We love this time of year! The flowers are blooming, the sun feels great, and the horses love love love to get out on the trails. Real estate in our area is booming due to the recreational opportunities throughout the year – hiking, biking, fishing, and tube floating in the summer, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling in the winter. Fortunately/unfortunately, Kittitas County’s secret is out and demand for Cle Elum’s homes have been flying off the market due to our access to recreation and the amazing sunny days.
Whether you live here full-time or you have a second home here, if you haven’t had the opportunity to explore the area on horseback yet, you owe it to yourself to make it a priority this year. There is nothing like it!
If you are a beginner, we highly recommend Three Peaks Outfitters just outside of Cle Elum. Scott and Michelle Montgomery will take great care of you and Scott is a long-time friend of mine. You will be in great hands!
They offer short trail rides to full day wilderness trips, extended wilderness trips, fishing and hunting trips, and yes, even sleigh rides.
