I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and have lived here pretty much all my life except for a couple of years in China and a few months in western New York. This is my home. There's no other place that I'd rather live. In Cheryl's Northwest, I'll share some of my favorite places with you.

Stagecoach stop reverts to meadow status
Sled Springs once offered
respite for weary travelers headed west to Elgin, Oregon. These travelers
arrived on wagons, stagecoach or horses beginning sometime before the turn of
the 20th century and continuing until about 1925.
It also was a railroad logging
camp, inhabited by about 300 people, after that. Today it is a quiet meadow,
part of the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest.
Sled Springs is located on
the highway that connects Asotin, Washington, with Enterprise, Oregon. The
highway is called 129 in Washington and 3 in Oregon.
