Join me for one of the first drives of the year as we explore some interesting back roads in the north end of the Puget Sound.
This is a straightforward 50 plus mile drive along scenic back roads, to lunch at the famous Rhodes River Ranch, located just outside of Oso, WA. It is located on the second floor of a horse arena, with a glass wall for a view of the horses. There is no special event scheduled for this day, but people can be observed working their horses from time to time.
There is a Senior Menu, $6.95 for a good-sized sandwich and fries. The excellent standard lunch menu is in the $9-$12 range, including gluten-free items. This is big-city food at country prices, folks.
From here, everyone can make their way home through Arlington to Highway 9, and from there, connect to I-5 if desired. Of course one can always trace the route in reverse, or take the alternate parallel back roads per a supplied map.
We will meet up at 9:30 AM at the Monroe Chevron on Highway 2 at the east end of Monroe. Driver’s meeting will be at 9:45 for a 10 a.m. commencement of activities.
514 E Main St
Monroe, WA 98272
And end up at:
Rhodes River Ranch
22016 Entsminger Rd
Arlington, WA 98223
This will be about a two-hour drive with a 15 minute rest stop about halfway through.
Directions from I-5:
Take the highway 2 exit east in Everett. About 40 miles from the exit.
Drive north on Highway 522 to the end in Monroe and take Highway 2 east.
Hope to see you there!
