Meadowstone Labyrinth in hidden eastern Cascades valley

leave a comment »



On a recent vacation in the beautiful Methow Valley on the east side of the Cascades in north central Washington State, I had an opportunity to visit a hidden, though public labyrinth.

Several miles out of Winthrop up out of the east side of the Methow River is Dave Ward’s 17 acres with Meadowstone Labyrinth set in the middle of it.  Dave modeled it on the one at Chartres Cathedral in France and built it over a period of three years in the mid-2000’s.

For many years a river rafting guide, for his labyrinth, Ward collected over 1,600 river washed rocks from 18 different rivers in the western United States – 40 tons of rocks, some individually over 100 pounds, many from the Methow River.
