This area has apple and cherry orchards and this reminds me of the similar areas in Michigan. The apple orchards are in my area of SE Michigan and the cherries are famous in the Traverse City in the NW part of the Lower Peninsula (Mitten) of Michigan. I feel somewhat at home.
Most town in this area are located on a river. There is smokejumper station between Twisp and Winthrop.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
