We knew we would be traveling by train and motor coach to Leavenworth and Walla Walla and having some wine tasting along the way. What we did not know was how luxurious and inviting the accommodations would be, how picturesque the scenery, how delicious the food and wine, how much we would learn about the people, the history, the land, the bountiful crops and the waterways. The apple tasting was(almost) as much fun as the wine tasting. There was something for everyone from shopping, to museums, to hikes, to art walks, to delightful restaurants and great company. Guy loves his state and loves sharing its beauty and history. And I am thrilled to have been a part of the tour.
