Yakima River Canyon


The short and sublime Yakima River Canyon Scenic Byway, also known
as Canyon Road or SR-821, this byway is a dazzling alternative to driving
I-82 between Ellensburg and Yakima. A 22-mile trip that is scenic yeararound, Canyon Road follows the Yakima River on a lonely, curvy twolane road between high-desert sage-covered hills.
