If you explore the Cascades with Chinook ATV, you'll spend the day with trained wilderness first responders who can administer first aid if needed, and taking 4-wheelers means you won't be too tired to make it to the top.
Owner Anthony Vega, like a lot of out professionals his age, occasionally ends up an unintentional ambassador for the LGBTQ community. "Most people don't know I'm gay (initially) but people find out when you spend a whole weekend with them. I've changed a lot of minds."
Vega says it's been a process, though. "Where we're located in Skykomish Valley, I've lived here for 14 years now? And it took a long time to be able to be comfortable being out. And starting a business was a whole 'nother thing. It took a long time to be accepted and feel like it's a safe place to live and operate a business. But that's behind us now, I think times have changed."
