We are leaving Twisp, WA this AM traveling west across the Cascades to Bothell, WA just north of Seattle where we will spend a couple of weeks. Looking forward to the Pike Place Market in Seattle along with many other local attractions. Hoping for decent weather :-)

Arrived at Lake Pleasant RV Park ... beautiful, quiet, secluded, scenic and lots of ducks and geese in the lake. Still raining!

First stop: Twisp, WA. Staying at River Bend RV  Park right on the Methow river. Large pull through site, grassy and very clean. The views out our Providence picture window are spectacular.

The river, wildlife and a wide variety of birds including the the state bird Willow Goldfinch, Orioles and Osprey diving into the river for fish. It is also common to see Bald Eagles flying low along the river as reported by locals. Hope to see one!

We visited Prosser, WA yesterday, advertised as the birthplace of Washington wines. There are at least a couple dozen wineries in this small town including Hogue, Snoqualmie, Heaven's Cave and Alexandria Nicole Cellars. Snoqualmie has become one of our favorites. Winemaker Joy Andersen has worked magic at the winery since 1991 and features popular varietals including a full line of organic wines. We sampled her Syrah for the first time and loved it. If you visit the Columbia Valley region put Prosser on your list of stops.
