For those seeking adventure, the area around the Cascades is ripe with activities and attractions. From steep hikes with unbelievably rewarding lookouts, to ziplining, to bouldering, there are countless opportunities that’ll take your breath away as you head east beyond Monroe.
“Not everyone gets stoked on the thought of bouncing around in a raft for hours, and some just want to elevate the experience. So for those of you who simply envision nodding along on the journey, try a well rounded hybrid that promotes a strong body buzz, like Dogtown Pioneers’ Blue Dragon.”
With the abundance of rivers wind through the mountain range which divides Eastern and Western Washington, it should come as no surprise that the majority of activities revolve around water activities.
The river that lies closest to Gold Bar Marijuana is the Skykomish, an expansive waterway which cuts all the way west through the state and into the Puget Sound, and it splits into its north and south forks not far from your last stop pot shop. Skykomish is a popular destination in the area and offers much to active cannabis consumers, including white water rafting and kayaking. For newbies looking for a little bit of direction, local company Alpine Adventures provides rafting equipment and guides qualified to take a group out for a river-based adventure.
Not everyone gets stoked on the thought of bouncing around in a raft for hours, and some just want to elevate the experience. So for those of you who simply envision nodding along on the journey, try a well rounded hybrid that promotes a strong body buzz, like Dogtown Pioneers’ Blue Dragon. The equalized nature of the genotype comes from parent strains Blueberry (indica-dominant hybrid) and Sour Diesel (sativa-dominant), and this heady strain will keep you alert while increasing euphoria.
Classes and trips are offered for varying skill levels, and depending on the duration, can even include a meal and different kinds of rental gear. Of course, the Skykomish isn’t the only river which holds interest for Snohomish County’s web-toed folks, but some of the other popular choices—like the Wenatchee, Skagit, and Sauk River— require more of a commute.
