I just returned from a super fun trip with 3 great friends. We took Amtrak from Vancouver Washington to Leavenworth, Washington. It was a 3 1/2 hour trip to Seattle on the "Coast Starlight" and then another 3 and 1/2 hours to Leavenworth on the "Empire Builder". The train ride was a very pleasant surprise. It was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The food was even good!
|Of course, I LOVE Leavenworth! I love all things Bavarian, Tyrolean and Scandinavian!|
|Here we are as we begin our day of shopping. From the left: Lori, Marion, Colleen and Moi!|
|Leavenworth still had all their Christmas lights up. It was quite magical. If we had more time, we may have gone for a sleigh ride, but I don't think there was quite enough snow for that.|
|We just had one day to shop, but it was enough. We had to be back on the train verrrrry early (6:00 AM!!)|
|Here's Lori waiting outside the "Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory" :Our first stop AND last stop!|
