Cabin in the Woods


We spent the 4day weekend at a cabin in the woods.

Friday we took our time crossing the mountain. We stopped at Twede's in North Bend. This is the restaurant featured in the TV show Twin Peaks. We had tasty burgers and picked up a cherry pie for the cabin. After a short grocery trip (we always buy too much food!) we were back on I-90 heading east.

The cabin was in Ronald, WA just outside of Roslyn (Anyone seen Northern Exposure? It was shot here). It was gorgeous! Log furniture, stone fireplaces, the works!

We spent Saturday romping in the snow. The sledding hill was right across the culdesac! We spent hours inner tubing, riding the quad and snowmobile, and playing with the dogs in the snow. We wore ourselves, and the dogs, out.

Sunday was for relaxation. After a huge and delicious breakfast we lounged for most of the morning. Watching TV and playing Wii. The girls went into Roslyn for the afternoon. We visited a cute small art gallery, took pictures, and had a beer at The Brick. The Brick is Washington's first bar! It was a neat old place. The town is small, but it has a deep history. It was fun to do a little exploring.

Monday morning came too fast. Before we knew it we were packing up and hitting the road for the long (2hr) drive home. We are rested, and worn out, in the best way. It was an excellent way to spend a long weekend.
