Everyone's Travel Club took a sweet little weekend paddling and wine tasting trip a few weeks ago. Our destination was Rimrock Lake, a beautiful lake (pics above and below) a little less than an hour West of Yakima, Washington, on highway 12. Here's a description of the lake:
Rimrock Lake which is part of the Yakima Project was formed by the construction of Tieton Dam on the Tieton River. Bumping, Rimrock, and Clear Lakes are in Wenatchee National Forest. The rugged mountain terrain, surrounded by coniferous forest, creates magnificient scenic settings. The lake, along with Clear Lake, provides 2,790 water-surface acres. Available species include rainbow trout and kokanee.
We left Seattle for the Yakima Valley Saturday morning. We ended up in the Valley between Yakima and Zillah, WA, otherwise known the Rattlesnake Hills wine region(didn't see any rattlesnakes). After mega wine tasting we finally left town for Rimrock Lake. Below is a pic from the drive leaving Yakima.
Made it, ready to paddle.
Leaving the next morning...early.
