All Wheelers Olmstead Place State Park Tour (11-11-09)
 
All Wheelers Off Road Club -
Olmstead Place State Park Tour
Nov 11th, 2009


On Veteran's Day Wednesday November 11th, 2009 we met up at Olmstead Place State Park for a tour from the Park Ranger which is our friend and an AWORC member.
Olmstead Place State Park is a 217-acre day-use park that features a working pioneer farm. The park is located off I-90 a few miles east of Ellensburg Washington.

Down at the lower end of the park Foxracer gave us a tour through the old buildings and showed us the equipment used in the old days.
Here are some pictures. Foxracer told us what all these things were and did, but I can not do as well repeating it.

The kids loved the wagon ride and had fun running around. The tour was great.
If you are into history this place is a must see.

Thank you Foxracer for the great tour and wagon ride. We hope to come back when it is warmer.

Thanks Clay for sharing this. We love going to see the older places. In fact Earl's grandparents had horses and wagons and had a lot of the same things that you took pictures of in the barn etc.
