We leave Duthler Ford and turn left onto 28th St. At Broadmoor Ave. we turn left again and head south to Patterson Ave. where we bear right and continue south to Bass Rd. At Payne Lake Rd. we turn left and head south again. At Bowens Mill Rd. we turn left then make a quick right onto Briggs Rd. This twists its way around to 611 where we turn left and head south to 406, where we veer left and blaze over to Wall Lake Rd. and The Gilmore classic car museum for a free tour. From The Gilmore we retrace our steps onto 406 and follow it to Marsh Rd. (State Rd. 623). At 133 Ave. we turn left and then back right onto Kalamazoo St. At 142 Ave. we turn left again and head to Door Dairy Ranch where we get free ice cream. Car and ice cream-tell me how one can go wrong there.

Mustang Northwest Roundup
This is our 5th Anniversary Pony Trails adventure, and what an adventure it will be indeed. Our theme this year is "Taking the Horses Back to Nature," and our record to beat this year is 231 cars, so come one, come all!

We will be starting out at the Evergreen Speedway at the Monroe Fairgrounds to avoid as many morning commuters as possible. For those who don't know where Evergreen Speedway or Monroe is, we will have a volunteer lead a group there from Bellevue Community College. This group will leave the college promptly at 8 a.m., so don't be late! Please arrive at the speedway with a full tank of gas no later than 9 a.m., because we will cover a lot of ground (approximately 220 miles). From Monroe Speedway we wander northwest through the Port Susan area to our first destination, Stanwood, for lunch. Once we eat, we head east, into the Northern Cascade Mountain Range to Newhalem, home to Seattle City Light's George Dam. This town has several attractions and activities which include short hikes, a dam tour, museum, waterfalls, and much more. We will then head back to Asbury Field in Marysville for a final roundup and closing ceremony.
