Winthrop, Washington is a cute little town that has an old west theme...

The wood-plank sidewalks line the streets, and the whole town embraces it's gold mining history and ranch roots..

Like Leavenworth, the signs for the stores are hand painted and incorporate the western motif..

They have a museum in town with a lot of artifacts from the founders of the town and the history of how they went from a struggling gold mining town to the tourist destination they are today.. and the only thing that i absolutely loved in there was.. a sewing machine! hahaha

{check out the detailed paint job on this beauty!  it's amazin!}

We set up camp just outside of town..

Right next to the river..

{pretty convenient for dishes.. and of course this is the one time hubby picks up the camera lol..}

Check out the cute seat carved into a tree!

Even the campsite had it's own little touristy attraction lol..


Then hubby and i planned out the route for the next day by the light of the campfire.. and our handy dandy headlamp..

The morning greeted us with another sight common in Winthrop..

{so pretty!  i'd love to go up in one someday.. hint hint hubby!}

Stay tuned for more from our road trip adventures!
