Burke Gilman Trail, WA

Length: ~16 miles

With: Chris, Josh, Megan

GPS Coordinates of region: TBD

Chris got a shiny new bike for this trip. Yay, a sunny weekend day in January. Megan and Josh took us on a tour from First Place Books to Chateau Ste. Michelle, an 8 mile ride one-way, but flat and smooth.

Riding in to the winery grounds

Walking in to the winery

We took part in three separate wine tasting sessions while at Chateau Ste Michelle. Most were damn tasty, but apparently one was a bit tart.

This is the room in which you taste your quarterly wines, once you get suckered into becoming a member.

Once we were done getting drunk at the wine tasting, we headed over to Red Hook Brewery for lunch, and some beer tasting. The parking lot was PACKED. After this, the 8 mile ride home.
