The Route to Glenwood

"....After arriving in the small community of Lyle for the first stop of the day, we leave the big gorge for the smaller Klickitat River gorge, following that scenic river upstream for twenty miles through the town of Klickitat before starting the big climb of the day....."
BETTER KNOW GLENWOOD  :  by Dean Rodgers. 
"With a population between 400 and 500 people, Glenwood, Washington, isn’t a big town, but it has some mighty huge views of a pretty spectacular mountain. The downtown won’t take long to explore. Once you’ve taken in the general store and the Glenwood Inn,......."
Day 2...leaving Glenwood to Dufur:

".....the one selected that has very little traffic, great scenery, a wonderful downhill, and as we can’t have everything, a short section of gravel....."

We offer a year-round bed & breakfast retreat,  located at the base of 12,276-foot Mt. Adams in the Cascade Range of Washington State. Surrounded by ponderosa pines and meadowland of the Glenwood Valley, our long-established 80-acre ranch is less than a two-hour scenic drive from Portland, Oregon.
Glenwood is a small community located in the Glenwood Valley.  In early days, the valley was called Camas Prairie, for the wild Camas plant that grows in the lake bottom and was harvested by Native Americans.    "Lake bottom" is what the locals refer to the part of the valley that floods in the spring with snow melt.  The "canal" drains the water into the Mill Pond, then Outlet Creek and over Outlet Falls to the Klickitat River. During the summer, the "lake bottom" turns into a grassy valley used by ranchers, ducks, geese, sand hill cranes, elk, frogs, deer and any of us that want to gaze upon its beauty and diversity. 

Glenwood School 
The hub of the community I think we have one of the prettiest school settings in the state. The mountain is in view from our school windows,  playground and track field.  Sometimes we take it for granted.

Rodeo is always on Fathers Day Weekend.  When it's NOT Rodeo Weekend, the Dance Hall, Kitchen, and Campground are available for rent.  It's a great place for  weddings, receptions, family get togethers...

 A common question we hear is..."Where's Glenwood?"  In fact...the Glenwood General Store sells T shirts that say,  "Where in the hell is Glenwood?"
The easiest answer is, "Go one hour east of Portland,  to Hood River.  Cross the Columbia River into Washington and we are  40 minutes north of White Salmon.  Trout Lake is to our west, Goldendale to the east and The Yakama Indian Reservation to the north.

One thing you will notice if you are in Glenwood on a clear the abundance of stars.  Every month,  Jim White, of Trout Lake, does a local astronomy page,  so we just might be able to identify what's up above.
