#FriFotos - Festive in the Cascades

By December 21, 2012

Follow me on:

Leavenworth, Washington at Christmas

While reading this mesmerizing, multimedia piece from the New York Times about an avalanche in the Cascades in February 2012, I came across the town of Leavenworth, Washington. Situated about two hours east of Seattle in the Cascade Mountains, the former logging town of Leavenworth re-branded itself in the early 1960s as a Bavarian-style village. This photo, submitted for this week's #FriFotos theme "festive," shows Leavenworth at Christmas, one of the most popular times to visit because of its Lighting Festival. The town looks absolutely inviting to me and somehow warm despite all the snow.

To learn more about this little bit of Bavaria in the Pacific Northwest, visit the Leavenworth website.

In the meantime, I'm taking a short break from posting on the blog until after the Christmas holidays. Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!
