It wasn’t exactly red, white and blue… more like, green, green and more green.. It was a drizzly day on the 4th of July this side of the mountains so we opted to go east where the sun is always shining.. On the way we stop by the Skykomish River, a flowing turquoise in the midst of mossy green…
Crossing Stevens Pass we descend into Tumwater Canyon where the sunshine appears over the Wenatchee River….
After stopping by Leavenworth for lunch where families are celebrating the 4th in typical fashion…
we head back home over Blewett Pass taking in the expansive views…
and home again to the rainy west side .. all in all a lovely day….
Looks like a lovely day, and as green as Norfolk, UK! That Leavenworth looks like Switzerland. Is that where the military prison is situated? (No it isn’t. I looked it up, and it’s in Kansas.)
Best wishes, Pete.
Leavenworth is a small town in eastern Washington that reinvented itself in the sixties as ‘Bavarian’ and so made itself quite the tourist attraction.. it can almost pass for a town in the Alps because of the amazing mountain scenery surrounding it… a fun place for a day trip.. Have a great day 🙂 Susanne
Gorgeous scenery! One could do worse than to have a green 4th of July!
Yes, it was a spontaneous day trip and the scenery was amazing! and fun to drive to the sunshine! 🙂
