Ashford

Adjacent to the Nisqually (Longmire) entrance to Mount Rainier National Park, it's hardly surprising that Ashford draws around 2 million visitors every year. Long a transit route for local aboriginal tribes, its more recent history began when it became a logging terminal on the rail line and developed into a tourism hot spot with lodges, restaurants, groceries, and gift shops along Highway 706.
