MixedGreens Road Trip Day 1

We spent yesterday traveling through the state from Seattle to the Yakima Valley, Tri-Cities, Walla Walla and finally dinner in Waitsburg, WA. Winery stops, picnic lunch and stunning scenery along the way. Cool drinks at hand and a fine cocktail at day’s end. Couldn’t have been sweeter.

Sagelands near Ellensburg, WA.

Cornfields now on what was once Sally’s family land. Through cornstalks, Mt. Adams in the distance.

Hops Fields

Hops outside Toppenish, WA. That cold brew you keep in the fridge . . . hops are involved.

wheat field

Wheat fields on the road from Walla Walla to Waitsburg, WA. 6:30 in the evening, beauteous land and light beginning to soften.

On the way to Waitsburg

On a side road exploration we found this gorgeous meadow with its tiny cabin.
