McManamy Cattle Drive
This video shows riders associated with the annual McManamy cattle drive, which occurs every year in the fall in Kittitas County. The cattle drive has its roots in the 1930s when cowboys would gather to ride the hills and valleys of the Reecer, First, and Nanum creek drainages in search of Hereford and Angus cattle. Joe McManamy, patriarch of the McManamy ranch, participated in the drive for decades.
