Letter from the Bondi Family

Greetings from the Methow Valley!  We made it through a tough summer of dry, fire-prone weather and deluge rain storms.  However the early fall has been incredible in its bluebird blue skies, mid-70's during the days, and crisp evening temperatures.    If you are planning a get-away this fall, the Methow Valley, the North Cascades Basecamp in Mazama, and the high elevation trails are amazing right now! Plan your fall travels to watch the colors on parade along the valley floor, or on the mountainsides.

As the first snows fall in the mountains and the larch, aspen and cottonwoods are turning golden, its time to plan your winter vacation.  If you are planning on joining us at the Basecamp, now is the time to finalize your reservations!  Call or email to confirm your calendar dates. 509/996-2334;
