Join me for one of the last drives of the year as we explore some interesting back roads in the north end of the Puget Sound and, hopefully see some beautiful autumn leaves.
This is a meandering 50 or so mile drive along scenic back roads to lunch at the famous Rhodes River Ranch, located just outside of Oso, WA. It is on the second floor of a horse arena, with a glass wall for a view of the horse venue. There is no special event scheduled for this day, but people can be observed working their horses from time to time.
The lunch menu is quite extensive and is moderately priced. There are gluten free items on request.
From here, everyone can make their way home through Arlington to Highway 9, and from there, connect to I-5 if desired. Of course one can always trace the route in reverse, or get lost on the maze of parallel roads on return.
We will meet up at 9:30 AM at the Monroe Chevron on Highway 2 at the east end of Monroe. Driver’s meeting will be at 9:45 for a 10 a.m. commencement of activities.
514 E Main St
Monroe, WA 98272
And end up at:
Rhodes River Ranch
22016 Entsminger Rd
Arlington, WA 98223
This will be about a two-hour drive with two 15 minute rest stops spaced somewhat evenly.
DIRECTIONS FROM I-5:
Take the highway 2 exit east in Everett. About 40 miles from the exit.
Drive north on Highway 522 to the end in Monroe and take Highway 2 east.
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
