    Wenatchee to Seattle, Wenatchee, WA

    June 30 in the United States

    Hi all sorry a couple of big days and no time to blog, trying to Catch up tonight.
    A reasonable early start to the day from Bonners Ferry, the plan for the day was to get to Wenatchee. We had a really restful night and a great breakfast at a diner just down the road. We expected the drive to not hold to much in terms of views or landmarks and that is just what we got.
    The countryside quickly changed from the pine laden hills of the Idaho panhandle as we moved South West towards Spokane. Ahh… Spokane where we planned to have a look around, we found on arrival that they were having an event called Hoop Fest and the city streets were diverted. We attempted to find a lookout but no good on that score as well. We paid Spokane off as a bad joke and it was chewing up time, so we continued, that said what we did see indicated that it is a lovely place.
    From Spokane, we continued west through miles and miles and miles and did I say miles of wheat fields with very little change. The scenery changed briefly when we hit a huge expanse of water and Coulee Dam, and just after a large gorge where two tectonic plates meet. We went through many small towns all seemingly a day’s ride from each other.
    One standout was Waterville where we stopped by chance and saw a museum. This museum was on of the best that we have seen with rock displays, pioneering displays, a 45 star 1900 US flag, farming implements and more. Finally, we reached the Wenatchee River and its abundant stone fruit crops. Cherries, Peaches, Nectarines, Plums, Apricots. We stopped and picked up a punnett of the best cherries I have ever eaten.
    The accommodation was scarce, and we learned that there was a state baseball championship being held. The rooms that were available were very pricey. We drove back to East Wenatchee and same applied. A decision was made to continue, but we also new that the fact that it is summer holiday we had moved into an alpine region again and the July 4 holiday might conspire against us. It did we checked hotels in Cashmere, Leavenworth, Coles Corner, Skyomish, Gold Bar and Sultan. Even Monroe had nothing. All of this meant that we had driven through what was our Saturday plan Stevens Pass. Stevens Pass was amazing again following a fast-moving river and climbing through this alpine region. The town of Leavenworth is named with all Bavarian and Swiss chalets and resorts.
    We stopped at Monroe to regroup all feeling shattered from a long day, we ate at a diner and checked the accommodation situation. Our decision was to push on into Seattle rather than to stop on the outskirts. And so, it was that we navigated in failing light into Washington states largest city, with being in Seattle a night early we formulated a new plan and turned in for the night.

    Asgard Pass

    October 1, 2017 in the United States

    Irgendwoher kam auf einmal noch ein Tag mit Auto. Oder anders, ich habe so viele Kilometer am Tag gemacht, dass ich einen Tag schneller war, als erwartet. Also was gibt es da
    Besseres, als diesen zum Wandern zu nutzen
    Speichern? Ach ja, meine Gesundheit. Seitdem ich im Yellowstone bei minus Graden genächtigt hatte, verfolgte mich ein leichter Schnupfen, was gepaart mit meiner entzündeten Achillessehne, recht garstig ist. Irgendwie stolperte ich dann aber über eine Wanderung über den Asgard Pass. Bei dem Namen konnte ich dann ja gar nicht mehr anders.
    Auch wenn ich nicht bis zum Pass ging, war die Aussicht phänomenal und schreit danach, auch den Rest der Region zu erwandern.
    Auf dem Weg dorthin bin ich durch Leavenworth gekommen, welches mit "the Bavarian Village" wirbt. Ja, es ist ein bayerisches Disneyland, in dem alles auf pseudo authentisch getrimmt ist.

    Leavenworth

    May 21, 2015 in the United States

    Wow, welch Überraschung.....mitten in den USA in den Cascadian Mountains ein stilechtes Bayrisches Dorf, sogar der Starbucks und Subway waren im Look bayrischer Häuser (zumindest so wie die Amis es annehmen). Wir sind überwältigt und lassen lieber die Bilder sprechen.....nur soviel: Die Amis sind verrückt :-)

    Chelan, Washington

    May 22, 2015 in the United States

    Nach diesem Kulturschock ging es Gott sei dank schnell weiter an einen See ganz in der Nähe, der nun wohl eher was für unseren Geschmack war. Wir haben auch endlich unser sommerliches Wetter, nach all den entbehrlichen Tagen an der Ostseite. Da freuen sich unsere Füsse, dass sie endlich mal aus den stinkenden Schuhen kommen :-) What a relief
    Die Gegend um Chelan ist extrem bekannt auch für ihren Wein, da es generell sehr trocken und warm hier ist das ganze Jahr. Es ist wirklich spannend für uns zu erleben wie sich von einer Region zur nächsten das Klima so dramatisch ändern kann. Westlich der Mountains herrscht eher feuchtes Küstenklima vor. Dagegen östlich davon wähnt man sich in der Wüste, alles trocken und selbst im Mai bekommt es hier locker 30 grad. Wir sind flexibel und nehmen beides.Read more

    Washington Pass Overlook

    July 19, 2015 in the United States

    Highest point on North Cascades Highway. Reminds us of the White Mountains in New Hampshire, with granite peaks and pines. Elevations are higher than back east though.
