Posting a few quick pics from a recent family trip to Winthrop, WA. We rented a friend’s net-zero cabin and it was awesome! If you’re into that kind of stuff, you could spend hours on their website geeking out about the building process.
In addition to hanging out at Artemisia (the zero-energy cabin), we also went hiking, rafting, horse-back riding, and hung out at the pool with the Naneys. Thunder Knob trail is in great shape, as is Tiffany Mountain. Lost River was good for 1-2 miles, and then brushy but passable after that.
I had a minor epiphany on this trip… Although guided tours aren’t my first choice when traveling alone or with Tom, when you’re doing things with your kiddo for the very first time it is REALLY nice to have a guide. The guides can worry about snacks, logistics, etc, while we get to focus on Rowan as she floats a river or rides a horse for the first time. Neato.
