This year the Pacific Northwest Roadsters will be going back in time to a part of the United States that is rich with the history of the famous Lewis & Clarke explorers!
You'll get to drive the rim of Hell's Canyon - The deepest gorge in North America.
You'll cruise along the twisty roads nestled on the banks of the Snake River and the Clearwater Rivers.
The Lewiston/Clarkston Valley will be the hub of activities for this year's Pacific Northwest Roadsters 4th Annual Regionals Meet and there are plenty of other activities to do in the area.
First, there is white water rafting or jet boats. Then there are an abundance of local wineries and even more in nearby Walla Walla, WA. There is also some great golfing, swimming, fishing, hot air balloons and even bungee jumping, hiking, biking and a host of other outdoor activities.
