Welcome to Kittitas County!
This beautiful area has been home to my family for four generations. I am a coal miner’s daughter and appreciate the cultural richness this area provides. At one time there were 23 different nationalities represented here, which reminds me of what a melting pot of ethnicity we are. Rich heritage along with endless hours of recreation makes the Upper County the place to visit especially during Cle Elum’s Pioneer Days. We have the best hiking, biking, fishing, camping, rafting and mushroom pickin’ around. During Pioneer Days over the Fourth of July weekend we also have many exciting things for you and your family to enjoy such as the Grand Parade, the Queen’s Tea, the Heritage Club dinner, Fireman’s Breakfast, Roslyn Riders Play Day, fireworks, horseshoe and bocci ball tournaments. We hope you and your family join us as we celebrate this great nation and our wonderful community over the Fourth. I am grateful and humbled by the honor of being selected the 2016 Pioneer Days Queen and look forward to carrying on this wonderful tradition.

...is a town without equal. With even amounts of friendly folks and entertainment on hand, there’s a little bit of something for anybody. It grew out of a history of coal mining and now is a portal for a wealth of outdoor recreation, a spirited nightlife and a variety of stores that offer everything from bicycles to beer growlers. Keep your eyes peeled for special events throughout the year as well as for some fun sightseeing such as the massive mural of Marlon Brando painted on the only movie theater in the area.

...is a peaceful little town that less than 300 people call home. It’s one of the last stops on SR-903 as travelers head west to visit recreational sites such as Speelyi Beach on Lake Cle Elum, Salmon La Sac and the many vacation rental homes in between. Ronald offers year round recreational activities with sprawling mountainsides to snowmobile on in the winter and swimming, fishing and boating opportunities within easy reach during the summer. Within the town itself are two of the state’s oldest landmarks: the old Ronald School and Hawthorne Hall, which host several events each year like the Halloween Haunted House.

If skiing and snowboarding are your ideas of a good time then Hyak is where you go to make it happen. Located at the base of Snoqualmie Pass, Hyak offers a base camp with lodging, restaurants, gas stations and easy access to the Summit at Snoqualmie ski resort. Besides winter sports, the surrounding area offers outstanding hiking, biking and horseback riding opportunities. A very popular attraction is the John Wayne Pioneer Trail that features the Snoqualmie Tunnel.
Jim Fossett photo
If you’ve ever wanted to learn about how the pioneers made their living through mining then you’ll want to take SR-97 east to Liberty. Gold was discovered there in 1873 and the community has set up a historical kiosk to learn more. The Wenatchee National Forest surrounds Liberty on all sides and offers camping and hiking opportunities including the Red Top Lookout hike, an easy climb where you can see one of the last wildfire lookout towers still in use in Washington along with sweeping views of the Kittitas Valley and Stuart Mountain range.

See the best lumberjacks at Roslyn Log Show
Pay attention to when the big hot saws start up. You may want to take cover as they can send wood chips flying into your hair or beverage cups!
Timber sports in the Central Cascades has taken off over the years as the High Country Log Show as the sounds of sharp axes and high-RPM chainsaws chopping wood fill the air in Roslyn’s Runje Park for two days on Labor Day weekend. This year’s free show takes place Sept. 3-4. Competitors from all around the Pacific Northwest come to show their skills in over a dozen events, including axe throwing, speed climbing up 80-foot poles, obstacle courses and chainsaw competitions that feature hot saws – massive, custom made chainsaws that are often built around the engines of small cars. There’s food, beverages and at the end of the friendly competitions, organizers crown a Bull of the Woods – a local who’s recognized for their dedication to the local logging industry. Call 509-674-8161 for more info. 2016 EXPLORE! Central Cascades

Look high and low for rare glass souvenir ornaments in Roslyn Twice a year in the spring then summer, Tony Davey, an artist and owner of Fused art gallery in Roslyn, carefully crafts then hides small, rectangular glass ornaments all around town and asks locals and visitors to do their best to find them. Davey said it’s just a way to get people more interested in exploring his town.“It’s just to kind of encourage people to hang around town, look around a little bit more and open their eyes to a bunch of things,” he explained. “It’s something to really have fun with.” The pieces come in a wide variety of colors and are decorated with the word ‘Roslyn’ in stylized text along with the date to remind people of their stay in town. If you spot one of these ornaments, it’s yours to keep – Roslyn’s gift to you. Besides getting people to explore the city, Davey also hopes seeing and finding the ornaments gets people inspired to create their own art, especially at his shop where he teaches glass art.

New pioneer history exhibit
on display at Carpenter House Museum & Art Gallery
Traditionally, Cle Elum’s Carpenter House Museum has focused on the Carpenter family, including Frank Carpenter, a mayor of Cle Elum who built the house in 1914, but on July 4, 2015, the society opened an all-new exhibit on the third floor to widen its scope and feature more of the local community’s history, including the Prohibition, early pioneers, businesses, education, transportation, the fires of 1891 and 1918 and Cle Elum’s red light district. The rest of the museum has plenty to offer, as well. Visitors can examine the Carpenter family’s clothing, furniture, books, paintings, dinnerware and many other artifacts that have been preserved “in their natural habitat” since 1989 when the last surviving Carpenter descendant donated the home and its furnishings to the society. The museum also serves as the gallery for High Country Artists (highcountryartists.com), who rotate their exhibits of featured local artists monthly. The museum is located at 302 West Third Street in Cle Elum. It’s open Friday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. For more info visit highcountryartists.com or nkcmuseums.org. Once known as ‘A Skier’s Paradise’, the region hosted a popular ski jump competition in the 1920s through the early 1930s. Charlene Kauzlarich of the local historical society places a primitive set of skis and a pair of ski boots once belonging to Hans Iverson, who loved the Cle Elum area he made his home in the 1920s because it reminded him of his home back in Norway. He was a ski "yumper" in the old country and happy that he could continue doing so here. These are a few Jim Fossett photo of the antiquities and photos on display at the museum. Winter recreation plays a strong role in Central Cascades history, as it does today. Founding members of the Summit Ski Club (later known as the Cle Elum Ski Club) started the organization to teach area young people how to ski. They wanted to promote the area's wonderland of winter sports too. Club members made their own skis because there were no local places to buy ski equipment at that time.

Traveling the Kittitas County Barn Quilt Trail
Immerse yourself in local art
Traveling along the back roads of Kittitas County you’ll find over 100 barns and other significant buildings (some dating back over a century) decorated with large, painted wooden quilt blocks – often inspired by a family heirloom quilt. The collection comprises one of the county’s most popular trails. A beautiful trail map is available at Chamber of Commerce visitor centers in Ellensburg and Cle Elum and at local museums. A bio on each site gives those taking the self-guided driving tour a glimpse into the significance of the chosen quilt block. The map also provides a look at area events, the names of the 24 volunteers who helped hang the quilts, names of sponsors and a list of historical buildings in the region with photographs of each. All totaled, to prepare and hang over 100 quilts and produce the map, this grass-roots folk-art project required over 12,000 hours of volunteer work. For historical info on the quilts and more about how you can get involved, visit BarnQuiltsWashington.org.
The artistic blaze burns brighter every year in Roslyn, especially during Roslyn’s annual art festival. The festival takes place in downtown Roslyn Friday through Sunday, August 5-7. At the Friday night kickoff, the downtown area echoes with live music. Other attractions include vendors, Try-art Stations, and the artists themselves. This is a juried show accompanied by artisan sales. For more info, call 509-649-2223 or visit RoslynArtFestival.org.

Tour one of the state’s most unusual cemetery sites in Roslyn Roslyn Cemetery, nestled in the hills above Roslyn, is a reflection of the rich ethnic mix of people who settled in the region beginning around 1886. Clustered serenely on 15 acres of woods and hills are 26 separate cemeteries. Since 1887, land was donated by or was purchased from the Northern Pacific by fraternal ethnic and civic organizations for burial of their deceased members. At least 24 nationalities are represented within the nearly 5,000 graves. The cemeteries were listed on the National Historic Register in 1978. Burial customs from those countries can be observed today. Many graves seem to be above the ground due to the placement of curbings. Footstones are common, placed with the hope that in more affluent times a headstone could be purchased and erected. The ornate and picturesque fences around some plots were originally erected to protect the site from foraging cattle and wildlife. The Italians and Yugoslavians, especially, used elaborate markers: Icons of the departed, pictures encased in ceramic and embedded in the tombstones were used quite frequently. A newer method of adding a likeness of the deceased to the stone is photo etching. There are several fine examples of this in the Memorial Garden section of the cemeteries. In part, the uniqueness of Roslyn’s historical cemeteries is that for most sections perpetual care existed only as long as the participating organizations of families were around. In recent years, volunteers have expended thousands of hours to maintain and beautify the grounds.
DIRECTIONS: To get to the Roslyn Cemetery from Cle Elum – head northwest on SR903, continue another mile after the roundabout to the intersection of SR903 and Pennsylvania Avenue, the major intersection in Roslyn. Turn left (west) on Pennsylvania Avenue. Go past the Roslyn Museum and up the hill to merge with Fifth Street. From Fifth Street turn left onto Memorial Drive. A HANDY BROCHURE that includes a map of the cemeteries can be picked up at the Roslyn Museum or at one of the info kiosks.

The Central Cascades tend to get windy, especially the further east you travel through the Kittitas County Valley, and Puget Sound Energy decided to take advantage of that by building the second largest wind farm in the state between Kittitas and Vantage in the hills above the Vantage Highway. The Wild Horse Wind and Solar Facility isn’t just massive in scale, with the capacity to generate 273 megawatts, but it’s also unique in that it allows tours and other recreational activities throughout spring, summer and fall between April 1 and Nov. 15. Special tours during the winter months are available by calling 509-925-3131 if you’re not one of the 18,000 visitors the center hosts every season. The tour gives you an up close and personal look at the 221 feet high, 104 ton towers. You get to go right inside one during the daily tour and also get to peek at some of the internal components that make them tick with the convenience of standing firmly on the ground. Besides tours, PSE also offers special events and even grants written permission to hike, bird watch, ride horses and take part in other non-hunting recreational activities between April 1 and Nov. 30. Hunting is allowed with a special reservation from the Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife at wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/hunting_access/private_lands/type/56/. More information on the Wild Horse facility is available at pse.com/inyourcommunity/ToursandRecreation/WildHorse

A mountain bikers mecca Nearly five miles of a planned 15-mile trail newly christened as the Mountain Bike Park at City Heights in Cle Elum are complete and open to the public. At buildout the system also will have connectors to other trails.

Office Supply Scenarios
Office Supply Scenario #32:
Bradley does his best thinking at the lake house.
What’s YOUR Office Supply Scenario?
You’re decluttering and need big markers for Yard Sale signs. Oh, and labels! It’s senior project time and your daughter needs a presentation board. Tomorrow. There’s only one envelope left in the box, and you have 3 thank you notes to write. The cash register has rung all day, hurray! Time for more thermal register rolls. You volunteered to help with your club’s event by organizing posters and banners. Just one more fax and the house is yours!
BRING YOUR SCENARIOS TO
When he’s ready to print, he is out of ink. But Bradley isn’t worried. He knows Tribune Office Supply & Printing is just down the road and carries what he needs.
