More Info Follow Highway 26 west out of town to the 23,100-acre Columbia National Wildlife Refuge. Bird-watchers will enjoy getting a glimpse of red-tailed hawks, ravens, swallows, and great-horned and barn owls as they fly in to make their nests in the ledges and cracks of the cliffs in the area. A large variety of ducks can also be seen migrating to the refuge during the summer months. Continue west on Highway 26 to Vantage, home of two rather unusual tourist attractions worth your time. From the Wanapum Vista lookout on I-90, just three miles east of town, you can see the “Grandfather Cuts Loose the Horses” sculpture overlooking the Columbia River. To the west of the interstate lies the 7,500-acre Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park, the only place where there are petrified ginkgo trees. Some of the fossilized trees that are buried in hardened lava are believed to have been alive more than 15 million years ago. Also of interest are miles of hiking trails, one with petroglyphs along the way. To the south is the irrigated and fertile Yakima Valley, home of more than 20 wineries. A vintage dinner train will take you on a roundtrip from the town of Yakima to the valley and back. In town, you can see Native American artifacts, agricultural equipment, and horse-drawn vehicles at the Yakima Valley Museum.
