Who knew?

Turns out I didn't need to go so far from home in order to live in Malaga...

There's a Malaga in Washington as well! Apparently it's southeast of Wenatchee. But, I don't know what that means, so let's consult the eerily omniscient Google...

"Oh! It's in THAT part of Washington..."
If you are more of a big-picture person, here's a better map for you...



For those that are blown away by this new information and are dying for more on this, here it is: 

Malaga is a community or populated place located in Chelan County at latitude 47.372 and longitude -120.201. 

The elevation is 682 feet.

Incredible you say? There's more...

One of the only two photos that came up in a Google images search for "Malaga, WA" that seemed usable for this post. This is Meadow Lake, I think. I also think there are three lakes in Malaga, WA. Information is hard to come by...

The only other usable photo. A beer brewer, I assume, in extremely short shorts. Bottoms up, Malaga!
Of course, there's always more to anything than numbers and statistics, so to really get to know Malaga, WA, I did a Google search for news from the area and came up with this...



From the news story: 

"Ruby Davisson-Rumbolz, a 10-year old Golden Retriever, must believe in the adage 'an apple a day keeps the Veterinarian away.' Kellie Davisson snapped this photo of her dog outside her home. Davisson and husband Rod Rumbolz live in Malaga. 'Ruby has come full circle coming back to the Wenatchee area where she really loves living around so many orchards,' Davisson said. 'She is such a funny dog because she loves all kinds of fruit, especially apples and cherries.' Davisson adopted Ruby from a Wenatchee family while she was living in Spokane."

See, this is why you come to this blog...
