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:

Photos: Snowing again in the Yakima Area – March 6 2019

Snowing again in the Yakima Area

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:

Photos: A Fun Find in the Yakima River Canyon

A Fun Find in the Yakima River Canyon
Photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets / Eastern Washington Tourism

On Thursday February 21st, 2019 the weather was nice enough to get out and do something.

My son’s dog “Crunch” and I took the Jeep for a drive in the Yakima River Canyon.

I stopped off at Mile Post 8 Boat Launch to stretch my legs. I parked next to this paved trail I had never went down before. I thought I would check it out. I forgot Crunch’s leash at home, so I left him in the Jeep to take a quick look down the trail.

Down at the Yakima River I was checking out the icebergs when I spotted something green with shinny things on it. I snapped a photo and it started running off. I chase it up the trail toward the parking lot. At the parking lot Crunch stopped the green thing since I was chasing it. Since Crunch pinned it down, I tied the green thing up and brought it home.

Here are some photos of my adventure:
