Re: Where in WA?
When I lived in Twisp (seasonal job with WDFW) I referred to it as the Meathow valley. Is the butcher shop (chris is the owner I think) still there? I always loved that place. I would hang around and talk with chris for a few hours once a week, then buy a couple lbs. of Jerkey.
Are you a Packer over there? I have always been interested in a hunt in that area where I packing in was needed. As far away as possible from those roads. It would be a blast (no pun intended)!
