Yakima Trolley
This is one of my shots from our trip to Yakima. There is an old trolley that is still running as a tourist attraction, but it has a lot of history behind it. And it was a lot of fun.

Wine-soaked Weekend

We are freshly back from our wonderful weekend in the Yakima Valley. We spent three days there and went to 13 different wineries and that was but scratching the surface. We will definitely be returning before too much time has passed.

And when we do we might just stay again at the Birchfield Manor. It was a little pricier than the places we normally stay, but we had a large jacuzzi tube in our room and the outstanding breakfast was included.

We also ate dinner there on Saturday night, and if you are in the area, I highly recommend the experience. The food was outstanding.

We took a short ride on the Yakima Valley Trolley as well, which was a lot of fun.

Our favorites of the wineries we visited were: Sagelands, Gilbert Cellars, and Windy Point. Although we bought some good wine at a few others as well (particularly the Grenache at the Alexandria Nicole Cellars.

I’ll be posting pictures from our trip soon, so check back often.

Washington Wine Country

Yakima Icon So I’ve just started planing our next mini vacation for June. We’re planing to go to Yakima to tour around wine country. My main resource for this trip right now is the Wine Trails NW web site and book.

I really can’t think why we have been there yet, it’s only a two and a half hour drive from Seattle.
