Day two brought more sunshine and an opportunity to take full advantage of our drive back to Seattle. First things first, we had to find some breakfast. We stumbled on a fantastic little nook called the Wild Huckleberry – I went with the sausage and apple omelet while Jen opted for a well-balanced mix of eggs, bacon and French Toast. It was a very “folksy” restaurant with the clientele and staff teaming up to give that perfect “locals-only” vibe. With a bellies full, we said goodbye to Wenatchee and made our way back up Washington State Route 2 for more exploration.
The drive was beautiful as we wound our way through the cascades on 97 towards I90. Along the way we happened to pick a side road for a little adventure; after 8 miles of climbing on a dirt road we ended up finding a hidden gem in Red Top Lookout which offered some of the most stunning views we have ever seen! Who knew that we could stumble onto something this amazing!
Back in the car we decided to hunt down a small snack to tie us over until dinner. We tried Roslyn (where Northern Exposure was filmed) but left without finding what we were looking for. By chance we stopped at the Suncadia Resort just outside of Roslyn and really lucked out! We ordered a few Rieslings, a small meat and cheese plate and a Tuna Tartar – an absolutely perfect mix to get us home!
Reflecting on our weekend get-a-away, we realized that as newbies to the state of Washington, we have so much to see. Lake Chelan is one of our next destinations along with Orcas Island and Friday Harbor. So much to do, and with so much time to do it! Nice. For more pics from this little get-a-way, CLICK HERE >>
