Last week, my friend Alice invited me to go on a little road trip with her. She was planning to head Southeast to fetch her grandbaby. Her son-in-law...who, in his early thirties, happens to be just a few months younger than Alice...would be meeting us half-way from his home in Oregon.
If you only picture rain forests, ferry boats, and piping hot espresso when "The Emerald State" comes to mind...you might be a little surprised by a good portion of the terrain of Eastern Washington.
Isn't God amazing!!!
Alice had been wanting to show me a little town on the way to Bend, (Oregon)..which has some really cute shops. Unfortunately, it turned out that said town was 45 minutes PAST our meeting point with Alice's son-in-law....in Goldendale, Washington.
We decided to drive around the lil' town a bit...we didn't see any shops...but...
...we did see this.
This is the view of Mt. Adams from Goldendale!
If you'd like to live in the shadow of a 12,276 foot volcano...
This house is for sale!
Wouldn't The Little Red Shop look lovely in this ol' beauty!!!
Well, moving a wee bungalow 1 block is one thing.
Moving this painted lovely 2 1/2 hours across cowboy country...would be quite a different story!
I would have loved to see inside the house...but we didn't have time. We were planning to head on back to Yakima to do a little treasure hunting...(with an already sleepy toddler in tow). I won't mention the fantastic things I found there...then I might just have to post about them...on another day.
The Charles Newell House was built in 1891, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Speaking of cowboy country...
