Tourists in our own state
May 24, 2011 § 8 Comments
We decided to take a long weekend and become tourists in our own state. It’s not very often that we get to travel off the beaten path. This is one view of the Wild Horse Wind & Solar Facility near Vantage, WA. They are amazingly huge! Over the last few years we have watched more and more of these wind turbines being built along the ridges in Central Washington.
The Spokane Falls are so full of water right now. The people on the bridge were getting wet from the spray shooting up off the falls.
We also saw one of these T@b camper trailers and I was dying to take it home with us. They are SO stinkin’ cute! But not this time. Maybe some day. They are no longer being made but there are still used ones for sale around the country.
Even though the famous Buggy Barn quilt shop is not very far off the freeway, we have never stopped before. They really pack in the fabric and inspiration in such a small shop. And I love that it is just outside of town on a country farm. The building is an old carriage house.
Between The Buggy Barn in Reardan, WA and Stash in Walla Walla, WA I couldn’t help but enhance the stash a wee bit. Don’t you just love to say Walla Walla Washington?? We need to go back again when it is warmer. We were told that is is an awesome place to bicycle around the country.
Monday, oops… Tuesday. But it feels like a Monday.
