In the Wenatchee Valley, we take it for granted that Washingtonians rely on our natural surroundings both for our quality of life and for building strong businesses. It is easy to accept as a given because we live in such a scenic area, but it is gratifying to see a governor in Olympia taking note as well.

Gov. Jay Inslee recently launched a blue-ribbon task force on outdoor recreation that will provide such a reminder, transforming the statewide conversation around this critical industry. Thanks, Governor, for bringing this economic conversation down to earth.
