A Fun Find in the Yakima River Canyon
Photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets / Eastern Washington Tourism

On Thursday February 21st, 2019 the weather was nice enough to get out and do something.

My son’s dog “Crunch” and I took the Jeep for a drive in the Yakima River Canyon.

I stopped off at Mile Post 8 Boat Launch to stretch my legs. I parked next to this paved trail I had never went down before. I thought I would check it out. I forgot Crunch’s leash at home, so I left him in the Jeep to take a quick look down the trail.

Down at the Yakima River I was checking out the icebergs when I spotted something green with shinny things on it. I snapped a photo and it started running off. I chase it up the trail toward the parking lot. At the parking lot Crunch stopped the green thing since I was chasing it. Since Crunch pinned it down, I tied the green thing up and brought it home.

Here are some photos of my adventure:

On Thursday, August 16th we set up the Selah Sweets Shaved Ice Truck up on Historical North Front Street in Downtown Yakima for the last of ten Downtown Summer Nights events in 2018.

This was a very hot and smokey night, but a lot of fun. Live music from The Olson Bros Band and Afton Prater.

More about the event from the official page:

EVERY THURSDAY | JUNE 14TH – AUGUST 16TH 5:30 – 9:00 PM | FREE & ALL AGES

Since its successful debut in 2013, Yakima’s Downtown Summer Nights concert series has become an integral part of Yakima’s summer music scene. Each Thursday, come dance and enjoy a cup of your favorite craft beverage in the heart of downtown on Historic North Front Street. The event is FREE and open to all ages. This year’s 10-show series will run from June 14th through August 16th.

Each week features two bands and a bustling YCH Hops Beer Garden pouring your Yakima Valley craft favorites and outfitted with Memorial Foundation misting tents for those especially hot evenings.
