      The X Controversy

      Walking Adventures International...History, Culture, Scenery, AND
      Walking...more than just a walking tour! According to Rudyard Kipling,
      "East is east and West is west and never the twain shall meet." The
      ancient land of China is quickly changing, however, embracing new market
      ideologies and technologies, and in many ways, reaching out to "meet"
      the West. Now is the time to experience this venerable land! Our duo of
      Mini-Adventures this fall offers travelers the opportunity to discovery
      two distinct and powerfully significant areas of China: Beijing & the
      Great Wall (4 IVV walks) and Xi'an & the Yangtze River (2 IVV walks).
      Experience these regions of China separately or combine them into one,
      unforgettable 13-day Asian Adventure! October 13 - 25, 2006. Call

      Northwest Regional Conference, July 20-23, 2006 Seaside, Oregon
      Events: Open July 20-23, 2006
      NW06-73818 Ecola Park to Tillamook Head and Return
      This walk starts at Ecola Park. There is a $3.00 day use fee. It starts
      at Ecola Park and visits the overlook and you can see what Clark and
      Sacajawea saw when they went to Cannon Beach to see the whale. You will
      go first to Indian Beach. There are many roots on the trail as well as
      much short up and down. Rated 3+. From Indian Beach you will go up onto
      Tillamook Head to see a hiker camp. This gives you the best view of any
      of the Lighthouse on Tillamook Rock. Ascend the Head on a service road
      but descend on a natural trail. The trail takes you back to Indian Beach
      and return over the same trail to Ecola Park. As you return to Ecola
      Park, you will get an idea what Clark and party saw.
      NW06-73817 Seaside to Tillamook Head and Return
      Drive past the Seaside Cove up to the trail head. Rated 3. This is
      natural trail that zigzags to the top of Tillamook Head. Route turns
      around at the Elmer Feldenheimer Forest Preserve. All natural trail. The
      hair pin turns take you through deep forest. Although Clark and party
      started to Cannon Beach via the beach, they had to scale Tillamook Head
      (presumably because of the tide). Walk will go to Clark’s lookout point,
      where they reputedly finished their ascent of Tillamook Head.
      NW06-73822 Fort to Sea Trail
      This is the approximate route that the Clark party took to go to Seaside
      where they set up camp to boil water for salt. This walk is a one-way
      walk. You MUST car pool. There are two ways to accomplish this. You can
      drive to the Fred Meyer store in Warrenton and then car pool to Ft
      Clatsop. At the end of the walk at Sunset Beach, you can catch a county
      bus back to Fred Meyer store and thus car pool back to Ft Clatsop. OR
      you can car pool by parking one car at Sunset Beach and another car at
      Ft Clatsop. When you finish the walk, ride back to Ft Clatsop. The route
      goes across a wetland on a boardwalk and into the woods to cross Clatsop
      Ridge. The route goes under Hwy 101 and then on to a sand dune trail to
      Sunset Beach. While at Ft Clatsop, visit the Interpretive Center for a
      look at the reconstructed fort and at the waterfront on the Lewis and
      Clark River where you can see canoes like the ones used by the Corps of
      NW06-73819 Bike Event
      This route is flat. It starts on Fort Stevens and goes out along the
      Columbia River’s south jetty. Although this is technically not “in the
      footsteps” of Lewis and Clark, it is a good opportunity to ride along
      where it is cool and where you can see the mouth of the Columbia and the
      Pacific Ocean.
      NW06-73815 Ilwaco (Port of Ilwaco to North Head Lighthouse and return)
      The walk starts at the Pavilion at the Port of Ilwaco and goes along the
      scenic walkway with the Ilwaco fishing fleet on one side and many shops
      and restaurants on the other. The route then goes to the start of the
      Discovery Trail, a gravel trail through woods to Beard’s Hollow. From
      Beard’s Hollow the route goes to the West Wind Trail through a beautiful
      forest where you can hear the ocean roaring to the North Head
      Lighthouse. From the lighthouse, you get magnificent views of the coast
      line where the Lewis and Clark expedition first saw the Pacific. The
      return route go by the Lighthouse Keepers houses and returns to Ilwaco
      on the West Wind and Discovery Trails. You will pass the Ilwaco museum
      where a Lewis and Clark display is on exhibit and then back to the
      start/finish. Trail is rated 3+ and is 12km.
      NW06-73939 Swim Event
      This event will be held at the beach on July 21. Drive to the start
      point and wade in the surf for 300 meters (150 meters each way). Good
      way to cool off on a hot summer day.
      NW06-73940 Swim Event
      This event will be held at the beach on July 22. Drive to the start
      point and wade in the Surf for 300 meters (150 meters each way). Good
