About CashmereNamed for south Asia's fabled Vale of Kashmir, Cashmere, in the heart of Wenatchee Valley, is surrounded by fruit orchards. The town's roots can be traced back to a Roman Catholic mission established in 1863. With its lampposts and covered sidewalks, the downtown business district has a bit of a pioneer look. The sandstone towers of Peshastin Pinnacles State Park, 2 miles northwest on US 2/97 at 7201 N. Dryden Rd., are a popular rock climbing area; phone (509) 884-8702.
