A wilderness adventure is taking hiker Joe McConaughy border to border as he honors the life of a young cousin and raises money to help families of others facing cancer. Above, the Seattle native approaches a Pacific Crest Trail rendezvous point. He crossed into Washington state on Friday. Helping are three friends who meet him with supplies.
A fast-moving wildfire, separate from the Carlton Complex fire, started Friday afternoon in Okanogan County. Part of Highway 20 is closed and evacuation orders are in place for some areas.
