Finding the ship that flew

There are dozens of things to see and do on the Lewis and Clark Trail Highway in southwest Washington, but surely one of the most unique lies just outside a tiny berg called Knappton on the bank of the Columbia River. If you head west from Knappton Cove you might spot a rusty barge parked in a shallow bay called Hungry Harbor. There is something else very interesting about this harbor, and fearless field guide Erich Ebel discovers another stunning bit of Washington state history in its final resting place along the Columbia.

Finding the ship that flew

Visit Old Alder before it vanishes…again

The term "ghost town" in today's time has evolved from its more literal interpretation to describe any small town that has been abandoned or vacated. In fact, there's a whole culture of folks dedicated to discovering and exploring ghost towns and their history. Most of the time, however, towns devoid of inhabitants have nowhere to grow but older. Not so for old Alder. Join your fearless field guide Erich Ebel as he takes you on a beautiful drive through east Pierce County, into and out of the Ohop Valley and along the Nisqually River to Alder Lake, a body of water made artificially larger after the construction of Alder Dam – the same structure that turned Old Alder into a ghost town in 1944.

Visit Old Alder before it vanishes…again

Discovering the creatures of the Northwest Trek trails

In the 1930’s, a husband and wife team of conservationists purchased over 400 acres of desolate, charred land in south Pierce County, Washington. Fast forward 80 years (and factor in the meticulous planning, fastidious nurturing, generous donating, and fortuitous timing), and today, people of all ages can visit Northwest Trek Wildlife Park. In this episode, your fearless field guide Erich Ebel takes you on a tour of the park that’sRead More

Of pork and politics: Washington in the Pig War

We're all familiar with the historic events that led to the American Revolution, when the American Colonies seceded from rule by Great Britain. Somewhat less well known are the reasons behind the second war between England and the U.S...the War of 1812. But it's unlikely you can find very many people who can tell you about the third war between these two superpowers, which took place - or, more accurately, almost took place - in the San Juan Islands in 1859. Your fearless field guide Erich Ebel tells the story of The Pig War, otherwise known as The Bloodless War or The War That Wasn't.

The deadliest bridge collapse in Washington state history

On Wednesday, January 3rd, 1923, Cowlitz County Commissioner-elect Benjamin Barr sat in the back seat of his vehicle, when his driver – Arleigh Millard – felt an unsettling shudder through the springs in his seat. Miller glanced nervously at Barr through the rear-view mirror, unable to move the vehicle forward. The pair were stuck atop the Allen Street Bridge here in Kelso, Washington, when seconds later it all came crashingRead More

Visiting Walla Walla’s historic Marcus Whitman hotel

Visitors to eastern Washington often find themselves drawn to the rich viticultural tasting opportunities found in Walla Walla wine country. There are literally dozens of wineries, tasting rooms and wine bars dotting the historic downtown area. It’s a superb example of a rural agricultural community that has revitalized its downtown core through business and tourism development. And the best place to stay in Walla Walla, by far, is the Marcus Whitman Hotel. Your fearless field guide Erich Ebel escorts you through the historic halls and into the palatial parlor on this exclusive Washington Our Home tour.

Remembering Bud Holland. He flew B-52s.

Today is June 24, 2014. It was on this date twenty years ago that my next-door neighbor crashed one of the biggest, most powerful aircraft ever built into a nuclear storage facility, leaving his kids fatherless and his wife a widow. With more than 5,000 flight hours under his belt, U.S. Air Force Colonel Bud Holland took his last flight on this day in 1994. I was 19, home fromRead More
