The sport of World Extreme Rock Crawling or W.E. ROCK as it is known to our fans is all about challenging driver and machine. Competitors build amazing vehicles to drive over the most extreme obstacles our world-renowned course designers can dream up. You will see vehicles perform maneuvers you never thought possible. Conquering large boulders, steep climbs, rock ledges, and massive drops, all while avoiding strategically placed cones.  Join us at Broken Boulder Farm, 290 Pipeline Road, in Goldendale, for an exciting weekend.  www.werocklive.com

Take a step back in time and experience a slice of country life that is fading quickly. Vintage Dufur Days celebrates its roots in Oregon agriculture with a weekend of old-time activities.
