I recently got a new tattoo (post and pics of that later) that says "Il vaut mieux faire que dire," which is french and basically translates as "actions speak louder than words," (literally it's better to do than to say.) I got it to remind myself to stop SAYING and start DOING. So this past weekend after a drive to Easton, I saw a place I've always wanted to visit and, seeing those words on my wrist, decided today was as good a day as any. Get OUTSIDE, tonya, (and family!) and DO SOMETHING.
I've lived in Wenatchee 12 years and have driven by these amazing rock formations many, many times. Known as the Peshastin Pinnacles, they are accesible to anyone at Peshastin Pinnacles State Park. There are walking trails around the park for the non-rock-climber and they all sort of circle the rocks and the gorgeous orchards that border them. There was always something neat to see, be it some intrepid soul scaling a rock face or just a jaw-dropping view of the upper Wenatchee valley. Reminds me that I was 100% right in my spur-of-the-moment decision 12 years ago to up-and-quit my job in Seattle and move here with my 2 young daughters, despite the fact I had no employment lined up and only knew 1 person in the whole town. I loved this area the first time I saw it and knew it was the place for me to be.
