Final Day 3

Welcome to all of you who have gone on this little trip with us.  We spent the second night in a town called Leavenworth.  When the lumber trade started to dry up, this town was on its way to a slow death!  Because of its lovely mountain setting,some very smart people decided to make it into a little Bavarian town.  In fact,  some say that Leavenworth is more Bavarian than Bavaria!! It is now a thriving tourist destination! It was on the trvel channel a few years back in their small town Christmas special.

 Here is where we spent night 2.

 The whole town has this Bavarian feel.



 Even the pet store!!!!!

 Are we now in Switzerland???!!!

Even Starbucks!!!!!!!

 Heading home through the Cascade Mountians.





 It's getting cloudier.


Almost home!! Thanks for joining me!
