Growing up in Brewster WA, I couldn't wait to move onto a new town that was bigger, and more to offer. What I didn't know was how much I'd actually miss it.

Small towns of Eastern WA

Brewster- the size of a twix bar and it's sister city, Pateros that sits 6 miles away, is about the size of a match stick. Obvously I am being funny, but seriously, they are small towns.

When I moved to Wenatchee, I thought to myself, "Man, I'm in the city now!" And for someone from such small areas, yes, Wenatchee is huge. Until you've lived here for 15 years.

Let's take a dive into some of the Ghost towns!
