Custer’s Last Stand at the Battle of Little Bighorn

I had no idea what to expect when we planned this trip. Reading about historical battleground sites led me to believe we would walk up to a big open field and just stand there, staring out into the vast openness, feeling uninspired. For me, this place offered more. Observing history outside of a book is incredibly fascinating for me and I love sharing that excitement with my family.

Weekend Getaway Exploring Wenatchee and Leavenworth

Our basecamp was the Wenatchee River County Park, or WRCP. Love this place. WRCP has a great facility with easy access from State Highway 2 in Monitor, Washington. Laid out like a park with large lawns for spreading out and plenty of room for the kids to run. My favorite loop is [Read More…]
