Vacation in Methow Valley
Saturday, February 08, 2020
I have been away for a week, skiing and snowshoeing in Methow Valley,Washington. It was a very fun trip, and I got a lot of exercise and activity in beautiful surroundings with friends.
I traveled with my friend Linda. We stopped in Wenatchee, and took a walk along the river before checking into our hotel. And the next day, we stopped for a short walk along the Columbia River as we continued on our journey to our destination.
At the Lodge in Mazama, I skied each morning, and snowshoed with Linda in the afternoon.
Because of my arthritic knees, I skied on the easy loops in the meadow, instead of skiing on the more advanced trails with the group. I really love skiing, but the snowshoe trails were also really beautiful.
We had every type of weather. Beautiful sunshine, freezing fog, heavy snow, and rain. But we were able to enjoy the trails known matter what the weather conditions were.
The food at the lodge was very good, served family style, and I ate too much. It feels good to be back in my own home, eating my usual foods. I am grateful that I did not gain a lot of weight on this vacation; the exercise helped a lot.
On the long journey home yesterday, I enjoyed seeing the Sunset over the high desert.
