SLK Mother’s Day Road Trip
Murals, Wine and Hot Air Balloons
18 SLKs are expected for a weekend trip to Eastern Washington!
We’ll start just east of Seattle Friday morning, make the run over Snoqualmie Pass on I90 and hop off just west of Cle Elum where we’ll traverse the back roads into Ellensburg. From there we’ll head into Yakima by way of the Canyon Road with its twisty route along the Yakima River with a couple of photo ops.
We’ll stop for lunch downtown Yakima at the Plaza Socievole Winery tasting room and Bistro. From there we’ll head out of town to Naches Heights up a winding road to a bluff for sipping at The Tasting Room where they pour three local wineries including Nebbiolo di Klipsun, the only Italian grape grown in Washington. Next stop is the Rattlesnake Hills Wine Trail where we’ll stop at Windy Point Vineyards, Bonair Winery, Two Mountain Winery, the funky, eclectic tasting room of Paradisos del Sol for mid afternoon appetizers paired with their great wines. Next is SilverLake followed by Horizon’s Edge Winery with their fun wines:

We’ll saunter (not stumble) into Toppenish for the night, have our traditional SLK cocktail hour before a casual Mexican dinner at at El Porton.
Saturday morning we have a surprise in store, remember to bring your straw hat…
Back on the road to Walla Walla we will stop for a photo op at the controversial 1922 historical icon TeaPot Dome Gas Station and then into the Tri-Cities for lunch at Tagaris Winery and Taverna.
Next stop, Walla Walla for dinner at Whitehouse-Crawford Restaurant, in a historic 100 year old building downtown Walla Walla serving fresh wild caught fish and local beef. After dinner we’ll enjoy the famous Saturday Nite Glow Hot Air Balloons…
