Annual Cattle Drive Will Slow Traffic in Yakima River Canyon

Posted: Updated:

SELAH,WA-- If you plan to drive through the Yakima River Canyon this weekend, you might want to get a head start on your trip.

Saturday is the annual Yakima River Canyon Cattle Drive that moves hundreds of cattle from grazing land in Selah to their home on Mount Baldy Ranch.

The drive will slow down traffic between 11:30 and three in the afternoon on the five-mile stretch of roadway between Burbank creek road and the ranch.

This is a winter tradition for the Eaton family who own the cattle and brings them back to the ranch for calving.
