Osprey Park, Sultan

Thousands of pink salmon fill the Sultan River to spawn (on odd years). This 85-acre park offers front-row seats to this phenomenon as well as over 2 miles of walking trails to the Sultan River; most of which  are accessible to wheelchairs and baby strollers. Let the kids get their wiggles out in the baseball field, basketball court or playground. Join hundreds of other guests here at the Annual Return of the Salmon Celebration, each September. 

Make sure to stop in downtown Sultan and check out the specialty shops, including the unique business incubator GROW Washington, where you will find locally made products ranging from furniture to jewelry. Sultan’s Galaxy Chocolates on Main Street is locally owned and operated, and specializes in gourmet handmade chocolates and truffles, espresso, ice cream, fresh baked goods, and other goodies! Sit down for an espresso and pastry, taste one of its infamous truffles, or stock up on a variety of chocolates to take home!

Last year was a banner year for Quail in Okanogan Country, so you can spot quite a few this winter. Read More >>>>
Eagles Preparing for Winter
Eagles can be found in every region of the Loop, and winter migration can bring hundreds of birds from Alaska to the local river valleys, like the Skagit, Methow, Wenatchee and Columbia. Depending on the year, migration usually begins in December, and the Skagit Valley Eagle Festival runs weekends in January. When snow begins to melt, most of the eagles head back north, but occasionally a pair will build a nest and set up residence – which can be a wonderful opportunity to observe these magnificent creatures.

The History of Bigfoot (and How to Find Them)
“Mentally, emotionally, and spiritually prepare yourself for your encounter . You must learn to listen to the heartbeat of the true land that is distant and removed from the sense- and mind-numbing cities, towns, and villages.” - Robert W. Morgan, Bigfoot Observer’s Field Manual Read More >>>>
