Default Wild hops

I just moved to Washington st I got 4 1st yr cascades going. I heard I am in the center for hop growing and would love for someone to point me in the right direction to hike to find wild hops. I wouldn't mind getting some from someone either send a message.

The hops region, Yakima county, is inland. But, hops do get around and there might be some nearby. I don't remember seeing any when I lived in Bremerton, but then I didn't see much while I was there except the shipyard.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

if you aren't a real plant person, late august - early september is the best time to locate them as the cones that have formed really stick out from the native vegetation making them easier to spot.

I've considered environmental sabatoge, planting hops off property with the intent of haveresting them later. I've considered it, doesn't mean I'll do it. Just one of the many evil thoughts that goes through my mind.
