Day 44 – We drove from Seattle through the Cascade Mountains on Hwy 2 to the Leavenworth RV Park (Thousand Trails park). The scenery was AWESOME!! The drive was very stressful, though! Lots of winding roads, narrow bridges, steep grades up to 4000′, and cars frequently lined up behind us wanting to go faster. Carla drove most of it and she did great!
We saw miles and miles of this kind of scenery just west of Leavenworth. I even saw a couple of groups of very large trout!
Below is the hill that I used to sled down in the winter time. It’s neat to see our kids standing by it! They have to patch the grass after every winter because of how much use it gets.
This is not my photo below, but this shows you what it looks like in the wintertime when they light up the street and kids are sledding:
There are very dusty roads around the campground. That is probably the only downside of this place. With our WiFiRanger we were able to pick up the clubhouse Wi-Fi signal from site number 90, which is a pull thru site with only water and electricity, but not far from the clubhouse. The actual town of Leavenworth is about 15 miles away, but it is a beautiful drive along with the Wenatchee River.
Day 45 – The next day, we left the Leavenworth area and drove across eastern Washington toward Idaho. It’s crazy how different Eastern Washington looks compared to the rest of the state, and it changes so quickly! After the black looking mountains, it changes to grassy hills and farmland.
