Road Scholar
Program #16158RJ
4 Days | 3 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Songbirds, Butterflies and Wildflowers
Sessions begin with fascinating slide presentations on the spectacular natural world of the Methow Valley. Then experience the springtime splendor of the dramatic Cascade Mountain setting on easy, naturalist-guided hikes on surrounding trails.

NW History in Story and Song
Seafaring explorers, trappers, miners, homesteaders — each helped settle the Northwest and each wrote songs to tell their tales. Taught by one of the West Coast's favorite folksingers, the course is a mix of fascinating stories and lively songs.

Life in the Methow Valley
The Methow Valley has a colorful history right out of the "Wild West." A longtime resident will tell of the mining boom of the late 1890s, of the sprawling ranches of the Methow, and what its like to live in this beautiful, secluded valley.


Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
