The Methow River at Winthrop

We recently stayed at the River-run Inn on the Methow Rover in Winthrop. I have already blogged some details and pictures of Winthrop town centre but wanted to share some images of the river and to show off some more the capabilities of the amazing Leica X1.

The River Run Inn is a fantastic place with wonderfully spacious and clean rooms. It’s location by the Methow River is the icing on the cake. Anyone looking for a place to stay on their way through the North Cascades National Park should stop by and check it out. It even has a fantastic pool and some swings to keep the kids occupied.

Another advantage is that it is only a short walk into town where Winthrop’s shops and restaurants await you. Three Finger Jacks, The Old Schoolhouse and The Riverside Cafe are all great places to eat and relax.

I love the way the Leica exposes images. Kept it on automatic mode for all shots and it never let me down.

One more…….

There were hammocks tied to some of the trees for chilling out. Oh and the kids loved swinging in them.

Not the most exciting photogragh in the world but again I love what the Leica has done with the exposure.

  1. Simply stunning pictures of the Methow River and the gardens of the River Run Inn at Winthrop. You wouldn’t have thought that to get there from Castlegar, we had driven through a blizzard and that the roads were buried in 8ft of snow just a few miles away in the North Cascades.

  2. Just wanted to say that this is the perfect place to stay if you are planning to drive on throught the North Cascades. A night in the Old School House, with live Jazz bands and breakfast at either the Riverside Cafe or Three Fingered Jacks all in town, would make for a perfect 1 night stop over before your trip.

  3. Beautiful photos! If you would rather be close to downtown Winthrop but one block away in a quiet neighborhood setting, check out the Badger House Inn.
