Wenatchee River County Park, Monitor, WA, Day 2

A Barn Along US 97
Monday, June 2, 2014, Wenatchee River County Park, Monitor, WA, Day 1 - 0 miles, 9331.4 For the Trip

I decided to accomplish two things this morning - a trip to AAA for some maps (my Oregon/Washington one is worn out) and get a haircut. The first went OK, but barbers are closed on Mondays, at least the real ones, and I have had better luck with them than the "Super Cuts, etc". So that will have to wait until tomorrow. I did stop at Albertsons to see if they had a better deal on blueberries than Safeway, and they did - 18 oz for $3.99. So, that is where I'll shoot for on Thursday. I also picked up an ear of corn for dinner.

For the afternoon I drove down US 97 to see if I could find some wildflowers near Blewett Pass. No luck with the flowers, although I did find a few. I keep meeting people that tell me how great the flowers were, but it is always a few weeks before I get to the area. I did find a barn that was in a nice location a little past the WA 970 short cut to I 90 West. On the way back I went a little West on US 2 to Leavenworth & took a photo of a bridge over the Wenatchee River. More photos at toady's LakeshoreImages page.

After that it was back to the campground for some reading & a shower. Dinner was a couple of cheese brots &grilled corn on the cob.

Until tomorrow -

  1. You should have walked across the bridge..There is a nice trail on the other side of the river. It follows a path where a huge water pipe used to be. When the water level is down there are some nice sandy beaches.
