Visit Roslyn, Washington

Head east to root for your favorite lumberjacks as they scamper up 80-foot poles.
Loggers gone wild at the High Country Log Show in Roslyn

WHY: For the second annual High Country Log Show (9/1-9/2, noon. Free. Runje Field, Roslyn Pioneer Park; 509.674.8161; cleelumroslyn.org). In honor of the area’s timberrr-ed history (and to raise money for local scholarships), you can cheer (or join) several log-tastic events, such as the obstacle pole buck or the speed climb, a skillful scamper up an 80-foot pole.

WHILE YOU’RE THERE: Visit the popular Roslyn Sunday Market (Pennsylvania Avenue and First Street; roslynmarkets.com) in the city’s historic core for fresh produce and live music, then stop for a sip at Vintage Vine (104 N First St.; 509.649.3064; vintage-vine.com), where bottles of local wine (including some from current customer fave Jones of Washington) are always open for tastings and glasses of local craft beers (such as Roslyn Brewing Company’s Brookside pale lager) wait to be poured.

GETTING THERE: From Seattle take I-90 east to exit 80 toward Roslyn. Turn left onto Bullfrog Road and follow to Washington Avenue.
