On the other side of the pass, the landscape changes from the thick, damp forest into one of the driest prairie deserts I think I have ever seen. It was a big surprise to me, and I remember thinking "how the hell did they determine this area would be good for hops?" Upon arrival to town, I spied some vast acreage of what I assumed were hops and set off to go see some bines. Interestingly enough, I drove around for 3 hours in endless apple orchards and through the small, sleepy town of Yakima before even seeing the word "hop" on anything, let alone a bine, hop yard, or big processing plant. If I didn't know this was the center of the hop universe, I'd never believe it.
