Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
On Saturday March 16th, 2019 the Selah Sweets Leprechaun took a trip up Chinook Pass looking for his pot of Gold. He came across this place called “Gold Creek“. That sounded like a great place to look and have breakfast too.
The Leprechaun had himself a great meal and then said, “It’s just better here”. He knew he had to move on looking for his pot of gold again.
Here are some photos of the Leprechaun that found Gold Creek:
On March 9th 2019, we took a road trip in the Jeep Wrangler to Leavenworth to visit for a day.
We left Selah around 11 AM. It was very cold and gray. The trees around Ellensburg were white with frost. As we dropped off the north slope of Blewett Pass, the clouds opened up and we had beautiful blue sky.
Once in Leavenworth, we had a hard time finding a parking space. The town was full of people having fun. We parked down the road a few blocks away from downtown.
Our first place to visit, as always, was the Munchen Haus for bratwurst and a beer. We really enjoy the Munchen Haus food, beer, and beer garden atmosphere.
After lunch we took a look in some of the shops. We took a break to have a beer and warm up at Uncle Uli’s.
We took another walk checking out shops. Some of them are gone or moved from our last trip to Leavenworth. We stopped at The Loft for some food, drinks and to warm up.
We then looked in a few more shops but had to find heat again since the temperature was dropping. We stopped from drinks at Leavenworth Sausage Garten, by Cured. We warmed up under the heaters. There was a guy playing all kinds of songs.
Next we went over the the Icicle Brewing Company. Inside was warm and had a guy playing country music. We stay for awhile there before walking back to the Jeep.
My wife Lisa drove us home since she was the designated driver. We took I-82 toward Selah due to there is a lot of animals out at night in the Yakima River Canyon. We topped the first climb out of Ellensburg when the Jeep engine started making noise. We pulled over at the 11 mile marker/Military Road Exit. We called AAA and they took us the rest of the way home. We got to bed at 2 AM/3 AM Daylight Savings time.
It was a fun day over all.
Here are some photos of the Leavenworth Day Trip:
Here it is, March 6th 2019 and it is snowing again in the Yakima Area. We have had one snow storm after another this past month with it cold enough for the snow not to melt away. Kind of strange for this time of year to have this much snow on the ground.
Here are some photos from today around 11:30 AM in Yakima and Selah:
Day Two See Day One Here!
Sunday morning the event opened up at 10 AM. It was a sunshiny Day with a good turn out of people.
Again we took a walk around with our Leprechaun to see all the cool stuff.
It was a fun time.
Here are some photos of day two of the two day event:
