A plan just around this time of the year in 2017!
The Big Plan
It's Holiday Time!!
On a random day before Christmas, I was talking to a friend about places near Seattle to visit during the holidays. We ended up discussing this small Bavarian city, Leavenworth, around 2-hour drive from Seattle on a clear day. I came back home and did some research on this place and other places to see near it before finalizing the trip. It was going to be a small weekend getaway.
Leavenworth is one of the top recommended places to visit near Seattle to enjoy Christmas decorations and festivities.
A Series Of Contrasting Weather In Just 134 Miles Range!
Everything was planned and we set on our road trip on 17th December around 11 am in the morning from Seattle. We were glad that the skies were clear that day. Normally people warn you about driving safe to Leavenworth because of the heavy snow on the way that makes roads slippery.
There was a vast variation in weather as we crossed different towns and cities. It was sunny in Seattle and one could see green trees and clear hills all along. When we reached North Bend, it was all snowy till we reached Cle Elum, which was again sunny and green. On our way, we crossed a beautiful Wenatchee river, originating from Wenatchee lake and passing Leavenworth. At our final destination, Leavenworth there were green trees with bits of snow. The temperature was also not too low ~ 2 degrees Celsius. (Luckily, we chose a good day to travel. Pheww!!!)
