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.
