      YRE Updates:

      Grand Coulee Dam Seasonal Y1921 has to be closed due to construction.
      The original closing date was November 30, 2012. Construction won't be
      complete until after the closure date. This is the Grand Coulee Dam, WA
      seasonal.

      YR0013 in Arlington, WA. Closed immediately.
      Port Gamble, Washington, walk (YRE 1685) is closed until further notice
      due to fire danger.
      CVC's Scatter Creek walk - register Rochester) will close Sept. 22nd for
      hunting. this is instead of Sept. 30th.

      Washougal year-round walk trail changes:
      The Gibbons Creek trail at Steigerwald Lake NWR is closed at this time,
      affecting the subject YRE 5/10km routes (remote starts only). A large
      wildfire burned 140 acres last Friday. It started on the east side of
      the trailhead; winds pushed the fire across the wooden boardwalk near
      the trailhead entrance, and then spread rapidly to the west. Repairs are
      currently being assessed and the refuge and trailhead are closed until
      further notice. The manager "hopes to have a plan for reopening in place
      by late next week," which is around October 20th. Be aware that is just
      a plan; it could be weeks or months to finish the reconstruction.
      In the meantime, walkers can do the 5k or an 11/13km route beginning
      directly from Papa's Ice Cream. An 11km route is possible by simply
      accessing the Columbia River dike trail and walking its length to the
      fish ladder (Mile Post 2) and back, without taking the turn through the
      wildlife refuge area.
      Notes will be in the walk box and I have already updated the walk
      details on the AVA website explaining these temporary changes. Will you
      please inform the walking community?
      Washougal YR1968 (AVA 90507)

      10/27/2012
      City / State: Woodland, WA
      Event Name: Cedar Creek Grist Mill
      Event Type: Walk
      Event ID: 89533
      SATURDAY ONLY -- OCTOBER 27, 2012
      START/FINISH: Green Mountain School, 13105 NE Grinnell Road, Woodland, WA.
      TIMES: Start any time between 10am - 1pm; Finish by 4pm.
      DISTANCE and RATING: 12km (7.4 miles), Rated 2B.
      TRAIL DESCRIPTION: Walk on rural asphalt roads with gentle rise and
      fall, curving through pastoral and forested areas along Cedar Creek.
      Midpoint is a short out and back on a steep hill to the historic Cedar
      Creek Grist Mill and charming covered wooden bridge. Enjoy colorful
      autumn foliage along the route.
      The Friends of Cedar Creek will be at the mill from 1-4 today. See
      working demonstrations, hear historical anecdotes, and learn about the
      wheat and corn milled on-site using only the power from Cedar Creek.
      The Cedar Creek Grist Mill is the only grain grinding mill in Washington
      state that has maintained its original structural integrity. The mill
      uses large, heavy stones for grinding and is powered by water. The mill
      grinds a variety of whole-grain flours and cornmeal, and has been known
      to grind about 8,000 pounds of apples at its annual Apple Press,
      scenting the air with cider.
      The mill was built in 1876 by George Woodham and his two sons. In the
      1950's, the State Fisheries Department bought the property and built a
      fish ladder. In 1961 the Fort Vancouver Historical Society leased the
      mill and placed it on the National Register of Historic Places. A group
      of local residents formed "The Friends of Cedar Creek Grist Mill" in
      1980 and authentically restored the mill in 1989 as a project to
      celebrate the Washington State Centennial.
      The Cedar Creek Grist Mill is now a working museum, where tours are
      given to show the inside workings of the mill during its heyday. The
      adjacent covered wooden bridge was constructed in 1995. This charming
      rural setting draws visitors from all over the United States.
      FEES: AVA Credit Only is $3. No refunds. Non-credit walkers are welcome
      to participate at no charge. All must register, carry, and return a
      start card. "B" award is available from a previous event -- a detailed
