Cascadia Girl over at has a nice write-up of weekending in Methow Valley, including where to stay and what to do. Why the interest here? Methow is where the Butter Bitch and I source much of our beef, through a meat CSA, and lamb through direct purchase. We knew that the Crown S ranchers had a reason not to cross the passes during December and January, and Cascadia Girl's photos show why. Here's hoping that everyone is keeping warm.
