On Veteran’s Day Wednesday November 11th, 2009 we met up at Olmstead Place State Park for a tour from our friend Park Ranger Hoekstra.

Olmstead Place State Park is a 217-acre day-use park that features a working pioneer farm. The park is located off I-90 a few miles east of Ellensburg Washington.

Down at the lower end of the park Foxracer gave us a tour through the old buildings and showed us the equipment used in the old days.
Here are some pictures. Foxracer told us what all these things were and did, but I can not do as well repeating it.

The kids loved the wagon ride and had fun running around. The tour was great.
If you are into history this place is a must see.

Thank you Park Ranger Hoekstra for the great tour and wagon ride. We hope to come back when it is warmer.
