Day trippin'

Got out of the city

Lake Easton State Park is one of my favorite late summer/fall day trips when it's cool in Seattle and hot in Eastern WA.

The picnic area is very well shaded with tall pine trees and is located right on the lakeshore. Beer is tolerated, even if not expressly permitted. Dog are allowed on leashes; children may run free.

Lake Easton is the headwaters of the Yakima River, which is the main source of irrigation for the fruit and farm-rich Yakima Valley.

Located at exit 70 off I-90, about 10 miles east of Snoqualmie Pass. about 75 min from Seattle.
