Leavenworth!


An invitation from Rae and Andrew to stay at Rae's Parents' Cabin in Leavenworth was too-o-o good to pass. So, Greg and I stopped off at Les Schwabes to get our tire chains on our way to this Bavarian town I have heard so much of. Luckily, the roads were well plowed and we didn't need to use the chains at all. But there was definitely SNOW! 18 inches of it on Sunday!

Leavenworth was a nice change of pace for us compared to the normal errand running across town. While at the cabin, if a painter where to looked through the windows, he could have a painting of gathered people chatting around the fire holding a cup with steam wafting from it.

That was the night before. The following morning, we went to the rental shop to get me a pair of snowshoes, and headed out to the SNOW. We spent about 4 hours hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail, and hopped over many covered little streams. Very Pretty. The scene, of course, was gorgeous. But enough of my chatting-"A picture is worth a thousand words."





Thanks again Rae and Andrew!
