The joy and curse of traveling by car, is you can pretty much do what you want within the limitation of time, distance and stamina!
On our trip to WA we skipped our favorite winery in favor of getting there without an extra day. We decided to hit it on the way home. It ended up adding an extra 2 hours… and since we weren’t trying any other wineries.. probably not necessary, but it did break up the monotony of the drive!
We got 4 of our favorites and then splurged on another one we tasted and really liked!
The rest of that day was just getting to Boise – to sleep in a king size bed! Ahhh! MIL and FIL have a double bed, and with 2 people that spread out and the pups… oy!
So we pulled the block out curtains and enjoyed the night!
The next day was trying to get to Moab so we could visit Arches the next day before heading home!
We got there too late and too pooped to enjoy all that Moab had to offer! Breweries and fun restaurants!
The next morning we did the “if you have 1 and 1/2 hours to spent” trip thru the national park
From there we scooted home as fast as we could!
We were tempted to hit our favorite wineries in Grand Junction again – but decided a side trip was not what we wanted to do, so our next order of business is to find them in the big liquor stores locally!
It was a fun trip – not very many fights, or getting lost!
We are considering doing the same this to my parents this coming year… we’ll see!
