Summer is definitely on its way out as is evidenced by the fall magazines that are arriving in my mailbox. The October 2012 issue of National Geographic Traveler landed and features a story I shot for their Road Trip section on central Washington State. The adventure begins in Centralia then wanders over the Cascade Range, winding up with explorations through Yakima, Ellensburg and Prosser. This is a beautiful area of the country, particularly at this time of year when the stone fruits of the Yakima Valley are ripening and everyone is getting excited for harvest. There are some fine wines produced in this area, which also boasts the second largest hops growing area in the world. If you decide to take this trip, I highly recommend staying at the Cherry Wood Bed, Breakfast and Barn where one can go on trail rides through the vineyards on horses that have been rescued and rehabilitated. While I was there, a pony named “Wild Bill” adopted me when I was shooting in one of the places where they keep some of the horses. He was adorable!!! Spend the night in a truly luxurious tee pee and take a bath under the stars in one of their outdoor tubs. You can read the story on National Geographic Traveler’s web site here.
