The tour skirts the low hills of Whiskey Range. Flumes cling to the hillside high above the river and remain the arteries of the Oroville-Tonasket Federal Irrigation Project, which furnishes water for 12,000 acres extending from the Canadian Boundary to five miles south of Tonasket. By the 1940s, about one-third of the area was planted in orchards.
