What a treat to live in one of the most beautiful places in America. I have called Washington State my home for almost all my adult life. Leavenworth is a small community two hours east of me. I typically drive highway two over Steven’s Pass when I take house guests to enjoy this city. As one reaches this destination, you are overwhelmed by the sheer majestic views of a once logging town and center of the railroads.
Leavenworth has since become a huge tourist’s travel spot for those wanting to experience the European lifestyle. The town of 2000 becomes wildly alive on weekends.
It truly is a happy place to feel alive in a town that takes you back to a more simple life. Get this. The town wax incorporated only a little over a 100 years ago.
I am not one for big driving trips, but this one is a must every time I get a chance to take a friend or family.
Where else can you find a prehistoric nutcracker!!!!
