in the state and draws quite a crowd! See their ad, pg. 44. Lastly (while we’re on oldest), Bickleton is also home to the oldest continuously operating tavern in Washington, the Bickleton Bluebird Inn. See their ad pg. 63.
