Host: Ross Scott
Join me for one of the first drives of the year as we explore some interesting back roads in the north end of the Puget Sound.
This is a straightforward 50-plus mile drive along scenic back roads, to lunch at the famous Rhodes River Ranch, located just outside of Oso, WA. It is located on the second floor of a horse arena, with a glass wall for a view of the horses. There is no special event scheduled for this day, but people can be observed working their horses from time to time.
Right now I have reservations for the restaurant for lunch. If there is a change, I will let you know.
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!
