The original Wine Country Trek with a great new route beginning and ending in Prosser, Washington.
The route roams through Yakima Valley past wineries, vineyards, cherry and apple orchards.
You will leave Prosser Saturday morning and enjoy a pleasant ride along the Yakima River. Then turn north and pedal past vineyards and orchards with stops for great snacks and lunch at a winery. After lunch you will coast back into Prosser and enjoy tasting wine at local wineries. In the evening you will be treated to a wonderful prime rib and salmon dinner accompanied by award winning wines provided (as always) by the local Knights of Columbus.
After dinner you will have the choice of attending the "Night Glow" or participating in Prosser's harvest festival doings in historic downtown Prosser.
Early Sunday morning you will have the opportunity to watch the balloons take off for their morning flight. After breakfast, you will leave Prosser and head east through more beautiful farm country. Again, the rest stop snacks are tasty and plentiful. Lunch at another winery and back to Prosser for showers and departure.
This year we are offering the opportunity to camp on Friday night for an extra charge of $10.00 - we hope this will make it more convenient for our out of town participants.
