Leavenworth!

Let's head to Leavenworth (2 hours West of Seattle) and check out the winter wonderland that it is right now! The holiday decorations are still up and it looks incredibly pretty.

I've upped it to 3 cars, 4 people each.  Leave Seattle 10am, arrive in Leavenworth around noon. There are small hikes around the area we can do, then grab some lunch. Afterwards, walk around the lit town and head back.

Plan on spending the day there and be back by 7ish. There are wineries or breweries if people were up for that.

When rsvp'ing - please state if you can drive or need a ride. Thanks!

 

**Just added location - let's meet at the park and ride under I-5 in Green Lake. From there we head east over the 520 to Hwy 2. I'll probably open it up to 1 more car load closer to the time. I'm liking the interest!

    Molly - are you still in need of a ride? What area do you live in? I might be able to pick you up on my way.

    Bummer Marie, next time!
    Weather wise - snow is forecasted, temp is 34 for Sat. Chains are not required (as of today) for the pass, just said recommended. I'll update again tomorrow. If people have them, throw them in the car, just in case.

    Leavenworth sounds great!! Any chance that the group would be interested in snowmobiling while we are there? It's a lot of fun :-)

      I would be really into that but I'm wondering how it would cut into the day versus exploring everywhere. If we don't I would be up for another trip to focus on that.

    Hmm, not sure if my last post showed up, unfortunately I am unable to go to Leavenworth this Saturday.

    I can't go, I am really disappointed as Leavenworth is the one place I was so looking forward to going. Unfortunately I have to attend a work event (that I thought was the following week) congrats to someone on the waiting list though....

    Absolutely Angela, that's a given.

    Just thought I would mention that maybe riders could make a donation to the drivers for gas(?) It will be almost a 5 hour drive round-trip, so anything helps.

    I have a car and theoretically can drive, but it's not the most reliable vehicle (I sort of beat it up driving it cross country.)

    Glad you made it on here Angela!

    So drivers wise - we have Angela, Mindi, Vicki, Michael and maybe Kara. That's wonderful and plenty, thank you for offering! I think some would prefer not to drive. Depending on the weather this week, chains may be a must (they were not 3 weeks ago when I was there). I'll update closer to the weekend about the weather. If people need to be back by a certain time too, please mention that and those folks can sit together. Please update your status this week if you are unable to attend! See you in snowy Leavenworth (well, at the p/r first but... :)

      Oh, well. If I get in then great but you should arrange another car in case I don't.

    Thanks Ed! We definitely have a lot of drivers, which is great. I think we can skip on the snowshoes too. This is more exploring the area, kind of event. There is a river walk I would like to do, so wear waterproof shoes/boots, but it will probably be pretty packed snow. Its 3 miles and we don't have to do the whole thing, whatever the group wants. http://www.iciclevillage.com/waterfront-park-leavenworth-washington-map.pdf

    I'm good with driving and have 4 wheel drive.

    Hi Amanda, Nice meeting you last night. Leavenworth sounds like fun! I can drive if needed. (I have room for 3) I have chains for my car.

    Good point Treela - the roads are always changing, so closer to the time I'll look and post accordingly.

    January 14, 2013

  • Treela

    Amanda, How are the roads getting there? (since you were just there). Do people need to be concerned about that? It looks like some people can only drive if the roads are clear. I need a ride as well, but want to make sure we have "safe" transporation :)

    Would love to go and can drive... If no 4wd is needed.

    January 9, 2013

  • Georgia

    I've realized just this year that I've never actually been and really need to get out to Leavenworth sometime; this will be perfect!
    I am unable to drive.

    January 9, 2013

  • Michael T.

    I can drive if we don't need 4wd.
