Other Interesting Things
- Forks (WA) Log Cabin – Long time LOTW visitor Val Giles built a log cabin from scratch for others to enjoy on his Wa. State property. Spending a few nights there is definitely on my list of things to do someday. Check out the website and you’ll probably want to put it on your list of things to do if you’re ever in the Pacific Northwest. Very cool stuff, Val.
- Autumn Harvest Ojibwe Wild Rice – Hand picked MN Wild Rice; check it out if you want the “real stuff” as opposed to the cultivated type.
