Mountain Biking Leavenworth

 A fun weekend with friends exploring a new trail. Xanadu in Peshastin gets a big thumbs up from our crew.

Absolutely gorgeous views on this one! I haven't been riding much this year so was proud of myself for making it up most of the 4 mile climb for some photos and the view. I prefer a mellower cross country ride, but my downhill riding husband LOVED IT!


2 mile climb on a lovely dirt road...


Another 2 miles on a wide single track.

Plain Hardware pit stop for coffee, nails and lightbulbs.

Documenting dive bars for my personal painting projects.

Shuttle service by yours truly the day before near the Leavenworth Ski hill. Hubby says not to tell anyone they got shuttled to the top...

Extra bonus, beer and wine at the Leavenworth Ski Hill while I waited for my riders!!!

vacation Rental, Fall Roadtrip Leavenworth, Plain Wa

Plain WA, our little secret spot between Lake Wenatchee and Leavenworth. Go take a hike or float and then spend the rest of the day poking around Plain.
I hope you'll take the detour. 


Foot bridge across the Wenatchee river


With the late spring snow, its still floating season!


Awesome new swings and playground at the church.


Wine and food trucks and lots of outdoor seating are perfect on weekend afternoons.


Pick up whatever you forgot at Just Plain Grocery...


Say hi to this guy at the grocery store and check out their incredible collection of taxidermy!


Our favorite Diner, the best homemade BBQ (and bacon!)


A trip through Plain is not complete without a visit to the Hardware Store. Get your coffee and Plain hardware gear. Fabulous selection of gifts and all your hardware and lumber needs!


See you soon!

Wine Tasting in Leavenworth

Truth is you can easily keep yourself busy in our little town of Plain. After a local hike, bike ride or horseback riding, I recommend a wine tasting at Plain Cellars.

A charming tasting room and plenty of outdoor seating around the back.


 You'll find A Taste of Plain Food Truck serving up deliciousness on Saturdays and Sundays. 


 Tell them we sent you!

It's a magical time of the year in the Cascades. Heres a few shots of Poofy's at Christmas time. Happy Holidays from all of us. We wish you good health and happiness in 2022.

The sauna and covered patio for year round coziness.


The rest of the house is hidden behind the tree, but I loved seeing the sunshine today!

My favorite time of the year, Fall in the cascades. Did a quick check in at Poofys on my way to the BC Okanagan to visit with dear friends before the wineries close for the season!

Leavenworth getting ready for the Oktoberfest weekends.


Fall colors on the Chiwawa loop road were incredble! 


It was lovely to sit under the patio and listen to the rain fall.
 

 Highway 2, I had to pull over to take a quick shot.
