Casino Day 08/19/15
By Barbara Lawrence
Darlene and I went on the Snoqualmie bus today to their casino and basically fooled around. I ended up being ahead $25 but only because the penny machine (the only ones we play) had a credit in it that someone walked away from.

Kanaskat Palmer State Park 08/01/15
By Cheryl & John Schmit
We took our Sunday ride on July 26th and went to the 'other' end of Kent-Kangley Road. Kangley turned out to be a very small neighborhood. Nearby is another of Washington's great state parks, Kanaskat Palmer State Park. It is located east of Maple Valley on the Green River. There are day use facilities and camp sites available, but the big attraction is the river. Many use it for white water rafting. Right now there is very little water in the river.
