walla walla :: part 3

monday (6/30) :: day 4
Me and Pat got up relatively early, packed up, said our goodbyes, and headed for home. We had decided to go a different route this time which would allow us to make a pit stop in Hood River, Oregon, which is one of our new favorite places. We were definitely wined out by now, so beer was a welcomed change as well! We went to Full Sail Brewery for some lunch when we first got there, and then headed to Double Mountain for some tastes, and finally Pfriem which is hands down our favorite in the area. Just like last time we tasted everything and shared the Belgian style mussels and frites before taking off for home with full bellies and beautiful views of Mt. Hood out our windows.

[[ leaving washington. driving through the columbia river gorge. wind turbines. BOOM mt. hood in your face. lunch and tastes at full sail. double mountain. river views from our table at pfriem. flights, mussels, and frites. ]]

Walla Walla was a really fun experience, and I am glad that we had Pat's family there to navigate us through what would have otherwise been an overwhelming web of wineries. The best part is that we brought so much home from that trip that we will be enjoying its souvenirs for years. I am also glad that we made another quick stop in Hood River on the way home, I still really want to spend an entire weekend there one of these days.
