The Sequim Irrigation Festival celebrates the work that D.B. "Crazy" Callen and his partners did to design and develop the Irrigation Ditches that brought water from the Dungeness River to the parched prairie. The first headgate on the Dungeness River was lifted on May 1, 1895. On May 1, 1896 the first celebration took place at Crazy Callen's farm. This was the start of a tradition that would become the oldest continuing festival in Washington state. 2008 will be the 113th Sequim Irrigation Festival.

Dungeness kayaking is about having fun on the water. When I started kayaking, I realized the love I have for the water could be experienced not only on bright sunny days typically found in Sequim, but also cold rainy days typically found in Neah Bay or Lake Crescent on a snowy winter day. Kayaking is about being one with the natural wonders of the ocean. Kayaking allows the paddler to experience wildlife, some of which live all of their lives on the water. These thoughts are what stimulated me to start a kayak touring business. I want others to experience the natural wonders of the Dungeness Wildlife Refuge and the Pacific Northwest by feeling what a few hours on the water can bring to one's otherwise busy life. It truly is therapeutic and meditative.

The Olympic National Forest is part of an emerald paradise. The Forest is located on the Olympic Peninsula in the northwest corner of Washington State (the Evergreen State). The Olympic Peninsula is a unique geographic province consisting of five major landscape settings: temperate rain forest, rugged mountain terrain, large lowland lakes, cascading rivers, and saltwater beaches. Here the flora and fauna provide interest beyond the imagination. The Olympic Peninsula features over 2,132,300 acres of public Federal lands for visitors to enjoy. Of this area, over 633,600 acres are managed by the Olympic National Forest, which blankets the foothills of the Olympic Mountains and surrounds much of the Olympic National Park. In addition to the Federal land on the peninsula, there are recreation opportunities offered on state, county and private lands as well. The Forest offers a variety of recreation opportunities and facilities including: Campgrounds, Trails, Cabins, Picnic Sites, Points of Interest, Auto Tours, and Wildernesses. It is important for visitors to know which agency manages the site or lands they plan to visit because opportunities and regulations differ from one agency to another. To get more information, you may wish to contact any of the Olympic National Forest offices or visit our maps and publication section to order an Olympic Peninsula Recreation Map.

Olympic National Park
Park Road Conditions: 360.565.3131
Website: www.nps.gov/archive/olym/home.htm
Located in the northwest corner of Washington State, Olympic is an isolated remnant of wilderness that once covered all of the Pacific Northwest. Visit us and carry a touch of wilderness back to your home. Ninety-five percent of Olympic National Park is designated wilderness. Over 600 miles of trails provide access to these wild areas. The largest remaining undisturbed old-growth and temperate rain forests in the Northwest are found in Olympic National Park. Salmon still migrate seasonally to spawn in the clean, clear water of many Olympic rivers and streams. Jagged, glacier- capped peaks rise nearly 8,000 feet above sea level. Over 200 inches of precipitation falls annually on some of the higher peaks. Olympic National Park contains over 60 miles of wild Pacific coast--the largest section of wilderness coast in the lower 48 states. Archeological and historical records reveal clues about people who have lived here for the past 12,000 years.

The remote and secluded foothills above Sequim open to a high mountain valley where rolling green pastures give way to views of snowy peaks. On a wooded shoulder of Lost Mountain our small family winery has quietly produced limited bottlings of award winning robust red wines for over 26 years. For much of that time our delicious wines have been a well kept local secret. But with a growing number of regional and national awards covering the cedar walls of our hand built tasting room, word has trickled out. While we have become famous for our delicious "Distinguished Dago Red" handed down from our Italian ancestors for over three generations, we are equally well known for our Gold and Silver Medal winning Merlots, Cabernet Francs, and Cabernet Sauvignons, Sangiovese, and Syrah.
