Tour: Columbia River and Goldendale Observatory Tour

Registration opens on Tuesday, July 19th at 8 AM.  Register early by clicking the "Register Here" box to avoid being placed on the waiting list or not being able to register if the tour sells out early! 

Well, we aren't going to do the Maryhill Loops Road drive this year, but we are going to drive some new and some old roads on either side of the Columbia River.  This year we were able to secure a group reservation for a tour of the Goldendale Observatory at 3 PM on Saturday, Aug 13th, the only time it is offered.  The tour is FREE, but you'll need a Discovery Pass to enter the Goldendale Observatiory State Park.
