In simple terms, it is a very stable, semi-permanent tent-like structure with lattice supported walls on the inside. I guess they are originally from Mongolia. You can always google it to find out more! Our friends' yurt has a bathroom and kitchen (even with dishwasher!) with a wood stove that keeps things toasty warm! The kids love going over and exploring the outdoors. Their property is right on the Wenatchee River and the trees were glorious in their fall displays. In the past we have taken the camper for sleeping arrangements but this time we decided to have a big sleepover. So 4 adults, 4 kids (ages 6, 4, 3, 2) and 2 large dogs in the one-room structure. All went well and we had a succesful night!
On Sunday, before heading home, we went on a hike up to a fire lookout station on Sugarloaf Mountain. It was a bit more of a drive than anticipated but the view was amazing and well worth the effort. It was hard to get a photo that really captured the view to show where we were. We were on the absolute top of the mountain with large drop-offs all around and an incredible 360 degree view of mountains, valleys, lakes and rivers.
It was a great time to get away from all the daily craziness that is keeping us busy at home and to spend time with friends.
