(Joe Williams Photo) PRIMITIVE PARK for a weekend or a lifetime Amid the NATURAL SCENIC BEAUTY of the WENATCHEE NATIONAL FOREST is a Valley hidden from the tourists and travelers. The Wenatchee River flows through this valley enroute to TUMWATER CANYON. We are TRULY FORTUN- ATE to be able to offer DEEDED TRACTS in this area of NATURAL SPLENDOR and ABUNDANT WILDLIFE. At present we are building narrow WINDING ROADS to service the sites. We should have finished weeks ago but good de- velopments are like good wines -- both take extra time.

No need to HURRY, there are plenty of tracts, only the BEST ONES GO FIRST. They are PRICED FROM $495, with 5 year contracts available. You can CAMP FREE on any site by contacting our office for a permff. However, we do reserve the right to eject any undesirable campers.
