Memorial day

American Flags in all their glory!

Memorial Day kicks off the unofficial start of summer this weekend.  The longer nights, warmer weather, B-B-Q’s smoking, and remembering America’s heroes  will start the summer party off on a high note.

Memorial Day in the North Central Cascades

Memorial Day in the North Central Cascades is the time to get outside and play.  Sunshine and warm weather greets you as you take off on the morning hike, family fishing trip, teeing it up on the 1st tee, or sliding down the rapids of the Wenatchee River.  Find the activity that you enjoy, or a couple of them, and bring the family over for some outdoor fun.

Memorial Day weekend is also the time to remember all of the service people

Thank you!

this great nation has been fortunate to have fighting to keep it the land of the free and the home of the brave.  Our service people that have paid the highest cost for our freedom, to enjoy every day we have available, should be remembered, honored, and thought of as we go through the weekend.  Many brave men and women continue the fight every day to keep America the best country in the world.  Find some time to say thank-you by visiting a cemetery, a service club for veterans, or a parade in their honor.  Thank a veteran you see on the street or the family member that gave of their time to the service of this great land.

Pine River Ranch has some great opportunities to get out and enjoy the long weekend.  Find the packages on our website and reserve your room and your play time through us.  You can also choose to sit back, enjoy a small fire in our shelter area while you B-B-Q a steak on the grill with your favorite bottle of wine from Eagle Creek Winery or growler of beer from Big E Ales that you can purchase directly from us.

The golf and stay package allows two people to play eighteen holes with a cart at Kahler Glen GC for $50.  That is a huge savings!

The raft and stay package is for an Osprey Rafting Company trip down the Wenatchee river.  This can be either a two-hour or four-hour ride.  The speed of the river, the white water over the side, and the cool water hitting you in the face will take exhilaration to another level.  The four- hour trip is $65/person and the two-hour trip is less.

If a little more solitude and nature is what you desire there are some great hikes that are open right now that had snow on them a few weeks ago.  Taking a walk through the spring woods is a great way to see nature in its purest form.  A short, sweet, hike to Hidden Lake will allow you to see the green canopy of the forest but also show you a beautiful little gem of a lake at the end.  Pack a lunch, a little bug spray, and enjoy your time without the hustle and bustle of the world around you.

We hope that you make the time to both enjoy and remember why America is so great this weekend.  It is a country of boundless opportunity, wide open spaces, and amazing people and cultures.  We hope that you get some time away to rest and recharge before the heat of summer comes on strong.  Make a reservation today for your slice of heaven at Pine River Ranch.


No salmon in Puget Sound? Fish Lake Wenatchee

Lake Wenatchee

Lake Wenatchee Sunset

No salmon in Puget Sound? Fish Lake Wenatchee.  This is the year that all sport fishing anglers in the Pacific Northwest need to change their schedules.  For years you could catch silvers, kings, and pinks everyday off popular fishing spots in Puget Sound like Dolphin Point, Point No Point, and Port Townsend.
