The city’s arts scene is rapidly growing, with live theatre, movies and more offered at the historic Roxy Theatre downtown. As such, Morton is the cultural center of eastern Lewis County.
Perhaps the most vibrant of all the summer celebrations in the area, the Morton Loggers Jubilee — “the Grandaddy of All Logging Shows” — brings competitors in time-tested logging contests to Lewis County every year. Come watch the log rolling, choker setting, speed climbing and more that make up the centerpiece of the festival; stay for the evening music and celebrations along the main stretch in town.
Morton also offers easy access to several motels and campsites to extend your stay — the perfect way to enjoy the vastness of an area that must be explored over more than just one day.
How to get there: From Interstate 5, take U.S. Highway 12 and travel along the White Pass Scenic Byway east about 30 miles, then bear north on State Route 7, which runs straight through the heart of Morton. From Yakima, simply take U.S. Highway 12 over White Pass and continue for about 50 miles until you reach the SR7 intersection.
