Leavenworth Day Trip

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:

This event was eligible for a voucher toward a complimentary Discover Pass.

On Friday June 29th, 2018, volunteers headed from Selah to north of Kittitas, Washington to set up camp for the Eastern Washington Adventures Naneum Ridge State Forest Work Party.

We found a flat place to set up camp on Dawson Cutoff Road. Other volunteers showed that evening.

On Saturday morning, we meet the DNR staff at The Orchard on Coleman Creek Road. Other volunteers also came to help. At 10 AM we headed across the Naneum Ridge State Forest fixing Green Dot Markers and picking up trash. We meet back up at The Orchard with the DNR in the afternoon to load the smaller trash into their truck to haul away. The big items we piled up and gave the location to the DNR staff to pick up later.

Once camp was set up, we decided to take a sightseeing drive. We headed to the Naneum Basin, then up to Wenatchee Mountain, over snow drifts on Naneum ridge Road, and then back to camp. The trip was fun even with cold high winds, but views were not good due to the clouds very low.

On Sunday we headed across the Colockum Wildlife Area to West Bar on the Columbia River. Across the river you could see Crescent Bar. After awhile enjoying the beach, we headed back to camp taking a different route.

This was a very fun weekend thanks to all that came to volunteer. Thank you to all the volunteers, Eastern Washington Adventures Members, Kittitas County Field & Stream members, and the Department of Natural Resources.
