Dan and Emily came to visit us earlier this week. We did a lot of wine tasting up and down the valley…so many choices, and such a variety of wines, had delicious dinners together, and drove to see Mt. St. Helens. It’s eruption in 1980 made for perfect soil for those vines we enjoyed the fermented juices from! You get to go sooooooo close to what’s left of the volcano. We saw Mt. Rainier, without clouds if you can believe it, on our way to the other side of the Cascades. Lots of beautiful things to see here in Washington state. If you haven’t been here, you need to visit us!
