  • Hi All, I am glad to announce that the Hood River Art Club is again showing their work at the fall festival in Odell at the Fair grounds. We are in the gym. A few of our members are from Snowden and White Salmon! Hope to see you all there !

  • Has anyone had problems with candidate sign theft? We own a triangle of property just west of Cottontail Ridge Road, 3 miles up Snowden. This is private property that we put our signs on and we have twice had them stolen. If you happen to see anyone taking these signs down, please let us know? There are more signs with the same candidates…[Read more]

  • I’m thinning out my strawberry patch and have lots of plants to give away. Call me at 493-2006 to claim some of them.

  • The big brown llama that some of us have seen roaming the neighborhood showed up in my front yard this morning. Anybody know who the owner is? My dog insisted on chasing him off our property, so watch out on Snowden Road please!

    • Dawn, about where was that llama?

      • About 12 miles up Snowden, just past the Sleepy Hollow Road turnoff. But that was on Friday. I’ve also seen the llama farther up Snowden, and have heard reports from people on Sleepy Hollow and Lyle-Snowden who have seen him (or her). I have a friend who already has a few other llamas and might be willing to take another one, and I also know…[Read more]

    • Just a few days ago I saw someone fetching him with a trailer on Card Road. He’s been out and about for a while then.

  • Representatives from EMS, WS Pool Park District and Klickitat County Fire District #3 spoke last night at the Cherry Lane Fire Hall #32. Attendees appreciated the chance to have adequate time for discussion of each of the 3 ballot measures. To date, there has been no other site allowing these 3 groups the opportunity to share their knowledge at…[Read more]

  • I want to post information about our Klickitat County Fire District3 Capitol Bond which we will vote on in the November 6 election. The key fire levy questions are answered briefly but there is more information on the website
    1. What is the bond money to be used for? All bond money will be used for purchase of safety equipment,…[Read more]

  • The Snowden Community Council meeting for October is this Thursday evening, the 4th, at 7 PM at the Cherry Lane Fire Station.
    Everyone is welcome. The agenda and the minutes of the September annual meeting can be found on this site under the tab “Resources/Info” and then click on Snowden Council.

  • The Snowden Community Council is sponsoring a forum regarding the three local ballot measures affecting our area on Wednesday, Oct.10th, 7:00 P.M. at the Cherry Lane Fire Station. The purpose of the Council’s forum is solely to provide fact-based information to the Snowden community. Speakers, whether subject to Washington Public Disclosure…[Read more]

  • We got an unannounced visit from two Forest Service employees around 7 p.m. a couple of night ago. They said they were “going around to all the neighbors,” passing out information about prescribed burns planned for this fall. Three of the burn areas are along Courtney Road, and a fourth is near Bristol. They are also planning some pile burning at…[Read more]

  • Did somebody hit a deer on Snowden Road on Friday night, in the northbound lane just past the turnoff for Sleepy Hollow Road? I found a lot of debris on the road the next morning: broken glass, a Japanese hydraulic gauge, a heavy metal base with telescoping poles, a few plastic parts. That curve is a spot where deer frequently cross the road.

    Our neighbors dog is missing. He is a small pug mix black dog with white and he went missing late this afternoon. The nephew is house sitting and is naturally distressed. If you see a little black and white dog please call my number. This is not the dog you usually see running on the road on lower Snowden although looks similar enough.…[Read more]


    Hi neighbors. I thought I’d post this article that appeared in the Sentinel and the Enterprise – in case you haven’t seen it. If you would like more information on the EMS Levy Renewal, I would be happy to…[Read more]

    This morning, we found a pile of bear scat by the back step. Bruin seems to be looking for “things” to fatten up with for his long sleep. We found scat earlier this year in the driveway but that was about 300 feet away. This was right at the back door. I loaded the Winchester just in case!

  • Thanks everyone, we got somebody 🙂

  • Hello Snowden Road! In a very last-minute attempt to take one trip this season for our own sanity, Brian and I are searching for someone to look after the dogs and animals at our ranch (sheep, chickens, ducks, rabbits) from Fri, Sep 21st through Mon, Sept 24th. We are located around mile 14 on Snowden, and we’d always prefer to have it be someone…[Read more]

  • Snowden Community Council’s Annual Membership Meeting is this Thursday, September 6th, at 7:00 PM at the Cherry Lane Fire Station. All residents are welcome. It’s a great time to meet some neighbors, find out what the council has been working on during the past year, and bring up issues important to you. And you can submit your name if you’re…[Read more]

  • Is there a way for the Snowden Community to exert some pressure on the Klickitat Road folks to implement some kind of permanent fix for lower Staats Road? Not-with-standing that this road is the “GPS Preferred” route to upper Snowden (every winter it seems we have to “rescue” out-of-area folks relying on their GPS), serves as the primary access…[Read more]

    • Commissioner Dave Sauter talked on the issue of some road improvements at his last visit to the Snowden Community Council. I don’t recall specifically that Staats was mentioned as he was mostly responding to someone’s question about Courtney Road. He says its quite a lengthy process to get a project on the 3, 5 or 10 years plans, but Courtney IS…[Read more]

      • As I mentioned in my post, Thursday evenings have always been a non-starter for my participation. I’ll pursue directly with the commissioners — though, given the influence of big timber in the county, I don’t much expect anything to happen with regards to holding the perpetrators of the slide accountable…

  • I just bought salad and some veggies and didn’t have to drive all the way into town. Wow! What a treat that is. Here’s a shout out to They’re on Pearce Road. 509-493-1301

    • You can buy directly from them at their farm? What hours? Do they sell meats? (Asking because we grow most of our own veggies.) I checked the website but it only has info about buying from them via a CSA or the White Salmon farmers’ market.

      • Hi Dawn: if you are looking for locally raised meat, check out Treebird Organics in Troutlake. They do a drop off at the old Solstice place in Bingen every other Friday. They sell pastured beef, pork, lamb and chicken. I have been buying from them for the last year and am quite happy with their meats.

      • Best to call first. And I’m pretty sure they don’t do meat. I bought direct at their farm and they didn’t seem put out at all. Awfully nice folks.

      • If you’re looking for Snowden meat, try They’re right on Snowden Crusher Road. Call (541) 806-2718 Here’s a bit from their Facebook page “Our 21 acre farm is nestled between Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams just 12 miles NE of White Salmon, Washington. We raise pastured pork and poultry.

        Our animals also…[Read more]

      • Hi Dawn, HorseRadish Ranch up here in Snowden has wonderful pasture raised Poultry, Lamb & Rabbitt plus Eggs. Laura sells at the Hood River Market on Saturday & you can order direct or CSA. Her email is

  • Updated – White Salmon Valley Pool Metro Park District

    Hello All – We attended the White Salmon Pool Committee meeting this week and obtained some more information about the pool that we wanted to share.

    1) The latest cost estimates for a new pool are $1.7 million to $1.9 million. The committee stated that they have private donation…[Read more]

    • Thanks very much for investing your time in research, reading and writing such detailed information. This has helped me make a decision.
