At long last, the final portion of our Thanksgiving trip to Leavenworth, Washington! As you read in part 1, we stayed in a tiny house and enjoyed Leavenworth’s adorable charm and delicious food (we’re still talking about the breakfast biscuits and wood-fired pizza…drool). In part 2, we hiked to frozen Colchuck Lake (in the glorious, beautiful snow). And now we’re doing a few more hikes!
We tried to squeeze in as much as we could in our final day in Leavenworth, so we started with breakfast and the best Americanos at Argonaut (I’m obsessed). And then we hit the trails on Icicle Ridge, a mountain that overlooks the little town of Leavenworth. Now, in our little hiking guide book, it said this 4-mile hike would take 3 hours. We laughed this off, thinking we’d knock this bad boy out in a little over an hour. Guys, it took us the full 3 hours. It was so steep. And quite slippery on the way down, I might add!
But the views were well worth the burning legs. The ridge looks out over the whole town, with a pretty impressive backdrop of peaks in every direction.
By the way, these flannel lined jeans kept me looking super dorky (hello, baggy pants), but they were the absolute best for warmth. I will love them forever.
