Welcome

Welcome to the Northshore of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Our communities overlook the Columbia River Gorge with spectacular views of beautiful Mt. Hood and majestic Mt. Adams. Thanks to Sam Hill, the famous road builder and founder of Maryhill Museum, the incredible and diverse climate of Klickitat County is often described aptly as “The Land Where the Sun Meets the Rain”, due to its location in a transition zone between west and east Gorge. The marine-influenced climate west of the Cascades and the dry continental climate of the inter-mountain region collide at the White Salmon River junction with the Columbia River, leading to times of sunshine between clouds, or wild storms and rainbows. Spectacular rivers and summer winds that funnel through the Gorge make this area a wind and water sport Mecca of international renown.

The surrounding evergreen forests and oak woodlands are perfect settings for all manner of wildlife and year-

round recreational opportunities including hiking, biking, skiing, bird watching, fishing, hunting, just about anything active people enjoy. The abundance of farm fresh foods, foragers and hunters provides our culinary artists delightful inspiration for your meals. Wash it down with a local kombucha, a cold brew, award winning wine or other beverage of choice. The bountiful forest lands, farms and orchards are the backbone of industries that the area was founded upon, while new technology and fermentation industries are rapidly expanding and opening up new employment and investment opportunities. Our developing Gorge Food Trail creates farm to fork experiences from one community to the next. This area has developed into an unmanned aerial vehicle nexus, and its proximity to the Columbia River transportation corridor offers unique opportunities for traditional and progressive industrial development. There is also access to nearby barge, train, air transport and interstate highways – all leading to Pacific Rim ports and other major transportation arteries.

Let us share our knowledge and resources with you to enhance your experience here.

COMMUNITY OVERVIEW

Within Klickitat County, communities stretch from Bingen and White Salmon at the west end waterfront, up north to Trout Lake and Glenwood at the base of Mt. Adams, and east to Lyle, Goldendale and Maryhill in the heart of the vineyard country. Across the river to the south, several communities such as Cascade Locks, Hood River, and The Dalles lie a short distance from us on the Oregon side of the river. It is not uncommon for residents to find themselves working, eating, and playing on both sides of the Washington and Oregon border, which is the middle of the Columbia River.

BINGEN

Bingen was founded by P.J. Suksdorf in 1892, and named by him for Bingen am Rhein in Germany. Bingen

was officially incorporated on April 18, 1924. The name of the town is pronounced (BIN-jen), despite the fact that its German namesake is pronounced (BING-en). The city has grown considerably over the past decade but been able to retain its small town vibe where everyone comes out on summer nights to watch movies in the park together or pitches in to put on the annual Huckleberry Festival in September. Stay at the Society Hotel for a vintage experience. No matter which local happy hour you choose, your friends will be there. Walk alongside the river at the Port Marina park and look for hang gliders coming off the hills.

WHITE SALMON

White Salmon sits 550 feet on a bluff above the Columbia River with stellar views of Mt Hood, Burdoin Mountain, and the Columbia River.  Downtown

White Salmon is fast becoming a well-known foodie destination and an ideal basecamp for whitewater rafters and kayakers, mountain bikers, hikers, surfers, skiers, and anyone who loves good food, beer, and wine.  Take in the public murals, art installations, and ever-changing views as you dine al fresco and plan your next adventure.  The options are endless: White Salmon is surrounded by wineries and the White Salmon River, Gifford Pinchot National Forest,  Mount Adams,  Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, including the Coyote Wall Recreation Area where bikers, hikers, and riders can access a 30+ mile network of trails with open breath-taking views.

BZ CORNER

BZ Corner is small community at the intersection of the BZ Glenwood Hwy and SR 141. Head towards Glenwood or Trout Lake from here.

A recreation access point to the White Salmon River with several rafting companies based here. Zoller’s Outdoor Odysseys have been in business there for 47 years.

HUSUM

Husum is home to many local whitewater rafting companies and you will find several delightful bed and breakfast options here. Visit the historic Ice House Wine Bar at the RubyJune Inn. With good viewpoints from the bridge, you will find Husum Falls, a vertical 10-foot (3.0 m) Class V waterfall in the White Salmon River, is a fantastic photo opportunity year round. Book a guided trip (you can portage the falls!) and enjoy spectacular and awe-inspiring beauty along the water route.

TROUT LAKE

Trout Lake is notable for its organic dairy and herb farms, as well as being an access point to Mt. Adams Wilderness areas and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. The dark skies of this area allow frequent viewing of the aurora borealis and expansive fields of stars. Visit the Trout Lake Abbey where you can attend classes, stay overnight or just walk the serene property. The Mt. Adams area is administered by the Mt. Adams Ranger District. This area is located in the eastern portions of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and compromises 367,000 acres. It includes Mt. Adams Wilderness, Indian Heaven Wilderness and Trapper Creek Wilderness.

GLENWOOD

Glenwood is a ranching community which hosts a National Pro Rodeo Association sanctioned rodeo annually on Father’s day weekend in their arena nestled in the valley below the Mt. Adams Wilderness. This two day event has a popular cowboy breakfast, Saturday night dance and parade through town. The Conboy Lake Wildlife Refuge is home to a large herd of roaming elk and many other animals, as well as the Whitcomb-Cole Hewn Log House that you can walk to. Have lunch or dinner at the Glenwood General Store.

KLICKITAT

The area surrounding the town of Klickitat and the river which shares its name is renowned for its seasonal hunting and fishing. During summer months popular activities on the Klickitat River include recreational drift boating, kayaking, and rafting. Paths and trails provide opportunities for scenic hikes. The 31 mile long Klickitat Trail is on the route of the former railroad tracks, later turned into a biking and hiking trail. The trail follows the Klickitat River north from the Columbia River past the town of Klickitat. Washington State Route 142 provides a scenic drive through the canyon.

LYLE

There are several reasons to visit Lyle: the cluster of winery tasting rooms, the hiking/biking trails, a historic hotel, the bald eagles and other raptors, the Wild & Scenic Klickitat River, salmon fishing, and water sports just to name a few! Established around 1859, the community was originally called “Klickitat Landing”. Although tiny, somewhat rustic, and usually quiet, Lyle has attracted some attention because it lies very near several popular windsurfing beaches, including Doug’s Beach. The area is also home to six boutique wineries: Cor Cellars, Domaine Pouillon, Jacob Williams Winery, Klickitat Canyon Winery, Tetrahedron, and Syncline.

GOLDENDALE/MARYHILL

Located on the dry side of the Gorge, with expansive farms and wheat fields, vineyards, timberland, and magnificent Mount Adams as a backdrop, the rural community is a city and county seat of Klickitat County, Goldendale is a popular destination of car clubs and has many events throughout the year. Home to world famous Goldendale Observatory State Park, the Presby Museum, and the annual Klickitat County Fair & Rodeo. South of town is Maryhill Museum, Maryhill Loops Road and Klickitat County’s Stonehenge Memorial, just off Hwy 14.

There’s no good record of precisely which peoples first came to live in the Columbia River Gorge.  Most archaeological evidence along the river dates no further than the end of the latest Ice Age, but the ice age concluded with dramatic floods that would have swept away any earlier traces.  Tantalizing glimpses of early habitation - an ancient hearth, for instance - were discovered during construction of The Dalles Dam, and farther upstream near the mouth of the John Day River, buried under gravel deposits laid down by those floods.  The last glacial flood came through about 12,800 years

Surrounded

ago, so the buried hearth proves people have been here at least that long.  But just who they were, how they came to be here and what became of them is lost to prehistory. Much better documented are the people who later witnessed the arrival of the Lewis & Clark expedition.  These comprised many different cultures, speaking different languages (indeed, the native languages of North America are greater in number and more diverse than the languages of any other continent).  Between Celilo Falls upriver to Priest Rapids, there was a collection of peoples, not a single

tribe so much as myriad autonomous groups, speaking the Sahaptin language.  Their descendants now live on the Yakama, Umatilla and Warm Springs reservations.  Downriver from Celilo were the Wasco-Wishrams, who spoke a Chinookan language.  Each language had its subdivisions.  Upper Chinook, for instance, is a series of separate languages and dialects ranging from the Oregon and Washington coasts to the middle Columbia River Gorge.  There was a Cascades dialect separate from the Wasco-Wishrams, and subtle differences even between those two groupings.  All these

10 | Mt. Adams Chamber of Commerce

peoples shared the river in common, primarily because of the tremendous natural resource it provided in the annual salmon runs.  The salmon were - and are - more than a food source; they’re a link between mankind and creator, symbol of an ancient lifestyle maintained always close to the earth. The local Klickitat Tribe along the White Salmon and Klickitat Rivers were traders and travelers, connecting up tribes from the Plateaus with the Willamette Valley and coastal Salish tribes.

The Lewis & Clark expedition, commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson, firmly established a United States claim to the Pacific Northwest over its British rivals; the “Corps of Discovery” arrived at the Columbia Gorge in October 1805, overwintered at Fort Clatsop near Astoria, then retraced their steps the following spring.  They encamped both years at the site of modern-day The Dalles.  Two other important explorations into the Northwest were conducted by David Thompson

in 1807-11, and by David Stuart in 1812. George B. McClellan surveyed a potential railroad route in 1853.

By the 1840s, the fur trade was in serious decline, and the economic engine that drove the region’s development turned to permanent settlement and land claims. Preceded by missionaries and military officers, a trickle of immigrants began to arrive in the early 1840s.  This expanded dramatically in 1843, with 900 immigrants reaching the end of the overland Oregon Trail at The Dalles, followed by 1,100 in 1844 and 1,765 in 1845.

Industry would change, as the early fur trade was replaced by timber and wheat ranching.  Salmon provided another industry, although this resource was soon depleted through overfishing and habitat loss.  A similar fate overtook the timber industry, but not until the early 1990s.  Highways came next, most notably the Columbia River Highway in the 1920s, with communities strung along them - towns such as Bingen,

Lyle, Hood River, Stevenson and Cascade Locks, plus many others which have long since disappeared from the map.

The rapids of the Cascades, which long hindered upriver navigation, were tamed first with completion of a lockage at Cascade Locks in 1896, and later in 1938 with completion of Bonneville Dam.  The dam inundated the old rapids, and a new lock allowed ocean-going freighters to reach the upper Columbia River.  A newer, bigger lock opened in 1993.  Farther upstream, the Celilo lock and canal opened in 1915; from The Dalles, it led upstream around the Long Narrows Rapids and Celilo Falls, replacing a portage railroad.  Celilo Falls themselves were inundated in 1957 with construction of The Dalles Dam - a victory at the time for economic progress, but one purchased at heavy cost in terms of culture and scenic beauty. There is a wonderful podcast series by “Hear in the Gorge” giving a greater sense of place, particularly one called

The hydroelectric dams (Bonneville in 1937, The Dalles in 1957 and John Day in 1971) brought not only navigation and flood control but also a source of relatively cheap electricity, which fueled development of a new industry - aluminum smelting. Recent years however brought the closure of the aluminum smelting plant south of Goldendale.

Two key events for the Columbia Gorge came in the latter half of the 20th century: development of Interstate 84 (originally known as Interstate 80-N), replacing Highway 30 in the late 1950s and allowing the large-scale movement of truck traffic, and the 1986 passage by Congress of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.  The act has two purposes: to protect the region’s natural environment, and to encourage its local economies.  Toward that end, Congress authorized a regional

conference center - which would become Skamania Lodge at Stevenson - and a regional interpretive center, the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum at The Dalles.  The region’s long history and prehistory are displayed in museums throughout the Columbia Gorge, including our own local Gorge Heritage Museum in Bingen, and the Twin Bridges Museum in Lyle.

GEOGRAPHY

The county has a total area of 1,904 square miles, of which 1,871 square miles is land and 33 square miles (1.7%) is water. The Columbia River Gorge boasts an amazing array of geologic and Ice Age flood features to delight everyone from the casual tourist to the most intensely-focused researcher. These features nestle in ecological zones ranging from snow-clad volcanic peaks to boreal rainforest, oak woodlands and high desert, all within a 50 mile wide swatch around the mighty Columbia

River.

Ice Age Floods Institute – of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana works to inform and educate the public about the humongous floods that repeatedly swept through and reshaped the interior Pacific Northwest landscape during the last ice age into the massive and beautiful coulees and gorges we cherish today. Learn more by visiting their website.

LOCATION

Klickitat County is located on the North bank of the Columbia River, in South Central Washington between Skamania County to the west, Benton County to the east, and Yakima to the north.

The most common access points are via a scenic drive on State Hwy 14, or by driving I-84 in Oregon and crossing at the HR toll bridge at Exit 64. However there are many other routes in and out of the area. Many of them are rustic forest roads, only accessible for a few months of the

year, however Highway 97 south from Toppenish is a well traveled main highway that passes through Goldendale and joins Highway 14 at Maryhill. Here you can cross from Oregon over the Biggs Junction Bridge. From Goldendale there are paved roads west to Glenwood and Trout Lake, connecting to Highway 141 where you can travel south to Highway 14. A turn off the Glenwood Highway travels southwest connecting to Highway 142 through Klickitat to Lyle and Highway 14. Yet another road travels through Centerville to Lyle, and more roads head east to Bickleton and other towns in the east end of Klickitat County.

POPULATION

There are approximately 23,000 citizens living in Klickitat County.

ECONOMY

The economy of Klickitat County, WA is specialized in Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing, Hunting; Utilities; and Construction.

The largest industries in Klickitat County, WA are Manufacturing, Construction, and Healthcare & Social Assistance.

HOUSING

Housing options in the communities include apartments, condos, single-family units, affordable housing, and span all the way up to custom-built homes, however availability is often extremely limited especially in summer. Because of the growing reputation of White Salmon and the surrounding area, housing

continues to be a wise investment, with growing demand. We encourage you to contact one of the local real estate professionals listed in this directory for more information and guidance.

TRANSPORTATION

Our communities are located along major transportation routes, including interstate highways, two railroad lines, and the Columbia River. One of the best features of Klickitat County is its paradoxical nature as both a remote, quiet getaway and an easy-to-access area not far from Portland. The Portland International Airport is about an hour from White Salmon. State Highway 14 runs parallel to the Columbia River from Vancouver all the way to Bingen and beyond, and is, without a doubt, one of the most scenic highways in the nation. We are proud of our public transportation system and encourage you to plan a car free itinerary while here.

Winter weather can make driving conditions difficult, but WA SR 14, on the sunny side of the Gorge, usually remains open and well-maintained. Always travel prepared for emergencies and delays.

Across the Columbia, Interstate 84 snakes along the river, just as SR 14 does on the Washington side. White Salmon and Bingen are connected to Hood River, Oregon by an iconic, historic (yet narrow) toll bridge that spans the Columbia River. We anticipate a new crossing bridge in the next few years with a pedestrian lane.

The closest Greyhound Station is in Hood River, Oregon, across the Columbia River from Bingen. Amtrak operates out of Bingen and Wishram. Mount Adams Transportation Services is designed to enable Klickitat County residents who lack transportation resources to meet

their basic needs. Gorge TransLink is an alliance of rural transportation providers offering public transportation services throughout the Mid-Columbia area to more distant destinations including Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington.

Business OVERVIEW

Klickitat County is a good place to do business and a wonderful place to live. The rural quality of life offering numerous outdoor recreational opportunities in a healthy, family oriented environment is a strong draw for many. We have strong schools throughout the county, a reasonable tax structure with no personal state income tax and are near to the Portland metro area, yet surrounded by year round scenic vistas.

While the economic history of the county includes sheep and cattle rearing, wheat, orchards, timber and aluminum, Klickitat County now has three distinct economic regions. The western third of the county relies on advanced manufacturing and technology based industries, orchards and fruit packing and wood products. The eastern third is dominated by fruit & vegetable farming and an increasing number of world class wineries, as well as

the Roosevelt regional landfill. The central third boasts the county seat: Goldendale, wind farms, the Maryhill Museum, windsurfing and kite boarding beaches, as well as the now shuttered aluminum smelter.

Recreation tourism brings visitors to all corners of Mt. Adams Country year round. We encourage them to spend dollars at the many small businesses along their route and to stay longer than they planned.

Underwood Fruit was formed in 1917 by seven local growers to supply their farms with production and packing materials and to provide a railroad shipping point for moving their farm packed product east. One of those growers was Mt. Adams Farms, a 300 acre pear orchard planted in 1910. That orchard, now under the same ownership as Mount Adams Fruit, has expanded that farm to 750 acres of pears, Honeycrisp apples

16 | Mt. Adams Chamber of Commerce

and cherries. Mount Adams Fruit began in 1957 packing cherries from the Hood River-White Salmon district as well as from The Dalles, Oregon. In 2019, they began utilizing a newly built building in Bingen, replacing the units lost in a 2017 fire.

LABOR FORCE FACTS

Over the past 25 years, unemployment in Klickitat County has slowly trended lower, as the county economy has become less dependent on resource-based jobs that tend to have large seasonal and cyclical patterns.

Major trends and events over the last 20 years include:

• The expansion of agriculture throughout the county, but especially in vegetable farming and vineyards in east Klickitat County and fruit orchards in the western portion, which lends to AgriTourism projects.

• The closure of the aluminum

smelter in Goldendale in 2001.

• The development of the regional landfill at Roosevelt in 1992 and its subsequent expansion.

• The establishment of Insitu, a designer and fabricator of unmanned aerial vehicles, in Bingen, along with a number of its suppliers setting up shop here as well.

New projects on the east end of the county are anticipated to create many new jobs for a number of years to come. These include the J.W. Hill Renewable Natural Gas Project and a solar panel installation project.

AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE

Eighty miles long and 4,000 feet deep in some places, the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area is one of the Pacific Northwest’s most spectacular outdoor playgrounds. Straddling the Oregon-Washington state line, its 300,000 acres beg to be explored. There are rivers to be rafted, lush forests to be explored from a saddle or a bike, mountains to be hiked, and black basalt cliffs to be scaled. Best of all, the Columbia River Gorge is easily accessible, just an hour’s drive from Portland/ Vancouver.

Like the Grand Canyon, the Columbia River Gorge is a testament to the power of flowing water. For more than

40 million years, the Columbia River has carved a deep gash into the volcanic rock of the Cascade Mountains. At some points, the canyon walls now tower 4,000 feet above the river, creating a wind tunnel that can generate 30-knot winds and makes the gorge arguably the boardsailing capital of the world. From jet skiing and outrigger canoes to foil boarding and stand up paddling, our wind and water combinations offer a variety of options for you to try. Rentals and lessons are available from several sources. The Columbia Gorge Windsurfing Association has demo equipment available for kids – free or very reasonable.

Things TO DO

32 |
Mt. Adams Chamber of Commerce

A variety of art galleries, gift shops, museums, and cultural attractions exist here. Bingen is home to Antiques & Oddities, one of the largest antique malls in the region that is so much more than antiques. Goldendale is proud of their State Park Observatory. This unique state park houses one of the nation’s largest, most accessible public telescopes in a newly renovated facility. The engaging viewing programs are a must do. We have an annual Art Studio tour to highlight the many artists working from home studios. Gorge Artists welcome scheduled visits to their studios year round. There are many talented local Musicians playing every week at a variety of locations. Check our events calendar and the newsletter for details. Performing Arts are strong in our communities and there are numerous productions year round for your entertainment.

There is a large selection of excellent dining possibilities and coffee shops, as well as several lodging

options scattered throughout all of Klickitat County. We have multiple renowned wineries with tasting rooms, an expanding, award-winning microbrewery and a local year round farm store in Bingen with fresh produce, in addition to a great quality full service grocery store in White Salmon, which also offers a hot/cold deli. In neighboring towns can be found many wonderful, rustic (and sometimes colorful), “Mom and Pop” stores. The Glenwood General Store has well stocked shelves with a diverse assortment of supplies and offers daily specials. Mount Adams stands tall as the 2nd highest mountain in the state. It is visible from many parts of Klickitat County, with some great viewing areas in several locations.

On good viewing days, you can see four mountains from a location near Eddieville Raceway, just south of Goldendale on Hwy 97: Hood, Adams, St. Helens and Rainier. The eastern portion of Klickitat County is popular with Rally drivers and car

touring groups for the wonderful drives available. The Maryhill Loops Road is a special treasure only open twice a year to the public.

Many hiking trails and waterfalls are scattered throughout the area, from deep forest to dry oak savannahs. Wildflowers are a delight, with a large variety from west to east, and throughout at least 3 seasons. Long country drives are available on paved, gravel or dirt roads, and easy access to the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and the Columbia River National Scenic Area. Fish hatcheries throughout the county are fun to visit. Conboy Lake Wildlife Refuge outside of Glenwood is a serene and special place. Home to massive herds of bugling elk, as well as a nesting place for the migrating Sandhill Cranes, you may be the only human for miles.

You can watch the paragliders hovering over Bingen and landing out at Bingen Point on a big grassy area that is also popular with dog owners and picnickers. Rock climbers have

2023 Business Directory & Visitor’s Guide | 33

several basalt cliffs to enjoy not far out of town, and there is more than one sail-board park where you can join in or simply watch in amazement. White Salmon is home to the 19 acre ‘Spokes Bike Park’ and there are numerous off road cycling trails nearby. There is a popular skateboard park in Bingen. A wonderful way to experience our area is on horseback. Spend the morning hours on a trail ride and then go whitewater rafting in the afternoon to make a refreshing day of it. Far to the east, Bickleton boasts a large bluebird population which can be viewed along their hiking trails and open prairie. The oldest operating tavern in the state of Washington is another claim to fame for Bickleton, as well as their antique carousel museum.

Rivers, lakes and streams mean fishing! Several varieties of trout, steelhead, bass, salmon and sturgeon are the draw here. Go with a guide or venture on your own. Pickup tackle and supplies at many local shops where all your provisions and licenses can be purchased.

Winter recreation is one of the county’s best kept secrets. With snow-mobiling, sledding, Nordic skiing, and snowshoeing all readily accessed in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, there are a variety of ways to enjoy our winter wonderland. Equipment rentals are available in Hood River. Remember to stop at the Mt. Adams Chamber Visitor Center for your non-motorized Sno-Park Permit before you go. There are several good mechanics in the area, an auto parts store, and a bicycle sales and repair shop.

WINERIES

Americas’ Most Unique Wine Region is located less than an hour east of Portland, Oregon. Straddling the mighty Columbia River, the Columbia Gorge Growing Region includes the fertile soils of both Washington and Oregon. From the marine influenced climate of Underwood Mountain to the arid dryland of the Eastern Gorge, from Albarino to Zinfandel, the grapes and wines of this 40 mile stretch are a spectacular selection of sweet whites and luscious reds. Our winemakers have access to over

50 different premium grape varieties to create their distinct and extraordinary artisan wines. Whichever direction you are headed, we can direct you to a local winery.

MICROBREWERIES

Recently growing in popularity, there are now several microbreweries locally with claim to regional and national level awards with their craft. Our local brew masters are passionate about the process and their commitment to making quality beer. Everybody’s Brewing in White Salmon is a core of the downtown scene with live music almost every weekend and a great menu, as well as an outdoor patio deck with Mt. Hood views.

CAMPING/RV PARKS

Who doesn’t love to camp as a way to connect with the natural world? There’s a long tradition of camping in the Gorge - from backpacking to RVs. Everyone finds a different balance between their rugged, inner wild and the joy of a few luxuries. We can suggest options for whatever level of comfort you desire. Regardless of your go-to camping style, please tread lightly on our natural and cultural resources, keep other people’s experience in mind, and generally re-

member to ‘Recreate with Respect’!

Be aware that technology will not always serve you in the wilderness areas of our region. Be prepared with backup plans, hard maps and always take some supplies with you when venturing. It is advisable to keep your fuel tanks filled, as the nearest gas station could be some miles away. ReadySetGOrge.com is a wonderful resource to prepare for your trip in advance.

WATER ACCESS

The Columbia River is shared by many different groups, windsurfers, kayakers, fishermen, families, boaters, and barges, among others. While most people see the river as a source of recreation, local tribes see it as a means of survival, and regional barge companies see it as a means for business travel. Be aware of and courteous to other users, and always practice good safety habits with children and pets. Leave it better than you found it. Please be respectful of the Native American In Lieu Sites along the Columbia River which are designated by the Federal Government for access only by tribal members.

James’ passion for service has seen him in the roles of Search and Rescue EMT, wild-land firefighter, and infantry soldier.

Deb Michelson is the Marketing and Events Manager at Hawkins Cellars in Underwood, WA. Together with the winemaker/owner of Hawkins, she planted a small Pinot Noir vineyard in 2013 and opened the tasting room

Over the past decade of living in the White Salmon Area, she has served on the White Salmon Arts Council Board, in various positions, and now as President.

She worked at North Shore Cafe beginning in 2012, where she created the thriving Holiday Artisan Market for over 5 years, and then added the Spring Artisan market. These bi-annual markets were the link for Artists and Residents to Shop Local. Her newest endeavors are the Art Chats, hosted by the White Salmon Arts Council. These successful events have linked Local Artists, Local Businesses and the Community together to learn about what drives the creative pas-

sion of each Artist. Kyla is an Artist Co-Owner at Made in the Gorge, the Gorges’ longest running Artist CoOp. She makes and sells her Crystal and Feather jewelry, as well as pieces from her newest crafting adventure, basket weaving! Kyla lives in Husum with her husband, Dane, and two children; Reagan, 11 and Ash who just turned 1 on Thanksgiving. She enjoys many outdoor activities with her family in the Gorge mountains and rivers. Linda Ingebo is the newest member of the MACC board as of this December 2022. Linda and her nephew, Guy Joseph Ricciardulli, are the proud owners of the Klickitat River Inn. They have worked extremely hard these past 5 years at becoming recognized as a 5-Star establishment. This year they will be offering it as the next upcoming, “one of a kind”, riverfront, small wedding venue. Linda is also a volunteer at the Klickitat Museum. She has been involved in the small community of Klickitat, WA since 2015. After experiencing many crises in her own life, Linda has great passion to help others in need. When they don’t know where to turn for help, Linda is there. Sharing the knowledge and resources she has learned through her years of crisis, is her way of “giving back” and “paying it forward”.

Because of the sizable returns.

NW Natural is proud to have served our customers for over 163 years. With that pride comes the knowledge that we have an even greater responsibility to the community at large. That’s why on any given day you’ll find our employees helping others. And the fruits of those efforts are visible in the faces of those who need us most.

We believe that if we put the time in to help our neighbors through philanthropy, volunteering or just plain sweat, the rewards are tenfold.

Together with numerous charitable organizations, we’re doing what any good neighbor would do. We’re working to make this the kind of place we can call home. And that’s the biggest return of all.
