Leavenworth: There and back again

November 3, 2013

Today, Alex and I met up with his friend Matt and his girlfriend Jenica to head east over the mountains for the day. Matt and Jenica had wine to pick up and Alex and I just wanted to get out of town for the day. Other than our desired hike location being closed unexpectedly, it was a lovely day full of driving, conversation, German food and beautiful fall/winter scenery.

This is where you go to see snow during the Pacific Northwest winter, the mountains.

Alex and I had a very mini-snowball fight, because, why not!

This is the state park we didn’t get to hike around in cause it closed Nov 1st. Maybe it heard NaBloPoMo was starting…

Leavenworth may be all about the tourists, but it sure is purty.

We ended up finding a nice walk down by the river in Leavenworth that Matt and Jenica remembered from a previous visit.

On our way back, we ran into a snowstorm over the pass and were reminded why you start hauling around tire chains if you plan on driving over the mountains during the winter.

But the day ended with a beautiful sunset and then a delicious dinner over at Alex’s parents house.
