Umtanum VanSlam


Ok, first of all, is it Umptanum or Umtanum?  Well both spellings seem to be used interchangeably.  So you can decide which one you like and go with it.

With the Dudes out of school for spring break and the weather forecast  saying sunny and warm, it was the perfect time for a VanSlam.

We traveled over the mountains and into the Ellensburg – Yakima canyon to a BLM recreation site called Big Pines for an overnighter.  The next day it was up on the ridges for a hike to Umtanum Falls.

So here is a little movie we made of our adventure.  Hope you enjoy it.

    Another excellent Kat Production! You are making memories my friend, and loved the family band. Just bought a Ukulele a few weeks ago, and learning to play. Beach Boys and Ukulele go very well together, and the little guy sounds better then Brian Wilson!

      Ah, thanks Jack. Good luck with your uke, those little instruments have certainly brought a lot of joy to our lives. That’s Cade strumming the beach boys tune, and he’s learned all those chords in just the last few months.
