Banks Lake rock, September 2010
Made a couple trips out to the Banks Lake/Grand Coulee Dam area to soak-in some end-of-summer rays and explore the scenery and nearby rock climbing. If the setting alone, not to mention the limitless climbing potential here isnít enough to invigorate your soul, then might I suggest a visit to your psychiatrist? Granted, the drive out here is a fair bit longer than your tried-and-true Leavenworth weekend getaway. But if are looking to escape the autumnal Seattle rains for the weekend and have tired of the same old same old, you could do worse than spend some time climbing granite in this unlikely desert oasis.
