Hello ladies, did you remember to "fall behind"? While I love getting that extra hour of sleep, I really don't like the thought of darkness settling in so much earlier! How about you?
Since we've moved out here to the Pacific Northwest, hubby and I try to explore our little slice of paradise as much as we can! So yesterday we took a road trip to Leavenworth, a beautiful and quaint Bavarian style town amid the Cascade Mountains. We'd been there several times before, and thought we could catch the tale end of fall colors enroute. Well, we did manage to see some color, but also lots of snow, too!
These photos simply do not do the gorgeous scenery justice! I wish that you could all have come along with me yesterday, the snow covered mountains were just stunning!
Luckily there was no snow on the roads. When it gets bad, drivers are required to put chains on their cars. Yikes!
We love the town of Leavenworth, and thankfully it wasn't as busy as it was there in the summer. The first time we visited in August, it was in the upper 80's. Yesterday it was just above freezing! Luckily I thought to take along my winter coat!
Another summer shot.
And speaking of snow covered mountains, the next photos of the Olympic Mountains, is the view that we are treated to from our home!
That's the Puget Sound, and Camano Island that you see in the distance. Aaahhhh, I don't think I could ever get tired of this view!
