LIND – Dozens of John Wayne Pioneer Wagons and Riders members will be traversing Adams County this week as part of their annual wagon train.
The group set out last week on a 17-day ride that started in Easton and ends in Tekoa on Sunday, June 5. The wagon train follows the John Wayne Trail, now called the Palouse to Cascades Trail State Park by the state.
“It’s been good,” organization spokesman Tom Short said Monday. “We’re out of Snoqualmie Pass.”
The route takes the group to the rebuilt trestle over the Columbia River at Beverly, then east to Othello and Warden.
