Winter Wonderland

Recently I traveled with my good friend Elaine to Leavenworth, Washington.

I had heard of this charming village of Leavenworth, a Bavarian getaway in the heart of Washington State at the base of 8,000 foot high Cascade Mountains, but had not been there. During the months of December and January the entire town is jeweled with lights and covered with snow. It was enchanting!

One morning we explored the Waterfront Park where the trails wind along the Wenatchee River and through quiet riverbank forests. Here I am.....

Cold and hungry we happened upon the Gingerbread House at the edge of town.

Too perfect!

Another adventure while in Leavenworth was skiing at Stevens Pass. A cold but sunny day........a rare treat in the middle of winter in Washington.

Leavenworth is truly a winter wonderland.
