We drove to the other side of the mountains to go wine tasting in the Yakima Valley. On the drive, we stopped to snap some pictures and ran into some families foraging for mushrooms. This is something I’ve always wanted to do. I’m looking into a guided tour for the next nice day (which, in this country, could be some time next fall!).
We did the wine trip a few years ago and I was impressed by the countryside, the quality of wine, and the prices. This time around the trip felt a little more touristy and the prices certainly reflected that, but we had a wonderful time. The weather was perfectly fall. We stopped at a a farm stand that had delicious pears, apples, peaches, honey, and all things pickled. We came home with a trunk full of goodies. I think some peach cobbler is in the works for later in the week.
