Crushed grapes, one of the processes to making wine. There is a lot of sampling that wine in Prosser Washington. We were to spend a few days with friends at Wine Country RV Park in Prosser Washington. We have gone every year for four years now. It is always a great time. This trip was Joanne and I. Cody and the dogs would be at home, big brother Jeff would watch them.
We left right after work and made the drive to Prosser. We arrived at the RV park just after 7 pm and got set up in our spot. There ended up being 8 RV rigs in attendance with our group, friends and friends of friends. It sure was nice seeing everyone once again. Although some were for shorter visits.
The next morning it was time to taste the wines! We would travel to Baker City area and try four wineries that day. Our favorite for the whole trip was our stop at Goose Ridge Winery. What a great place, great food, great wine and great staff. First thing was a stop at the Farmers Market in town.
We returned to the RV Park and did a little wine tasting at the park office. Then a return back to the campers for dinner and visiting with friends. A great day.
The next morning Joanne and I went out in the morning to do a little bit of geocaching before catching back up with friends to do some wine tasting at a few other wineries. All our friends but one couple left the RV Park for their homes or other destinations.
We had another great night back at camp and enjoyed the night. The next day Joanne and I would do a bit more geocaching. We found some very neat spots while geocaching. We also really enjoyed Granger with all the dinosaurs around town. We found several memorials too. There is a lot of patriotism in the area.
We returned to camp and met up with friends. A little more wine tasting before returning back to camp and enjoy the night. This would be our last night at the park.
The next morning it was time to leave. We said our goodbyes and made our way home. We did take our time going home while going the backroads and geocaching. We ended up making the 3 hour trip into a 6 1/2 hour trip home. It was a lot of fun and we saw some great places on the backroads.
Eventually it was time to get home. We had such a wonderful trip. Really relaxing and so much fun exploring the region. Always a great time seeing friends as well. We have made this trip every year for four years. We will return again to Prosser this August for an event. Once again next year we will return but this time for another event in June in 2018.
