Yakima, WA


High Desert of Yakima Valley - 3/26/2013
Yakima is situated in the high desert, eastern elevations of the Cascade Mountain Range. Coming from the humid, eastern parts of the country, I was amazed at how enjoyable spring, summer and fall can be here in this much dryer climate. Especially the late spring and summer. Even 95 degrees out on the golf course brings little more than a dab of forehead persperation. Because of the rain sheild effects of the Cascade Mountains, the area if truely desert. I do miss the evergreen trees of Ohio, however, they are only about an hour away from Yakima, due west onto the mountain range. Yakima has a winter which is usually fairly short with a moderate amount of snow. That can change from year to year, however, and has been known to get occationally a large amount of snow and a longer, colder winter than usual.
