  2. From the Wild People – between the towns of Methow and Carlton.
  3. Ask Me – north of the ranger station in Winthrop.
  4. Is This Feeling About the West Real? – also north of the ranger station in Winthrop.
  5. Where We Are – near the suspension footbridge east of Mazama.
  6. Silver Star – in front of Silver Star mountain.
  7. A Valley Like This – at the scenic overlook at Washington Pass.
