We took a side road in search of wineries, which turned out to be closed but led us into scenic swooping roads up hills and past lakes. We faked right into the Wenatchee forest to pick up coffee to go with the donut and just as we were about to pick up the 2 home found the side road leading there was closed for culvert fitting and we had to go 18 miles back to Leavenworth on the detour.
Not only was this more fun twisty roads and more jokes about Plain (how can you have a Fruited Plain farm? But I like the Just Plain Grocery) but we also got to see the mad Bavarian kitsch of Leavenworth proper. Coo! Everything looks like a chalet with murals or fancy floral borders everywhere and gothic script on everything includimg the gas station sign. Now we're back to the 2 and it runs along a white water riverbank with mountain slopes towering above.
