In this edition of Northwest Now, we travel to Port Angeles where the Western Flyer is currently undergoing restoration. The vessel gained notoriety when legendary writer John Steinbeck traveled with the crew to the Sea of Cortez, inspiring him to write about the adventure.
We’ll talk to the people working to restore the ship and have more on what’s next for this iconic vessel.
