Welcome, wagons!

WALLA WALLA — If you are the shy type, don’t sit on top of a stagecoach. “People always look,” said Daryl Hopson, as heads turned to watch him guiding the bright red and yellow carriage around the county fairgrounds last week. The stagecoach Hopson was driving that morning was no reproduction. Brought to Walla Walla in 1862, it was one of two that carried passengers on regular runs from Walla Walla to Lewiston and Orofino, Idaho, and back.
