With winter looming the outdoors are calling in a totally new way. It’s time to grab your warmest jackets, and favorite boots and explore Washington’s nature. Lake Easton State Park is one of our state’s Sno-Parks and it’s gearing up for the season.
The State Park is located between Seattle and Ellensburg off of I-90. It’s a great destination for those in the city with limited time for an outdoor adventure. Plus the park is east enough that you might just catch some sun if Seattle is overcast and gray.
